MapleStory 2 Supporters’ Day #03: Jobs!

Another video has been released for MapleStory 2, this time showcasing the jobs! I won’t be translating the whole video, it’s mainly just stuff you would already know if you had read each job’s teaser image, but the last two questions were interesting to me.
Q: Do you plan to add more jobs?
If we did add more jobs, they would not be like Hero classes. But for now, I believe we should focus more on balancing our current 8 jobs and making sure each of them have unique characteristics.
Q: Will there be PvP content?
Yes, there will be. Currently, the fighting is very ‘hack and slash’ but we hope to develop battle roles more in the future. There is going to be a variety of PvP conditions because we want to consider users who generally dislike PvP.
I think by ‘no Hero classes’, they mean they don’t want to add jobs that are a single character with a predetermined story.
Solo PvPTeam PvP
They showed off two different modes of PvP in the video actually, the first looks like 1v1 and the second looks like a team game. The minimap makes me think of MOBAs haha.
