Asian free-to-play gaming giant Nexon reported second quarter revenues and earnings that underscore its proven enterprize model, this company announced today. And the main firepower behind the organization’s financials result from online games which are more than a decade old.

Once again, it will make you wonder if free-to-play games, in places you play the sport for free and pay real cash for virtual goods, is usually a far better structure than selling games at retail for $60 each, as is also popular within the West.

Revenue within the second quarter was $430.5 million, up 2 percent on the same quarter last year. Net income was $290 million within the quarter, up from $173 million last year. The company said the outcome underscored the corporation’s strength in live services for ongoing games and validated its enterprize model. But the business also got a large boost from the favorable value with the U.S. dollar.

Dungeon Fighter and MapleStory are both a lot more than 10 years old, but they carry on and grow in the players and revenues. Dungeon Fighter Online, referred to Buy MapleStory 2 Mesos

as Dungeon & Fighter in South Korea, is constantly on the engage players in China, while MapleStory showed particular strength in South Korea, where it grew 61 percent inside the quarter as compared to a year earlier.

“Nexon’s second quarter truly showcases the organization’s strength in live services and game operations since it validates our model,” said Owen Mahoney, CEO of Nexon. “We are seeing continued development in player numbers and revenues from your original intellectual properties, Dungeon & Fighter and MapleStory, at the same time as strong early success indicators from a number of new titles.”

Nexon took its South Korean hit, Overhit, and launched the sport in Japan with customizations unique compared to that market. That resulted within a positive response, Mahoney said. And Nexon’s mobile action role-playing game, Darkness Rises, may be downloaded greater than 10 million times worldwide to use first few weeks. MapleStory M, a mobile game, also launched recently in 140 countries.

Looking ahead, Nexon is going to be launching game services such as MapleStory2 within the West, Overhit with a worldwide basis, plus the recently announced Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed in Japan.

PC revenues exceeded Nexon’s outlook within the quarter, driven by strong performance of MapleStory in Korea, while mobile revenues were below the corporation’s outlook. Operating income was $144 million, greater than expected to some extent due to acquisitions of NAT Games. Costs were also a lesser amount than expected.

For your third fiscal quarter ending September 30, Nexon forecasts revenues of $548.8 million to $593 million. It expects net income for being $184.7 million to $216 million. Nexon was founded in 1994, and it also has in excess of 80 live games in 190 countries. You can keep eyes on MMOAH which is essentially the most reliable activity store to present amounts of cheap MS2 Mesos online.
