HanbitSoft Accelerates Overseas Expansion

HanbitSoft has announced that it is ready to take a number of titles abroad.AIKA Online – a “massive battle MMORPG” that’s been developed by Joy Impact – went into open beta in December, and has apparently been well-received by Korean gamers. It’s expected to make the move to America, Taiwan, and Japan around Autumn, with Gala-Net handling US distribution.The advantages of this MMO? “Unlike other MMORPGs with heavy clients, AIKA Online has a light client of only 300MB,” according to Ki Young Kim, the CEO of HanbitSoft. Apparently, it’s also likely to attract “more […] diverse gamers than most other MMORPGs.”Audition2, the sequel to the rhythm-action online game, is going to be heading into Indonesia shortly, with HanbitSoft “making progress in multiple discussions concerning advances in other regions.” We suspect this means that it’s going to be heading elsewhere before too long, although very little is known about the game itself.And other than those, we’ve got Spike Girls, an online kickball game, and Camon Hero, a card-collecting MMO, with HanbitSoft taking “more aggressive actions” with regards to getting them overseas.The company is hoping to move into over five regions within the first half of this year, so expect more news on their expansion soon. It looks like a busy year for the Korean company, particularly with the constant stream of Hellgate content they’re pushing out.
