Exciting Review of 10 Year Timeline, Nearly 10,000 Players Celebrate in Unison
Maple Story has officially entered the peak of its 10th anniversary celebrations this summer. In addition to the exclusive Taiwan dungeon, Mirage Forest, the Maple Story X 10th Anniversary Exhibition was held at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park Warehouse 3 from July 25th to 26th, combining virtual elements with reality for the first time ever. X is the roman numeral for 10, which also represents infinity, goal, hope, and perfection. This is the reason that the physical exhibition event was named Maple Story X, in anticipation that Maple Story will continue to bring players even more perfect entertainment as its goal. Not only was there a 10 Year Timeline wall which conveyed events and important game statistics over the past ten years, historical updates were compiled on a wall of posters including popular updates such as Royal Knights, Phantom, Dark Paradise and more. Many game settings such as Taiwan’s exclusive Alishan, Balrog Altar, Royal Beast Academy, Toy City were presented as well as over 50 character and class cardboard figures including Son of God, Flame Wizard, Mercedes, etc. Almost a thousand mushrooms were used to create a cute garden and a nearly 2.4m tall Crystal Garden was constructed in real life, bringing back many game memories for players and inspiring many photos opportunities and exclamations from players who visited the exhibition.
