I’m so super sad to report that Ignited Games has announced the temporary closure of WonderKing, the 2D side-scrolling MMORPG.
WonderKing is a moderately successful 2D side-scrolling MMORPG that is, in some ways, similar to MapleStory. I had some really great times playing WonderKing through its North American servers but a lot has been going on with WonderKing all around the world recently including a huge legal dispute between the developer and publisher, a massive hacking outbreak, lack of game updates and a shrinking playerbase. Recently, the community has been really concerned that a closure of WonderKing worldwide was approaching, but this was settled by the North American team who said that the North American service does not plan to closing any time soon. Sadly, the European service of the game does not have such plans. WonderKing Europe publisher Bigpoint has announced that the game will close on July 31, 2011, ending the European service.
Goodbye WonderKing Europe. WonderKing Europe players are free to join the Europe MapleStory community :).
It seems that Nexon’s restructuring of subsidiary Ndoors Interactive continues as the North American service of 2D side-scrolling MMORPG WonderKing is transferring publishers just as Atlantica Online did in March. What’s different though is that WonderKing is not transferring to Nexon America as Atlantica did, but to new publisher Ignited Games. I’m starting to think that Nexon’s aim is to eventually close Ndoors Interactive. Visit the WonderKing website for more information.
