MapleStory is a 2D massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) and has eight different versions respective to various geographical locations (China, Europe, Global, Japan, South East Asia, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand). The Korean version is the original and generally receives new updates before the other versions. A Nexon ID is used to play MapleStory and all of Nexon's other games. To play Korean MapleStory, you must have a Korean Social Security number. If you do not have one, you cannot play. The Korean MapleStory website also requires the use of Internet Explorer.
