Last year Shanda Interactive Entertainment acquired Dragon Nest's developer Eyedentity Games, which was seen as a milestone of the company's oversea plan. On his speech, Shanda's CEO confidently explained his company's blueprint in 2011 and the future, and he specifically pointed out that Dragon Nest will be exported to SEA through a Southeast Asian publisher.

It's a little bit complicated for NA and EU market. Will Shanda replace NEXON and become the publisher there? Shanda's CEO claims that they've entered NA and EU market and set up distribution platform. Besides, NEXON Europe hasn't announced anything about Dragon Nest(EU) but Shanda's confirmed its existence, what do you think about that?

Officially, Nexon is still the publisher of NA, and probably EU, but they've been in silence for a long time...
