During their media event “Nexon Special Day” we got a look at Nexon’s 2019 launch roadmap, mostly for the first half of this year. It also mostly focuses on mobile games. When they were asked about PC games they said that they would talk more about it in their second or third special day events later this year. So basically, if you’re hoping to see Peria Chronicles you’ll have to wait until later this year at the very least.
Magia: Charma Saga
A side-scrolling action RPG that has already soft launched in five countries. It appears that Nexon has hopes this game will become a new standalone hit IP for the company. If you’re interested in checking it out our friends at MMOCulture have a 50-minute long preview of gameplay from the soft launch. Currently, the game is available to play in the Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, Singapore, and New Zealand. The inclusion of two English speaking countries gives us high hopes that this game will release in the West.
Durango: Wild Lands
Its been a while since we’ve heard about Durango: Wild Lands, but it looks as though they’re preparing to release the game in the west in the first half of this year.
Details so far are very vague for Overhit, but we do know that Nexon is planning to release it in 150 countries simultaneously. It’s the eagerly anticipated mobile RPG from NAT Games, the makers of HIT.
MapleStory M is finally going to be released in Japan this April.
Godzilla Defense Force
Perhaps, the most exciting thing to come from the special media day was the announcement of Godzilla Defense Force, a game in which players need to defend cities against more than 100 different monsters from the Godzilla series. The game will be launching worldwide this May and be available in 10 different languages.
It looks like Nexon has a busy few months ahead, especially when you remember that 98% of the company is going up for sale very soon. If you’re interested in reading more about that check out the latest MMO Money column to see which 5 groups will be allowed to place bids.
