EVE Online, one of the largest MMOs around, is about to get a bit bigger. Developer CCP has partnered with Nexon Co. to localize the game's client software for Japan this fall.

CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson said, "Having considered Nexon's excellent reputation as Asia's leading game developer and publisher, they were the obvious choice in who the best possible partner would be to help us make this game more accessible to our growing fan base in Japan."

Nexon Co., who is also responsible for popular Eastern MMOs like Maple Story, will make EVE Online available through its online portal. "We are pleased to have this opportunity to be a part of CCP's ongoing plans to provide premium services to their subscribers," stated spokesperson Seung-Woo Choi.

"Our shared commitment to quality and excellence is the ultimate cornerstone from which to build an even greater gaming experience for Japanese video game enthusiasts."
