Netmarble Games Corp., the fastest-growing mobile game company in Asia, today announced that it has positioned at least one game within the Top 5 grossing chart in 77 countries around the world as of July 5.
According to the top grossing chart of App Annie, a business intelligence company, games including Lineage2 Revolution and MARVEL Contest of Champions dominated the grossing charts and became Top 5 in global locations including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, India, and Brazil.
Kabam, which became Netmarble’s wholly-owned subsidiary in February, clinched the top grossing spot in the U.S. App Store rankings and also positioned itself in 70 countries including the U.S. The success was largely due to the exciting new contents introduced into the game in time for the new Spider-Man movie release, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Netmarble’s Lineage2 Revolution, which launched in 11 Asian countries on June 14 has also had success of its own, becoming the Top 5 in 7 Asian countries including South Korea, which had shown a dominant path since the game’s release. Other countries include Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, and Macau.
“Our players are increasingly enjoying our games with MARVEL Contest of Champions stealing the hearts of the fans in the West and Lineage2 Revolution becoming one of the top games in Asia,” said Seungwon Lee, Chief Global Officer of Netmarble Games. “Lineage2 Revolution is also set to release in Japan in 3Q and in the U.S. in 4Q, which will help our global performance.”
With mobile MMORPG Lineage2 Revolution set to launch in Japan in 3Q and in the West in 4Q, 670K players have pre-registered in Japan, and the U.S. market had its glimpse of the game during this year’s GDC which was held in San Francisco.
Jam City, which Netmarble is the largest shareholder to, is also receiving positive feedback and performing well with Panda Pop, Cookie Jam, Family Guy Another Freakin’ Mobile Game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, and Genies & Gems.
