The popularity of Evan
December 30, 2009 10 Comments
Nexon Korea announced that with the release of the new job Evan, Maple Story recorded 240,000 simultaneous users during the Christmas period.
The release of Evan received an explosive reaction from users who have waiting for the big update.
This means Evan did not break the record. Nexon Korea recorded 240,000 simultaneous users when Knights of Cygnus was released in December 2008 and one year later Evan has done the same.
The release of the Pirate job in 2007 had a total of 200,000 simultaneous users. The same for Aran.
Right now South Korean students have a very long winter break, which means they have more available time to play.
We’ll see how the next job will do. The future will tell.
I have some other news that might be worth telling you; MapleStory DS is coming very soon. It looks like Nexon Korea is planning to release MapleStory DS in January. It was originally planned to be released in September 2007, but the schedule was extended.
Maple DS does not support Wi-Fi.
The last thing I want to tell is that the new creation of Wizet Studio ”Kavatina Story” has decided to temporarily pull the plug.
Kavatina Story (MapleStory 3D) a game created by Wizet Studio has been in OBT (Open Beta) since July 2009.
I stopped playing this game because the team did not release big updates. This also caused other players to lose interest in the game.
On December 31st the service will end and you will not be able to play.
Kavatina Story will be back with a new look and updates once they finished development.
