Last week, MapleStory Mobile (or MapleStory M) was officially announced prior to G-Star 2015 at Nexon’s media conference. Recently, the development team revealed to the press that MapleStory Mobile is 80% completed, and is scheduled to launch in South Korea within the 1st quarter of 2016. Compared to Pocket MapleStory, MapleStory Mobile is more focused on party play.
Other than guilds, the main party play component is a feature known as Expedition, where large-scale boss battles are carried out. According to several attendees and the press who tried MapleStory Mobile at G-Star 2015, the game is more true to the PC version of MapleStory than Pocket MapleStory is. It was claimed the graphics from the PC version were carried over directly without any degrading.
