SEOUL, May 16 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's top game publisher Nexon Korea Corp. said Wednesday it will launch a new massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) next month.

The R-rated MMORPG "Kaiser" will be available for pre-release starting June 3 and officially launched June 7, the company said.

The number of preorders for the game, which began April 19, currently stands at 1 million, according to Nexon Korea.

The company will also review the game's global launch if it successfully lands in the domestic market, it said.

Industry watchers say a heated competition with "Lineage M," a mobile megahit game developed by NCSOFT Corp., is expected. It has become the most popular game app both on the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store in several countries since its launch in 2017.
