NCsoft took over a mobile game studio named Hotdog Studio by purchasing 58.3% of shares in the company.
Hotdog Studio had developed <Orient Saga> <Dark Shrine> etc. for feature phones and has been seperated independantly from a mobile application company HuOne ever since January 2010.
As it became an independant smart phone studio, it made many games including <Ready Action> <Tap Tap Shooter 2+1>.
NCsoft said “We are enhancing our ability in smart phone environment for NCsoft’s future. The acquisition is not M&A but a share investment which is a part of the business expansion we have worked on for a long time.”
