NHN USA is a wholly owned subsidiary of NHN Corporation, a major Korean publisher and developer of free to play games. Founded in 2006, NHN USA is best known for its shooting games like GunZ, Soldier Front, and AVA. They’ve expanded into other genres with the fantasy MMORPG S.U.N and racing MMO Drift City, but they’ve had the largest success with their ‘channeling’ feature. The IJJI portal now lists more games from other publishers than their own offerings. This service allows publishers to reach IJJI’s audience and allows NHN to share in the revenue generated.
