NAT Games – Nexon spends big to sign new mobile game from HIT studio

According to the Korean media, Korean developer NAT Games has signed the global publishing rights of its second mobile game to Nexon. If you did not know, NAT Games is the developer of HIT (Heroes of Incredible Tales), currently operated by Nexon too. The finding was discovered through a document filing in Korea’s Financial Supervisory Service (FSS). Congratulations to NAT Games!

The submitted document also revealed the game is tentatively known as “Overheat”, and is crafted using Unreal Engine 4. The contract was signed with Nexon just this month, and is scheduled to launch at the end of this year. “Overheat” is described as a mobile RPG, where the core gameplay is about “fostering, strengthening, collecting and growing various heroes.” Sounds pretty familiar.

Nexon apparently paid NAT Games around USD 13 million for the global publishing rights of “Overheat”. NAT Games, currently with 186 employees, has also started work on its 3rd game, code-named “Next Game 2”. Research for the game started in January this year, and it is aimed to be a MMORPG (platform not clear). “Next Game 2” is scheduled for launch in 2019.
