SEOUL, Sept. 29 (Korea Bizwire) – South Korea’s game developers are competing to promote their own metaverse platforms as Naver Corp.’s Zepeto dominating local metaverse market.
NCSOFT Corp.’s Miniverse, up for release next month, is a platform where users can engage in a variety of online meetings in a 3D space through avatars.
The company plans to utilize Universe, a K-pop fandom platform, to start a metaverse service targeting fans.
Nexon Co. introduced Maplestory World this month, created based on the company’s signature game “MapleStory.”
The metaverse platform was created using MapleStory’s unique 2D dot design and music, allowing users to create a world of their own and share it with others.
Netmarble Corp. plans to release “Everybody’s Marble: Metaworld,” a metaverse real estate platform, this year.
The platform is designed after an actual city, in which users can purchase land and erect buildings, which become non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that can be used for trade with others.
