Newsbrief: Seoul-based Nexon will increase its stake in JC Entertainment and become its largest shareholder, as its looks to transform the Korean developer into a global company.

The MapleStory publisher will increase its stake in JCE to 22.34 percent -- last October, it purchased a 16.34 percent stake for $54 million. Nexon says it can expand the reach of JCE's games with its "business strengths, live service, and experience with platforms around the world."
