‘Hayato’ and ‘Kanna’ images and details about the update!


 

Thanks to our really good friend, Uni of Silverbullet, we have been given a tip about an article detailing the classes with a bunch of screen shots of each class. You can find the original article here : http://www.onlinegamer.jp/news/201207100001/

I’m not sure exactly what to make of these classes, but these animations are really neat. Jump inside for more!

 
 
Summary of the article :

-The content was made in Korea and developed specifically for Japan.
-The Korean team studied a lot about Japanese history and drew from drama, anime and video games related to the Sengoku Era.
-The idea of the story of the Sengoku content is a “what-if” scenario of Oda Nobunaga being a Demon King and Uesugi Kenshin being a woman.
-We will be getting free character slots for each of the classes.
-Hayato will be a warrior class with fast attacks. It seems its main focus is being swift so it will have fast movement speed, fast attacking speed, critical rate boosts, and will have stun abilities.
-Hayato will have attacks with very huge range, meaning he will specialize in mobbing situations, but he will have to rely on dodging monster attacks to survive.
-Hayato will use a brand new weapon called “Katana,” using Battoujutsu, or the “art of sword drawing,” meaning he will have his sword sheathed during normal poses, but will draw his sword to attack monsters.
-Since Hayato will feature speed as his main selling point, he will have small HP and defense compared to other warriors, to keep game balance in check.
-Some Hayato’s skill names are :
五月雨刃 (Blade of a Five-Month Rain)
一閃 (Flash)
神速無双 (Swiftness Unmatched)
昇竜旋 (Rising Dragon Rotation)
旋風斬 (Whirlwind Kill)
飛燕 (Flying Swallow)
 
 
-Kanna will be a Magician type class.
-Kanna will fight alongside her fox companion.
-Instead of MP, Kanna will use Spiritual Power to attack.
-Kanna’s Spiritual Power will heal naturally, rather than by means of MP potions.
-As it stands, Magicians are a pretty unpopular class, since they’re weak at bosses, so due to disgruntled opinions from players, they’ve decided to make Kanna a more boss-oriented class.
-Some of Kanna’s attacks include :
紫扇白狐 (Purple Fan, White Fox)
鬼人召喚 (Summon Demons)
狛狛桜 (Komakoma Sakura)
妖絵巻 (Picture Scroll of Calamity)
退魔流星符 (Expel Demon Falling Star Charm)
反射符 (Reflection Charm)
 
 

-The “Great Battle of Sengoku” content is modeled after Star Craft’s “Aeon of Strife” custom map. You can cooperate with your friends, or you can hire AI to tag along with you on missions.
-There is a “Reputation” system being added alongside the Sengoku updates. There will be famous people from Japanese history from which you can get quests from under their family crests. After you’ve completed each of their quests, you can fight bosses to increase your ranking with Reputation. You can only gain rank by reward items given to you through these challenges.
-Character Decks and Part Time jobs will be released.

        Will come over for English classes?
        The Jms has three unique classes, English has only one.

      Really? I think Kanna’s skills are extremely cool looking.
      Hayato is a lot different than I thought it would be. I thought it would be more like a Hero, but it seems to be closer to a thief with a “warrior” tag on it.

  7. July 9, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    Damn
    Kanna looks awesome
    that snake skill!

  8. July 9, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Hm. Very interesting. I didn’t know Mages weren’t popular in JMS. I see quite a few in GMS. And no, mages aren’t great at bossing. Unless they’re an Evan.

    Interesting idea for a Warrior class though.

    Hayato: Soul Reaper
    Kanna: Shinobi

    • July 10, 2012 at 10:05 am

      GOD DAMN IT
      Those who say Soul Reaper are either retarded or can’t even read SHINIGAMI
      BITCH USE SHINIGAMI INSTEAD OF SOUL REAPER
      SOUL REAPER IS JUST TOOOOO MAINSTREAM

      • Sorairo

        Idjit. Shinigami means Death God, not Soul Reaper. Besides, Shinigami is more overrated than Soul Reaper due to things like Death Note.

        July 9, 2012 at 10:08 pm

        o.o There was never any guarantee that there would be more than two classes.

    Damnit, I want Hayato in GMS (even if it’s not gonna happen…). I’ve always wanted a Warrior class focussed on Speed like thaaaaaaaaat.

    It’s GMS you’re talking about.. we’re getting those classes. You watch. GMS are the copycat kings! Except it’ll be glitched and unstable to kingdom come but they’ll copy and paste like a MFer!

    Huh, so Hayato and Kanna are actually original characters. Bravo, Nexon Japan. You are best branch. The JMS classes definitely look pretty damn cool. I can’t wait for gameplay videos and skill tables.

    However, it sucks that they block foreign IPs. Because GMS is a piece of shit compared to JMS. All we got for exclusive content was a gimped corsair that broke all the other pirates and will be obsolete once pirates actually get revamped. Goddamnit. I wonder if there are any American JMS private servers. Because not getting to play as Hayato and Kanna feels bad, man.

    Three classes?o_O

    and GMS is the worst branch of Maple evar, its nothing but a bunch of fat lazy Americans and Canadians whom are over paid union workers, who under delivers their product. On top of that its has more hackers than any other version and its always getting code problems.

    GMS is cheap and crap, period. lol CMS is even worst since they are a bunch of commies running in that branch.
    JMS and Japanese code programmers FTW!!

      Actually, according to an interview from Game Watch, each version of MapleStory has a dedicated Korean team that works on each update. Read up on my latest blog post to see.

      You’re an idiot. Union membership is at an all time low, and a multinational like Nexon sure as hell wouldn’t use union workers for a scam like MapleStory.

      The problems with GMS are more likely caused by a lack of union membership. If the workers aren’t getting paid enough, don’t get good benefits and are ultimately unappreciated, why the fuck would they EVER deliver to us a quality product? It’s simply not worth their while. Not to mention that GMS is much more capitalistic than KMS and JMS, who have permanent cash shop items instead of expiring ones. They also have single pay health care and, in Japan’s case, seniority makes you a god amongst men in the corporate world. Suffice it to say, capitalism has not served GMS well. It’s all about farming cash rather than actually being concerned with what players want.

      And don’t even get me started on China, where they’re so capitalist the factories have to install suicide nets to stop workers from killing themselves due to such cruel and unusual working conditions. We used to do things like that, like how businesses used to lock doors to prevent workers from escaping or unionizing. This led to many a death from workers not being able to escape in the event of a fire.

      Suffice it to say, workers being treated well tends to result in a higher quality product. Unfortunately, American workers AREN’T treated well, and as a result neither are the American players of GMS. It ultimately comes down to caring about people. Our culture that no longer cares about such things is what’s corrupted and destroyed the once somewhat decent GMS. And that’s terrible.

      Also, EMS and SEA are worse than GMS by virtue of their regions being too smart or too poor, respectively, to waste money on this shit.
