Nexon Buys Tokyo-Based Mobile Social Game Maker InBlue [Social Games]


Korean gaming powerhouse Nexon (headquartered and listed in Japan) announced it will acquire Tokyo-based mobile social game maker inBlue.

Founded in 2010, the startup currently runs a total of six games on GREE and Mobage (on both feature phones and smartphones).

Nexon itself, which already released mobile social games in Japan (a special version of MapleStory is available on GREE), says it will roll out more titles on GREE and Mobage going forward – which is probably why they are buying inBlue.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
