Nexon continues mobile social push with new acquisition
Nexon continues mobile social push with new acquisition
June 28, 2012 | By Eric Caoili




Newsbrief: Pushing more into the mobile social space, Korean free-to-play MMO company Nexon will acquire inBlue, a Japanese developer that specializes in titles for mobile social game networks Gree and Mobage. Terms for the deal were not disclosed.

Nexon is already developing iOS and Android titles internally, but it's recently made investments in mobile social developers like Korean firms Moyasoft and JC Entertainment Corporation -- the latter released Rule the Sky, currently the top-grossing game in Korea's App Store.

Founded in 2010 and based in Japan, inBlue is best known for creating Sengoku Pockets for the Gree platform. With the growing popularity of services like Gree and DeNA's Mobage -- and their expansions to the West -- a number of Korean MMO devs (e.g. WeMade) have made acquisitions and investments in the mobile social space game during the last year.
