Global fans waiting for new games to come in months

South Korean game corporation Netmarble announced on June 1 that the global giant would come up with three new games during the second half of this year.

They are Seven Knights Idle Adventure, Tower of God: New World, and Grand Cross: Age of Titans.

To be released in September, Seven Knights Idle Adventure is about the success story of Netmarble’s popular franchise Seven Knights, an online free-to-play role-playing game.

It is an idle game, which progresses with minimum control of the player, which has gained big popularity in major markets, including the United States, South Korea, and Japan.

Tower of God: New World is a role-playing game. Based on a popular webtoon of the same title, it has a fantasy story of a boy entering a mysterious tower in search of a girl.

The original webtoon debuted in 2010 to attract more than 6 billion views across the world. A mobile game will first come to town in July, and a PC version will follow later, according to Netmarble.

Grand Cross: Age of Titans will bring about two main characters who fall into another dimension in order to save a kingdom under danger along with other heroes.

“The three games have immersive storylines. People also will be able to easily play them,” Netmarble CEO Kwon Young-sig said at a media event at the firm’s head office in Seoul.

“We expect that the games will chalk up solid performances in the global market thanks to its low entry barriers, animation-like production, and outstanding strategies.”

Founded in 2000 by Bang Jun-hyuk, Netmarble has developed such games as Lineage 2: Revolution, Seven Knights, Everybody’s Marble, Marvel: Future Fight, Disney Magical Dice, and Star Wars: Force Arena.

Founder Bang is a cousin of HYBE owner Bang Si-hyuk. HYBE is the agency of the South Korean boy group BTS.
