Nexon to bring Maple Story, Dungeon & Fighters and five other games to mobile by the end of 2016

Korean publisher Nexon has revealed plans to roll out seven mobile games based on its existing PC IPs by the end of 2016.

Mobile editions of MMO Maple Story and multiplayer fighter Dungeon & Fighters are among the titles announced. It will also publish a mobile version of Elsword Slash.

Nexon will also be publishing quiz game Quiz Quiz, developed by Monster Planet, and strategy sim Marching Legions from Cocoon Games.

Dungeon & Fighters appears to be the main focus of Nexon's efforts. The game will receive a 3D version to target Korean audiences, alongside a 2D edition to target China.

The latter will be published through Chinese publisher Tencent.

Making the leap

"As we endured the difficulties this summer, we have ruminated over our vocation as a game developer," said Nexon Korea Vice President Chung Sang-won.

"We are pushing to introduce popular game IPs for our new mobile games, adding creative, entertaining ideas to them. We will strive to make the games better."

Nexon has also claimed to have been investigating virtual reality and augmented reality, but currently has no plans to implement either technology in its games.

The company has seen revenue losses across the globe except in its home country of South Korea. In its Q2 financials, Nexon said it would look to push further into Japan with its future titles.
