Webzen – Japan subsidiary formed to operate new PC and mobile games

Earlier this week, Webzen announced it has formed a new subsidiary, Webzen Japan, to oversee the Japanese market. Starting from May, when contracts with Japanese partners for games such as MU Online and Soul of the Ultimate Nation end, Webzen Japan will be taking over all operations. Officially registered just last month, Webzen Japan currently has just 14 employees working in Sumida, Tokyo.

Wholly owned by Webzen Korea, the Japanese office will also start publishing mobile games in the highly-lucrative market, with revenues apparently growing by 30% annually since 2009. In related news, Webzen is preparing to launch its new PC MMORPG, MU Legend, in global markets this year. The sequel to MU Origin (mobile MMORPG) and SUN Mobile is also being developed in China.
