Gamevil has acquired the South Korean mobile developer Waplesoft for an undisclosed amount.
Waplesoft was founded in 2008, establishing its reputation on a string of social network games. However, Gamevil highlighted the studio's potential to become an "RPG-specific developer," based on games like Three Kingdom Battle Line.
That much will be apparent from the first game to be released under the new partnership: Elune Saga, a hybrid of RPG and card collection that soft-launched in several Asian territories recently.
Gamevil is a company in rude health at the moment, adding a new office in Singapore to its existing premises in Seoul, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Beijing.
The company's Q3 financial results were also impressive, showing a 102 per cent year-on-year growth in revenue and a 449 per cent growth in net profit.
