CCP Games and Nexon Co., Ltd., announced today that they will launch the much-anticipated localized Japanese version of CCP’s massively multiplayer science-fiction game EVE Online March 28 (March 29, Tokyo time).EVE heads to Japan

Japanese players will now be able to access EVE Online in their native language, playing alongside hundreds of thousands of fellow gamers from around the world who share the single-shard EVE Online universe hosted on CCP’s Tranquility server. CCP will continue development of the game itself and handle gameplay related customer support, while Nexon will manage all billing needs, along with local marketing and PR services to drive player growth within the region.

CCP’s announcement with Nexon continues a steady drumbeat of international expansion. CCP announced last week a partnership with online game operator TianCity to distribute EVE Online in mainland China. EVE Online also supports play in English, Russian and German.

With more than 400,000 global subscribers, EVE is the only MMO to have grown every year in the past eight years since its launch. The worldwide success of EVE Online has driven CCP’s rapid growth, with offices in Reykjavik, Shanghai, Atlanta, and Newcastle, UK, and two new games in development, DUST 514 and World of Darkness.
