So why exactly aren't we getting Maplestory?

Looks like an awesome game, and it's really interesting that it's a Korean game developer making it. Why exactly isn't that game going outside of Korea? Even Japan isn't getting it. What's wrong with opening the market worldwide?

Maplestory for the 3DS?
Would it really be as fun as the PC Maplestory?
I don't see how they'll do all those servers,cash shop items,online ,etc.

It's a pretty s***ty game if you've ever played good games before.

Because MS went to s*** after the Big Bang patch.

It's still kind of fun, but holy crap, I have never played a more fun MMO than MS back in the first 2-3 years of its lifespan.

Oh wow, there's a PC version? I didn't know about that. I'll have to give that a look, then.

Uh, that game has been around longer than you seem to think. It's an MMO-style kind of game, with online transactions and such, so a 3DS version wouldn't be very good, most likely.

I really used to like Maplestory. I tried playing it again a few months ago and just couldn't get back into it. It bored me and I was surprised I spent so much time on it. Guess I should have left it in my memories.

Yeah I was kind of wondering why we'd want an out of date MMO on the 3DS. Grind, grind, pay to win, repeat.
