Hey people, $5 is a lot of dough when it comes to the App Store. Especially when Nexon Mobile's MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition for iOS devices features micro-transactions, too. At any rate, the next edition of the Korean MMO (massively multiplayer online game) developer's flagship franchises come hot off the heels of its Facebook game, MapleStory Adventures.

MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition puts players into the cute little shoes of either the Soul Master, a melee fighter with shiny armor, or the Flame Wizard, a wizard with ... flames. Your job is to guide these two warriors through level after lovely level of bashing baddies, learning new flashy abilities and finding rare loot. Judging from images of the game, it looks like fans of the original MapleStory will feel right at home.

The game also features several mini games as well as (briefly) social features like the Mailbox and Ad Board systems, which allows you to exchange messages with in-game friends, post notes to other players in real time.

Speaking of real time, Nexon also plans to add real-time multiplayer to the mini games in MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition, complete with Facebook and Twitter integration. (And did we mention that we could eat those cheeky little warriors up?)

The game is available now in the Apple App Store for the premium price of $5, which might be a bit of a barrier to entry considering it also includes micro-transactions for Candies, the game's primary currency. At any rate, if you're a fan of the MapleStory franchise--which is only getting bigger every day--you kind of owe to yourself, no?
