Nexon is launching KartRider Rush for iPhone and iPod Touch today. The mobile version of the immensely popular PC game, played by more than 200 million people worldwide, is now available to download for free in the Apple App Store.
KartRider Rush is a colorful, fast-paced racer that will allow up to four players to compete against each other on unique and challenging maps in both a battle mode and time trial mode. A single player mode allows players to race against AIs in Item Mode and Speed Mode, and players can compare their scores against friends online using Facebook Connect.
KartRider Rush follows Nexon’s microtransaction-based model which allows players to download and play the game for free, providing the option to enhance the gameplay experience through the purchase of additional customization items and racetracks.
“The release of KartRider Rush on the iOS platform is a significant step forward for Nexon,” said Soo Min Park, Nexon America’s vice president of social game operations. “We aim to offer our games to the widest audience possible, and opening up one of our most popular properties to the mobile platform demonstrates our dedication to providing high quality games with no barrier to entry.”
Nexon will also be releasing KartRider Rush for iPad, the Android operating system and for Facebook later this year.
