LOS ANGELES – September 29, 2021 – MapleStory, the popular free-to-play global MMORPG from Nexon, will launch its latest update on October 6 and finds the adorable, vegetable-hating BUGCAT CAPOO and his animal friends wandering into the mysterious Maple World. This limited-time event offers players opportunities to earn prize rewards, purchase special items, and earn extra buffs for their time spent with BUGCAT CAPOO.
This six-legged little creature needs special help on his trip through Maple World. It’s time for players to put their tour guide hats on and accompany BUGCAT CAPOO around Maple World—earning them unique prizes and the ability to purchase special items along the way. Even better, BUGCAT CAPOO also bestows stronger buffs to players as they complete daily quests and earn his affection. In order to embark on this adventure, players must accept this quest from Cassandra, which can be found via the Star Event Notifier. Throughout this event, players can also gain a collection of rewards such as adorable emoticons, a limited edition effect, and a special medal.
Continue the adventure in MapleStory‘s official Forums and Discord server from October 8 – 22 to participate in a screenshot comic strip contest. While acting as BUGCAT CAPOO’s guide and protector in Maple World, players are challenged to artistically commemorate their time spent together with their best screenshots. Full contest rules can be found at Discord and the Forums.
The vibrant world of BUGCAT CAPOO (the always hungry, blue bug-cat hybrid), DOGDOG, and their owner LALA, was first created in May 2014 by illustrator Yara. Both aggressive and cute in equal measure, BUGCAT CAPOO quickly gained popularity in the comics community. Today, the character is a global sensation across social and content platforms, delighting readers all over the world through humor and a simple art style.
