Nzin Corporation – Daum Games and Nzin merger completed by Kakao

First announced last December, Kakao yesterday completed the merger of its 2 game subsidiaries, Nzin and Daum Games, now known as Nzin Corporation. If you did not know, Kakao is the operator of Korea’s most-used mobile messenger, KakaoTalk. The merger happened as Kakao found it hard to battle competitors such as Nexon and NCsoft, with only Black Desert as the shining light.

Nzin Corporation is now a multi-platform business, handling mobile games, PC games, console games, and virtual reality products. As mentioned previously, Nzin Corporation will also expand overseas, rather than just remaining in South Korea. Namkoong, a co-founder of Hangame (NHN Entertainment), has been entrusted to turn the company into a global game publishing powerhouse.
