Soccer Game Anyone?

Looks like soccer games are not so popular in this seemingly soccer-crazy country. According to thisisgame.com, only FIFA Online (developed and serviced by Neowiz) is thriving in Korea.

Not-so-fortunate games include Red Card (레드카드), Extreme Soccer (익스트림 사커), Full Time (풀타임) and?recently-discontinued Kick Off – most of them were developed in the hope of riding the 2006 World Cup frenzy.

But don’t fret soccer game fans out there because AniPark who developed the popular baseball game Ma9 (마구마구) is currently developing a soccer game Cha9 (차구차구). Also, JCE is working on Freestyle Football (프리스타일 풋볼) after enjoying its success in basketball game Freestyle (프리스타일).
