With the Retro World Event, starting March 6 to April 9 , characters level 61 and above will be able to join various events that take them to unique, 8-bit pixelated worlds where they can hunt monsters, collect coins, practice their dodging and jumping, avoid traps and more.

Retro World event starting on March 6 includes:

  • Promote the Game!: Players will be able to hunt monsters near their level to retrieve Retro World Promo Coupons and receive coins for a special reward.
  • Eliminate Bug Monsters!: Retro World monsters will begin to appear in Maple World. Players who eliminate the monsters can acquire EXP, mesos and coins.
  • Call of the Goddess: Maplers can learn a special event skill from the ancient Retro World Goddess. As they use this skill, players will be able to earn additional coins after eliminating monsters.

Additionally, players will engage in two fun mini-games to provide crucial training for the challenges that await. Retro World also brings forth the Demon King’s Tower dungeon, which is comprised of 4 stages that players must complete before defeating the Demon King boss.

MapleStory also invites players to strap on their best detective hats and trench coats in the Detective Rave’s Case Notes theme dungeon where characters level 175 or higher can embark on an adventurous journey with master investigator Detective Rave. Players will be tasked with uncovering the villainous plot in the lawless city of Savage Terminal as they defeat new monsters. Players who complete the dungeon will receive Detective Rave’s Honorary Assistant medal.
