Nexon, a Korean online game publisher best known for its Maple Story title, has announced the full acquisition of Ndoors. Ndoors is a fellow Korean-owned company, having developed GoonZu Online (also known as Luminary) and Atlantica Online for domestic and foreign markets. This acquisition builds on a previous partnership between Nexon and Ndoors, which led to the development KoongPa!, a comic-styled fighting MMO that was in beta for a short time.
Nexon is acquiring a 67 percent stake in Ndoors. This will include the shares of the former Ndoors chairman, Seong-Mun Kwon, and allows Nexon management rights as the largest shareholder. Ndoors will be incorporated as a subsidiary of Nexon. See Industry Gamers for more.
