Fans of Nexon‘s MapleStory will be thrilled to hear that the annual MapleStory Fest event is being planned for November 13th as an all-digital event. This marks the fourth year that Maplers have gathered together virtually from around the world. The event will be broadcast via the MS Twitch channel or via the MS YouTube channel starting at 1:00 pm Pacific / 4:00 pm Eastern on November 13th. All who attend the virtual fest will receive special in-game rewards in both MapleStory and MapleStory M.
Developers have a number of fun events for fans as well as announcements about the game. Fans will also have access to attend watch parties and other social events that will be revealed during the broadcast.
Some of the activities Maplers can participate in include:
- FashionStory Contest – Take a screenshot of your in-game character to show off to the community and to win prizes. Following this, Nexon will create a shortlist of the best entries, and Maplers and fans will judge them afterward as they vote for the most fashionable character during the event.
- Low Budget Cosplay Challenge – Make your most creative costume from MapleStory and MapleStory M with a limited budget of $50! Selected cosplays will be voted on by fans during the event.
- Fan Art Showcase – We love fan art! Send your artwork and Nexon America will showcase the final winners to the fans during the event.
