Nexon races KartRider onto Facebook later this year


Yeah, yeah, so you've already heard that Nexon is bringing its KartRider franchise to iOS and Android devices later this month. (Don't forget about MapleStory on Facebook!) However, Inside Social Games (ISG) found out from Nexon VP of Social Games Operations, Soo Min Park, that KartRider will also be released on Facebook through the Unity Engine. Players will be able to race as the game downloads thanks to this emergent technology in the social games space. Micro-transactions have also been confirmed, while KartRider is scheduled for an extremely vague release date: "later this year." In related news, ISG also discovered that mulitplayer in MapleStory Adventures will be asynchronous (dammit, Nexon!).
