Sept. 3, 2008—NDOORS, the company behind Atlantica Online, has signed a publishing agreement with Nexon Japan that will bring the strategic turn-based MMORPG to Japanese online gamers.
Nexon Japan is one of the leading game publishers in Japan. The company operates a game portal that provides online games to 3.9 million registered users in 60 countries throughout Asia, North America and Europe.
“We are fortunate and thrilled that Atlantica’s unique action and fun can be shared and enjoyed by many players throughout the world,” said Cho Sung Won, NDOORS, CEO.“NDOORS will make a great effort to attract Japanese players to the world of Atlantica through a close and cooperative relationship with Nexon Japan.”
In Atlantica, players must travel the world to find the clues that will lead them to the legendary lost civilization of Atlantis. They will stop in locales like Japan, Egypt, Romania and the United States to battle monsters taken from myth and folklore. It began in Korea, with Atlantica’s commercial launch in January 2008. Then in April, NDOORS’ plans to make the game global made its first step through an agreement with The9, the largest game publisher in China. Through NDOORS Interactive, NDOORS’ U.S.-based subsidiary, Atlantica was introduced to North and South American players, as well as Europeans, in July 2008. The deal with Nexon Japan now makes Atlantica accessible in most major markets.
Atlantica is another success in the game-developing career of Kim Tae Gon, Atlantica’s producer. Kim is the developer behind successful games like Seven Years War, Gersang and Luminary: Rise of the Goonzu.
“The expectations were high for Atlantica, and Kim delivered by creating a game with unique and dynamic action, realized through its turn-based system— a concept that has often been overlooked in the gaming industry,” said Cho.“Now, Atlantica has more than one million players throughout the world enjoying its exciting gameplay.”
