Free-to-play online publisher Nexon America (Maplestory, Dungeon Fighter Online) revealed that its revenues grew 26 percent for the second quarter of 2010 ended in June.

While Nexon America, which is the Stateside arm of South Korean developer and publisher Nexon Corp., hasn't yet provided exact revenue and profit numbers for Q2 2010, it noted that in June alone, its revenues were 36 percent higher compared to the same period last year.

This announcement continues a trend of increasing revenues for the North American division -- last May, the firm said it had a 31 percent increase in revenues to $45.5 million for 2009, up from the $34.3 million it generated the previous year.

Nexon America's free-to-play titles include MapleStory, which claims more than 7 million registered users in the region; Combat Arms, which has over 4 milion registered users; and Mabinogi with 1 million users. It also recently launched Dungeon Fighter Online in the U.S., and will begin a closed beta for Vindictus next month.

"Our player base and revenues continue to expand, which tells us that gamers find that our free-to-play business model fits their play needs," said Nexon America's CEO Daniel Kim, according to a report from Games Beat.
