TOKYO -- July 29, 2013

NEXON Co., Ltd. (“Nexon”) (3659.TO), a worldwide leader in free-to-play online
games, today announced that Fantasy Runners for Kakao, a mobile game launched
and serviced by Nexon’s subsidiary NEXON Korean Corporation (“Nexon Korea”),
has surpassed 1 million downloads on the Apple App Store and Google Play just
one week after its launch. The game has ranked number two in both the App
Store and Google Play’s top grossing apps lists in Korea.

Developed by Korean mobile developer Moonrabbit, Fantasy Runners for Kakao is
a new genre of running game in which players select a combination of four
characters, each with varying features and strengths, to attack monsters as
they run. The side-scrolling action game blends elements of role-playing games
with unique in-game communications features, including the ability to borrow a
character from a fellow player, who in turn receives “gift points” for their
character’s participation.

Nexon has over 15 years of history as a leader in free-to-play gaming, and
will continue to bring innovative, quality games to PCs, mobile phones, and
tablets worldwide.
