MapleStory M is Nexon's latest attempt to bring the MapleStory MMORPG to Android. They had tried previously in 2015 with the release of Pocket MapleStory, but fans of the PC version were none too happy with the changes made to the game and its god-awful controls. It has since been removed, but that doesn't mean Nexon has given up on bringing the franchise to mobile. In October of 2016 MapleStory M was released in Korea, but there was no word about an English release. Well, it looks like we now know for sure that an English version is coming stateside because a public beta is up on the Play Store right now.


Now, one thing you will want to keep in mind is that the current English listing of MapleStory M will only be available on the Play Store until January 30th. The official release is planned for sometime later this year. So if you want to  MapleStory M Mesos jump into the MMORPG gameplay, you should do so post haste, as the clock is counting down. It's also worth pointing out that the game's servers will be wiped after this beta is over, so any progress you make in the game will be lost when it is officially released. Luckily any in-app purchases that will undoubtedly be in the final release are not active for this beta, so there's no way to lose any money while testing the title out.
