Nexon Picks Up Mobile Developer And Also Announces Marvel Card Game
While we generally don't report on mobile news, the fact that Nexon's involved in a pair of notable moves that grabbed our attention.
First, MMOCulture is reporting that Nexon has acquired a 48.3% share of Nat Games, makers of HIT (Heroes of Incredible Tales) and its upcoming sequel Overhit. The first game is an "Unreal Engine 4 Powered Action RPG" created by the "TERA and Lineage II Lead Designer," as described in this press release.
In other news, Nexon has also announced Marvel Battle Lines, a mobile CCG that uses heroes and villains from the Marvel comics universe. It will feature a single-player PvE storyline written by Marvel writer Alex Irvine, as well as what the press release describes as "real-time turn-based" PvP. I'm not quite sure how those two fit together -- it would seem like you have to be one or the other -- but there it is.
