Take the Train, Enjoy Cherry Blossoms, Watch the Sunrise, Head to the New Alishan Map for Colorful Adventures
As Maple Story approaches its 10th anniversary in Taiwan, the number 1 scenic spot chosen in 2009’s Taiwan update map became a reality. The player receives an unknown summon in the Maple Story world and ends up being teleported to a small village in Alishan, Leshan Village. Simple villager Xiaoming informs the player that he or she needs the assistance of razor-tongued 17th generation shrine maiden Xiao Jing if he or she wishes to return to the original world. The shrine maiden explains that Leshan Village’s prosperity stems from Alishan’s wealth of natural resources and energy of the land which keeps the village self-sufficient. An ancient spirit, Xiao Xiao, is responsible for maintaining Alishan’s balance.
However, a few months ago strange phenomena began appearing on Alishan, where the forest and trees began to wilt and beasts turned exceptionally aggressive. This made it impossible for villagers to leave the village. This was the reason that shrine maiden Xiao Jing hopes the player can help determine the cause of the problem. She promises to help the player return to the Maple Story world in order to express her gratitude. Once the player successfully passes the test which Xiao Jing has arranged, you board the train and head towards the top to the mountain to confirm the real cause. However, the journey becomes one of life and death as an evil sorcerer takes control of the train. The player must utilize wisdom and skill in order to find the issue and save ancient spirit Xiao Xiao.
