Don’t count Nexon’s local Thai publishing partnership with AsiaSoft Thailand out! AsiaSoft has announced and opened a teaser website for the Thai service of Everplanet!
Check it out at http://everplanet.asiasoft.co.th/index.html.
Previously developed by NClipse and now developed by Nextoric, Everplanet is a casual cartoonish super fun MMO. It is very MapleStory-like with characters, skills, enemies and even a storyline similar to MapleStory’s, but in a 3D with an innovative camera system. Everplanet is the first game to use to “globe” camera system in which your character seems to be located on a planet and as you walk, the camera moves forward giving the effect of you walking around a spherical planet rather than a flat world as in other games. In other games when you walk along, distanced objects just seem to come into view from out of no where. In Everplanet distanced objects arise from below the horizon giving the world its spherical appearance.
Everplanet was placed at #3 in Msupdate’s Top 5 (4) Nexon Games That Should Be Brought To North America.
AsiaSoft Thailand is one of the biggest online game publishers in Thailand with games such as Dragon Nest, Aika Online, Atlantica Online, Cabal Online, Granado Espada, Ragnarok Online and, until the service closes on June 29, MapleStory.
Everplanet is currently published in Korea (Nexon) and Japan (Nexon).

South Korean gaming giant Nexon Corporation has announced their third (and likely final) take over of the year. Nexon has acquired EverPlanet developer Nclipse. This just a few months after Nexon’s unsuccessful attempt to acquire Dragon Nest develop EyeDentity Games, which was taken over by Chinese MapleStory publisher and massive Chinese game publisher Shanda Games. Nclipse is a South Korean gaming studio behind EverPlanet. EverPlanet is published in Korea and Japan by Nexon Corp. and made #3 on msupdate’s top 5 Nexon Games That Should Be Brought to North America, and as I said there:
I can see Nexon America taking Everplanet over here any time. There’s nothing stopping them that I know of. Everplanet will be a sure success for the more casual gamers and may even attract some MapleStory players who want a change.
With this acquisition, Nexon secured the excellent development skill of Nclipse and Nclipse is looking forward to servicing in the global market.
“We are pleased to be a family with Nclipse who has been in good relationship as a developer and a publisher. We will provide better environment for the developers to focus on their job and will guarantee the opportunity to reinforce their value in Nexon,” said Min Seo the CEO of Nexon.
