TOKYO -- February 18, 2014

NEXON Co., LTD. (“Nexon”)(3659.TO), a worldwide leader in free-to-play online
games, today announced it has launched the full 3D massively multi-play online
role playing game (“MMORPG”) Legion of Heroes in Korea.

Developed and serviced by Nexon subsidiary NDOORS Corporation (“NDOORS”), the
studio behind hit strategy games Atlantica and Epic of the Three Kingdoms,
Legion of Heroes is an epic tale of heroes who have set off to foil the
Sovereign of Darkness Rideran's scheme to plunge the world into chaos. Players
encounter a variety of heroes on their journey, with whom they can combine
forces to accomplish their quest.

Powered by the Unity engine, Legion of Heroes features stunning full 3D
graphics with a rich fantasy storyline, turn-based attack sequences and
multiple camera angles from which to choose. Players can enhance and upgrade
their heroes and equipment using treasure collected throughout their
adventures, and can create and join guilds with other players. Players can
select hero battle and coliseum modes. Hero battle mode pits users against
each other in player versus player (PVP) battles where they can use up to 15
heroes to battle for their opponent’s gold. Coliseum mode features strategic
PVP battles where players are matched up to battle regardless of their ability
level. Legion of Heroes also features the “Tower of Chaos” where up to four
players can join forces using 12 heroes in a room-by-room fight through the
tower.

“As the expectations for high-quality mobile content are increasing, we are
excited to deliver such a rich mobile experience to players in Korea,” said
Owen Mahoney, President and Chief Executive Officer-elect of Nexon. “Legion of
Heroes is a thrilling title that offers a unique online MMORPG experience that
players can conveniently play anytime, anywhere.”

Legion of Heroes is available for download from Google Play for Android OS
smart phone users in Korea.
