The newly formed 6waves Lolapps is already making a big splash in the social gaming space, despite only recently joining forces. According to a report from VentureBeat, the new company will receive investment from none other than MapleStory developer Nexon.
Though the Korea-based Nexon is best known for the browser-based MMO MapleStory, the company recently expanded to Facebook with the launch of MapleStory Adventures. By teaming up with an established company like 6waves Lolapps, which currently boasts a monthly active usersbase of around 35 million, Nexon is clearly attemtping to expand its Facebook presence.
“We are thrilled to be teaming up with 6waves Lolapps in such a significant way,” Nexon CEO Seung-woo Choi told VentureBeat. “By joining forces, we are combining 6waves Lolapps’ experience in publishing and developing social games with our extensive knowledge of free-to-play games and the microtransaction business model.”
Details of the investment have not yet been disclosed.
