Following the unprecedented success of MapleStory Europe’s recent French
Revolution event, in which players fought a demonic Bastille wall to win a
magical tricolour hat, NEXON Europe is stepping up its schedule of special
events, with yet more culturally-themed promotions throughout August and
Planned festivities will kick off with an event based on Spain’s famed La
Tomatina celebration. The event, which is set to take place for two weeks
from August 16th, will pay homage to the manic and world-famous
tomato-fight that occurs every year in the Spanish town of Buņol, Valencia.
In MapleStory Europe’s La Tomatina event, players will, among other tasks,
have to band together to save themselves from the fearsome onslaught of a
powerful tomato-shaped monster!
All players need to do to take part is speak to the relevant in-game NPC to
start the event. Details on where and when these characters can be found,
along with other surprise events, will be revealed on the MapleStory Europe
homepage, www.mapleeurope.com, over the coming weeks. Further MapleStory
Europe-specific events currently planned include exciting takes on both
Germany’s traditional Oktoberfest beer festival and the British celebration
of Guy Fawkes Day.

MapleStory Europe’s French Revolution event and are extremely excited to be
organising more European-focused in-game events,? said Calvin Yoo, Director
of International Business Development at NEXON Europe. ?We’re committed to
keeping the MapleStory Europe experience fresh and exciting for all our
players and we look forward to revealing many more such promotions in the
