A breaking news about Maplestory is announced these days by the hame official site. Are you still launching the MapleStory client by double-clicking the GameLauncher.exe file within your MapleStory game folder? This ability will be discontinued until Thursday, March 23. The older systems including direct launch will be eliminated soon. Instead, players will need to use Nexon Launcher to download and update MapleStory.


As the developers explain, Nexon Launcher is a unified central location for accessing all of Nexon's games. It automatically keeps your game client up-to-date by updating in the background, even if you're playing MapleStory or another Nexon game.



Click here to download Nexon Launcher. A step-by-step guide to the import process we have posted below.


  1. Once you have Nexon Launcher, just login with your Nexon account. 
  2. A prompt will appear asking you to import your existing MapleStory installation into your Nexon Launcher game library. Click 'OK'. 
  3. Navigate to the MapleStory game page in Nexon Launcher. 
  4. Click the 'Play' button. Nexon Launcher will verify the files to determine what version you are on. 
  5. If needed, files will be downloaded to patch to the latest version.
  6. Once patching and verifying is done, select click ‘Play’ to start the game.


Using this new feature, you can not only update your game, but also can get an added incentive. If you logged in to MapleStory using direct launch any time between 12:00 AM PST on January 1, 2016 and 12:00 AM PST on February 13, 2017, you can receive the following rewards if you log in to MapleStory using Nexon Launcher between 12:00 AM PST on February 13, 2017 and 12:00 AM PDT on April 7, 2017:
