[NX] Nexon Invests In Social Game Developer 6waves Lolapps

Just a week after it was launched, Nexon’s first take at the Facebook platform, MapleStory Adventures, has hit 646,388 monthly active users, making it the fastest growing Korean social game ever.

Less than fix months after Nexon invested in Facebook-based Lucky Train developer A Bit Lucky, the company has invested in the recently merged 6waves Lolapps. Now together, 6waves and Lolapps make the second largest Facebook gaming company by total monthly active users, behind only Zynga (over 35 million MAU). Driven by Nexon’s investment, 6waves Lolapps is looking to challenge social gaming giants Zynga and Electronic Arts.

“We are thrilled to be teaming up with 6waves Lolapps in such a significant way,” said Seung-woo Choi, CEO of Nexon in Seoul. “By joining forces, we are combining 6waves Lolapps’ experience in publishing and developing social games with our extensive knowledge of free-to-play games and the microtransaction business model.”

Now, Nexon, start working on expanding your desktop platform portfolio now. Thanks. But keep up the good work in social gaming too. Do both. And consoles. All three please.

  1. whats s good about maplestory adventurers .. It’s a shitty version fo maplekstory, ON FACEBOOK o_0 Why play that when you could enjoy the same game, but better. I mean it’s notlike they made it for a system that wouldn’t play the original maplestory. I mean, if they made it for the DS, or a mobile phone I would understand, but on the PC/Laptop you can just play the normal version. PLus the game sucks .. only 2 jobs, warrior and mage. WHy did they even invest time in it… Yeah I know to lure in people that never heard of maplestory on facebook… but I don’t understand why so many people play a shitty version of the game when they could play Maplestory at the same time !
