Nexon's MapleStory Reaches 92 Million Global Users

May 7, 2009 | By Leigh Alexander

Nexon's MapleStory will celebrate its fourth anniversary in the U.S. on May 11 -- the service has been running for six years globally -- and Nexon America has announced that the game is up to 92 million users worldwide, six million of those in North America.

MapleStory is a free-to-play 2D MMO by South Korean developer Wizet, published in North America, Japan, Korea and some Asian territories by Nexon, by Shanda in China, and by other publishers in regions including Brazil and Vietnam.

Nexon America also touts the game's thriving community, noting that over 200,000 fan-made MapleStory videos are available on YouTube.

"After four years of service in North America, MapleStory continues to evolve and surprise us all. We are very grateful to our loyal fans and this celebration is for them," says Nexon America marketing VP Min Kim. "MapleStory fans have helped create something special, and were going to reward them with new, exciting content to enjoy throughout the summer and beyond."
