In case you are wondering, “won” is the official currency of South Korea. And yes, according to foreign reports, Nexon just became the first gaming company in Korea to hit the once-mythical 1 trillion won mark in total sales. This feat was achieved last year, in 2010. So how was this achieved? If you have read, Nexon actually bought over several game developers, with their sales becoming part of Nexon’s as well. Do note that Wizet and devCAT , the development units for MapleStory (which celebrates its 8th anniversary this year) and the Mabinogi games respectively, should be included in the Nexon Korea HQ sales figure. Here is a break down.
Once again, note that sales for Nexon North America, Nexon Europe and publishing rights in other regions are not accounted for, hence the total sales for 2010 is estimated to have break the 1 trillion Korean won mark. Neople itself was bought over by Nexon in 2008 if you are curious. Will 2011 be even better for the mega corporation? Well, I am more interested when will they be announcing Mabinogi 2 and MapleStory 2!
