“Nirvanana and KRAFTON have something in common in that they both focus on developing games that bring fun to players around the world,” said Kim Nam-seok, CEO of Nirvanana. “We will do our best to develop the next-generation character skill fighting game ZETA as a new IP that will continue the success.”
