[NXJP] Dragona Signed for Publishing in Japan through Nexon Japan

Oh, how excellent, Nexon Japan and Dragona Online’s developer Liveplex has signed for the publishing of the game in Japan. I’m happy for Nexon Japan and all, but I’m starting to think that Nexon America is being left in the dust in terms of games being published. Nexon America has launched three games for 2010 and has at least one planned for early 2011 which isn’t bad, but when compared to Nexon Japan’s launching/taking over of TEN new games since the beginning of the year, it’s not good. Nexon Japan currently services 24 games and is catching up on Nexon Korea with services 29 games, with at least one upcoming. Well, Nexon Japan is dominating the Japanese online gaming market and I wish them and the rest of NEXON Corp. all the best in the future.

Dragona Online is a highly anticipated next-generation MMORPG developed by independent Korean studio Liveplex. The game has been in development since 2007 and will enter pre-open beta in Korea on January 20, 2011 where it is begin self-published by Liveplex.

Japan is the fourth country for Dragona Online to be published in after Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau which I believe will be published by the same company. The license for the game in America and Europe remains unsigned, will Nexon America/Nexon Europe volunteer? Liveplex is also looking for a publishing partner in China.

  1. woah … im not sure if nexon korea has a gameportal like blockparty , or even maple japan but im gonna say this :

    Nexon korea and Japan don’t have a gameportal and they have over 24 games, while we need a gameportal for only 6 games.. you know blockparty, besides the fact that we wil now comunicate with our friends and see how they leveld in other games (lol) and get our awsome website thrown in the trashcan … I think im not so happy with blockparty .. and i think NA feels the same cause they announced they would go with blockparty over 1 year ago

    • You don’t quite understand what a game portal is. A game portal is a website launched by a game publisher as a portal to all of that publisher’s game websites. Nexon America has had a game portal for years and so has Nexon Japan, Nexon Korea, Nexon Europe and the majority of game publishers out there. Nexon America’s current game portal is http://nexon.net, Nexon Korea’s game portal is http://nexon.co.kr and Nexon Japan’s game portal is http://www.nexon.co.jp and Nexon Europe’s http://nexoneu.com. It’s just that now Nexon America has decided to launch a new game portal, BlockParty, to replace the old one.

      And I don’t see any bad that can come from the launch of BlockParty. What Nexon America’s current portal is a boring little webpage with a list of games, some news, a banner rotator and some links to other sections of Nexon America’s website. BlockParty is not only a game portal but also a social network. If you don’t like the social network side of it then just use it as a game portal. Don’t worry, BlockParty is often. Just recently more clues came out. Nexon America seems to be changing some of their email addresses from ‘@nexon.net’ to ‘@blockparty.com’. When the MS site was reskinned for Big Bang a small BlockParty flag logo was placed in the topbar. This was removed because it probably wasn’t meant to be there. In the Nexon Celebrates MapleStory’s 1,000,000th Customer! event the details were on this page which contain many BlockParty images including the celebrating Blockhead, the BlockParty logo and the background.

    oooh i know what a game portal is, you explained me a while back .. but what i meant was … nexon america is updateing its gameprotal website while it only has 6 games .. and korea and japan keep their old one (?) with over 24 games .. so they keep the old ugly one while we change it and we only have 6 games …
