Every year, South Korea’s Ministry of Culture, which is the government board which regulates gaming laws in South Korea, will nominate one game to win its prestigious Republic of Korea Game Awards (Presidential Award). Given the strict nature of this government board, winning this prize is no doubt a tall mountain to climb. This year, the winner was just announced: Nexon’s Mabinogi Heroes, also known as Vindictus in North America. Nexon also won a cool 10 million Korean Won prize for the achievement! The results are based on votes by netizens, game journalists and many more industry veterans. Congratulations to Mabinogi Heroes! For the game’s latest G*Star trailer, click here.
Nexon is no doubt the biggest winner on the awards night, with Maple Story DS and Mabinogi winning a total of 7 prizes and bagging an additional 9 million Korean Won!
