WHAT:           Back in November 2013, two warriors rose to fight against a Demon King, thereby ushering the start of the Sengoku era in MapleSEA. The two warriors were Hayato, a samurai warrior and Kanna, a magician who chose a fan as her weapon and has a white fox, Haku, as her battle companion.  

While they fought their battles valiantly, they could not unleash their full potential with their current skills. However, the content update launched today will be a turning point for these two classes as Hyper Skills will be introduced, powering them up for the treacherous battles they would face against the Demon King and their fight to restore peace in Sengoku.  More information on their newly acquired Hyper Skills can be found on

As Hayato and Kanna raced off to save Japan, another class is also making its return to MapleSEA as well. ZEN, the pirate based class who set out to avenge his father, will usher the Chinese New Year with players in MapleSEA on 5th February 2014. After a short hiatus to regain his strength, ZEN is ready once again to embark on his arduous journey for justice.  Please visit to find out how ZEN has grown during his short hiatus from MapleSEA.

To welcome the launch of Hyper Skills for Sengoku warriors and the return of ZEN, players can participate in the Hyper Giveaway Draw where they stand to stand to win a pair of tickets to Japan. Joining the draw is simple as players will only need to login to MapleSEA and they will be entered into the draw automatically. For fans who have yet to create their ZEN characters, this will be the best time to start as they can increase their chances of winning by creating a ZEN class between 5 th February 2014 and 13 th February 2014.

There will also be other activities coming up to mark this occasion, so keep a lookout on for more details or visit MapleSEA's Facebook Fan Page at to gather like-minded brave souls for the battle against evil!
