One MMO company definitely wants to get noticed at this E3. Webzen's booth is big
, almost as large as nearby THQ and Activision, and they're putting on a show for the crowds. With dancing booth babes, a loud emcee and armour-clad models -- as well as plastering all the cafeteria tables with ads -- Webzen's attack on the Western world is well and truly here.
Of Webzen's three games being shown at E3, only one is out in the near future -- Huxley
. Soul of the Ultimate Nation
will make its way to the U.S. in 2007 (no word of an European release), and Project Wiki
is slated for a Korea-only release at the moment. So why the big fuss?
Webzen believe that in Huxley
they have the tools to break into the Western market, and make a name for themselves worldwide. The joint Xbox 360/PC release is at once a risk and an adventure for them -- and they want gamers to sit up and pay attention to it.
