MapleStory is one of Nexon’s largest free-to-play games, and has been for quite some time now. The side-scrolling RPG is equal parts adorable and addicting, creating a single product that is quite tantalizing for anyone looking for a solid F2P MMO. The game has been around for quite some time, however it’s only been as of late that it’s branched out of its original medium. That’s where animator Brain Schmoyer’s MapleStory: New Leaf Saga enters; Leaf Saga is something of an animated adaptation of the game that tells the cyber adventures of four friends, using charming yet snarky humor to help players understand the gameplay mechanics presented in the game itself. So whether it’s choosing the right class or dealing with a buddy who backs out of a dungeon at the last minute, New Leaf Saga is a wonderful companion series that brings to life the MapleStory world and all it encompasses.
The first season of New Leaf Saga is now available in its entirety on Crunchyroll. Additionally, the follow-up season is currently in production and will be available on Crunchyroll later this summer.
