Now this is an interesting development. Nexon announced today that they have entered into an agreement with Kodansha Ltd. to develop and publish games based on the Ghost in the Shell series.

The agreement gives Nexon the rights to create a series of games based around several of the Ghost in the Shell series including Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX, Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C 2nd GIG and Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society Series.

No other details are available at this time.

    nexon is a, excuse this b*tch cause they can’t really do anything without the approval over the bigger company in asia, and by the time it takes them to get an approval, it takes even more time to carry it out.

    ewww why let nexon have this project nexon na is sooo bad of a team 🙁

  3. hovsep56 on December 18, 2012

    nexon isnt so bad not sure if its different but im from europe nexon and they mostly give events that give out cash items on all games like the kitty coupons at vindictus that were now having hat gives us cash items and permanent costumes

    transhumanists ftw.

  5. NekyBrawler on December 16, 2012

    R.I.P. Ghost in the Shell<3

  6. Canti- on December 16, 2012

    hmm might as well wait and see how nexon plans it out

  7. Ernie on December 16, 2012

    seriously? Nexon isn’t bad at all, all you guys are acting like they mess up games all the time.
    If someone gave me any evidence of Nexon being bad that’d be great.

    • NekyBrawler on December 16, 2012

      LMAO, go post this on the forums or look through all the forum threads and you’ll find a gigantic size of the population has a problem with Nexon. They screw up patches constantly, they sit on content that’s ready to implement until certain cash item sales go down, all kinds of things. Guess you don’t check the forums much or keep up with maintenances or anything like that

      • Sephreon on December 17, 2012

        damn its only Nexon NA that sucks it’s obvious it will be in Korea and if Ghost in the Shell is popular there it’ll do good

      • Ernie on December 17, 2012

        Sorry internet Guru but they aren’t wizards, i’ve seen WAY worse. They screw up patches sometimes yeah, but is it really that big a deal when you get a great game? They sit on content because it’s a smart money making move, remember this ain’t a charity. If they released it all at once everyone would just like it alot for a bit and then get bored.

  8. Namelessguy on December 16, 2012

    No! NO! NOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    WHY? Ç__Ç

    Why must such an awesome history have a game made by Nexon? Why Nexon? This is a sad day.

  9. ashxu on December 15, 2012

    Well I can hope they at least make the game mature.

  10. ren the rose on December 15, 2012

    hell yaa i love the anime i cant wait for the game yaaa

  11. mr jodedor on December 15, 2012

    nexon…nah is racist

  12. ReXoR on December 15, 2012

    I cant w8 … finally an anime mmorpg .

  13. montiblanc on December 15, 2012

    title should read

    “Ghost in The Shell to be Shitted on by Nexon”

  14. Vashuja on December 14, 2012

    hmmm the ghost in the shell series is famous for its characters and the coplex philosophical dialogs which include topics like the origin of human mind, the Cartesian dualism and things like Simulacrum ( especially in the stand alone coplex ). I think, the best way to make a game out of it, is to make an adventure.

  15. DeFiiNeZ on December 14, 2012

    Even tho this is nexon making the game….sigh…..im still quite interested to see how these games turn out.

    • NekyBrawler on December 16, 2012

      Cash shop reliance and belated content updates. That’s how it will turn out.

      • Ernie on December 17, 2012

        There’s not a single game that nexon gives that relies on the Cash Shop.

  16. EvilRukia on December 14, 2012

    why….why…..why….I was shocked at first when I read “Ghost in the Shell Games to be Developed ” and then I saw IT! Why does nexon have to mess everything up? I absolutely hate that company…such greedy bastards!! I guess I can either hope something goes wrong and they fail to launch the games indefinitely or no one plays it due to ?????? and it is sold to someone else to run things… The best and insane idea being Nexon actually does things right and doesn’t turn it into a cash hog…

    • Tomo on December 15, 2012

      just like LJN in the nintendo age (yes i have watched AVGN)

    • Ernie on December 16, 2012

      right, cause Nexon is the only company that asks for cash, ALL THEIR GAMES ARE F2P with a cash shop. How do you expect a company as big as Nexon to survive without actually earning anything. All their games aren’t pay to win, and most of them are great.

      • EvilRukia on December 17, 2012

        some of their games are pay to win and most of their cash shops are just rent to use..

        • Ernie on December 17, 2012

          Maybe Combat arms and sudden attack but all shooting mmos do that. Most MMOs make the cash shop rent to use anyways, ganging up on Nexon is a little dumb when GPotato and other companies just like it do the same.

  17. Frostelf on December 14, 2012

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NEXON Y U RUIN GAMES

  18. Murilo on December 14, 2012

    great, another game that 90% of the world will never be able to play… tks nexon

  19. NexonFan on December 14, 2012

    Looks so cool.. I wish it’s an action open world PvEPvP mmorpg and that you can create your own PC and also not gender locked….

  20. Septhyr on December 14, 2012

    Dam you nexon! D:

  21. Kawaiido on December 14, 2012

    Talk about gold wrapped in shit. =/

  22. Wartortle on December 14, 2012

    Whhhhhhhhhaat, GitS is my favorite show..lets hope they don’t butcher the hell out of this.

  23. Sir Jaxxy on December 14, 2012

    Well it could have been worse. Though, not much. They could have given the license to Aeria Games.

    Sir Jaxxy

    • Sir Jaxxy on December 14, 2012

      hmm must have used the wrong e-mail cause my gravatar isn’t showing LOL

  24. Combat Starfish on December 14, 2012

    well they do good with anime style games…i hope they dont ruin Ghost in the Shell

  25. jdrew2000 on December 14, 2012

    I have watched the show a few times but done get, I like the main idea of it though.

  26. zoren on December 14, 2012

    anime was great but nexon handling ghost in the shell? not so awesome

    • xcr00k3dx on December 14, 2012

      This was my exact first thought. 🙁
      I hope Nexon doesn’t sully Ghost In The Shell’s legacy..

      • Ernie on December 16, 2012

        First of all, Ghost in the shell didn’t have such a great legacy. Secondly, Nexon is a great company that everyone hates because they have a cash shop, like all F2P games out there, if people didn’t jump in the band wagon of hate so much everyone would like them more.

        • ANDREW123123 on December 16, 2012

          no, nexon sucks.

          • Derek1117 on December 16, 2012

            So nexon and you’re mom have something in common!

          • Derek1117 on December 16, 2012

            Your*

        • Jester on December 17, 2012

          People don’t hate nexon cause of their cash shop. We actually love that. ITs their terrible customer service, their terrible workers, terrible GM’s. Basically their a terrible company. The japanese Nexon is great. Thy American company is completely trash. They may be nice people but they dont know shit.

          I’ve tried to deal with nexons shit for years upon years. There is just no end of the disappointment they give out.

          • Ernie on December 17, 2012

            i’ve never had to deal with customer service so maybe that’s why i like them but i honestly can’t hate them, i like Mabinogi and other great games that nexon gives us.

  27. mitchell collins on December 14, 2012
