What is MapleStorySEA?

MapleStorySEA consists of a colourful, whimsical world where players can create their own characters such as a brave warrior, a powerful magician, or even a sneaky thief. Much like most online role-playing games, there are quests and missions to complete such as battling monsters known as MapleStory Bosses.

But it’s not all serious business; if you ever need a break from saving the world, you can always relax by fishing in a tranquil pond or customising your character’s outfit with all sorts of wacky accessories.

It is in this new world that they also recruit other members – a magician named Megumin and a crusader named Darkness. Together, the 4 form a party and try to battle the Devil King and his generals.
