The NetMarble metaverse has been introduced by South Korea’s biggest mobile game development studio, NetMarble. They have said that they will also begin working on new games that revolve around the NFT ecosystem.
NetMarble confirmed in a press release that they will begin concentrating on new titles that revolve around blockchain elements. “We want to develop metaverse games which provide users, individuals or companies, to acquire virtual assets that can be exchanged for real assets like currency via blockchain technology,” said their chairman, Bang Jun-hyuck.”
Their initial development in digital currencies is to create a sequel to their hugely popular board game, Everyone’s Marble. The ‘Everyone’s Marble’ metaverse allows players to purchase, sell and trade land and buildings in a virtual version of Korea.
The move by NetMarble is largely due to the fact that South Korea recently announced that crypto prizes games will be banned from any app stores. This is to say that NetMarble cannot make any profits in their home country. Thus, we have to concentrate on other global markets. Luckily for Net Marble, this should not be a problem, because in 2021, 74% of the company’s revenue was from global sales.
NetMarble is a mobile games development company founded in 2000 in South Korea. The company was established by Bang Jun-hyuck. Some of their biggest games are “BTS WORLD”, ‘District 187: Sin Streets’, ‘Dragon Ball Online’, and ‘Marvel: Future Fight’. This company is the biggest company in South Korea in the mobile game industry. They have more than 3,000 employees in the country. In addition, the company bought just over 25% of Big Hit Entertainment, the K-Pop agency, BTS. From 2015, they have had a contract with Disney that led them to make many Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney games.
