Nexon’s Q3 2016 financials ‘solid’ thanks to China, MapleStory, and Dungeon&Fighter

Nexon’s third quarter financial report is out this week, and the company is calling it a “solid” one, with revenues boosted higher than expected thanks to overperforming updates for MapleStory and Dungeon&Fighter but still down 11% year-over-year (though up once currency exchange is taken into account – the Japanese yen has become more valuable relative to the Chinese yuan, the source of most of its recent gains).

As noted earlier this week, the company is bringing 35 games (of which 7 are for PC and 28 are for mobile) to G-Star in Seoul later this month; that, plus games just released in Japan and a push into the Thai market, has the company bristling with confidence in 2017.

The western chunk of Nexon’s pie is still relatively small, but Nexon is touting the launches of Riders of Icarus and HIT as contributing to year-over-year growth in North America.
