Over the years, there have been many games made based on the Korean novel Dragon Raja (not the Chinese one), but yet the original PC MMORPG launched in 2000 remains the most iconic. There were a few mobile games made as well, but none found success. Korean publisher NESM is preparing to change that, as it announced acquiring the publishing rights for Dragon Raja EX, an upcoming mobile RPG by local developer EX4GAMES.
Both companies are relatively unknown, hence there is not much hype surrounding this news in South Korea. According to reports, Dragon Raja EX is a mobile collectible RPG with a medieval fantasy background devoted to sticking to the original source material as much as possible. It is characterized by a unique training system that progresses through the bond between dragons and raja (the owner). Each party will have 5 characters fighting in real-time.
