Korean online games super power Nexon announced today that it will be supporting the DS with one of its biggest PC titles. The company will be bringing Maple Story to the system for Korean release this September. A release in Japan, America and Europe has yet to be announced, but is being planned.
Nexon actually first announced support for the platform back at the G-Star games event in November of last year. Today's announcement marks the first specific mention of a game.
And what a big announcement it is. Since its release in May of 2003, Maple Story has spread throughout the world, building a large online community in the process. Different from many other online titles out of Korea, Maple Story is a side scrolling action game designed for casual gamers.
Details on the DS version were not revealed as part of this announcement. Nexon plans to cooperate with Nintendo Korea in working out what makes its way over.
This announcement comes a little over a week before the 1/18 Korean release of the DS Lite. With a major Korean franchise supporting it, the DS Lite could end up being just a hit in Japan's neighbor as it has been in Japan itself.
