Valve Partners with Nexon to bring Dota 2 to Korea and Japan


Online game company Nexon has partnered with Valve to publish the company’s free-to-play PC game Dota 2 in both Korea and Japan, where Nexon has a much bigger presence than the developer.

Min Seo, CEO of Nexon Korea Corporation had this to say:

‘We are very excited about working with Valve to publish Dota 2 and build on the worldwide momentum of the highly successful franchise. We look forward to providing players in Japan and Korea the opportunity to experience this exciting new game,’ said Min Seo, CEO of Nexon Korea Corporation.

Gabe Newell, President of Valve Corporation, said:

‘Nexon, a company with whom we have a long and strong relationship, was clearly the right choice as a publisher to successfully deliver Dota 2 into the Korean and Japanese market. Partnering with Nexon will allow us to deliver Dota 2 to a massive audience of Asian gamers via a premium service.’

I know some people with horror stories of Nexon’s poor customer service but this isn’t actually Nexon America and if any company can keep them in line it’d be Valve.
