Meanwhile, over in Europe, this is happening. Korea’s most popular musical export lends his gentlemanly style to two of Korea’s most popular online gaming exports. I can see PSY in MapleStory, but Combat Arms?
“Gangnam Style” set the world on fire, and then “Gentleman” set the world on ok, I guess that’s all PSY had to offer, moving on. Now Nexon is letting MapleStory players in Europe hang out with the man.
Players of MapleStory will have the chance to embark upon a number of special missions to assist PSY during his stay in Maple Town, including rescuing him from an alien abduction and helping him prepare for his concerts. Special items can be earned from the events such as pets, hair, t-shirts, chairs and a special PSY ring.
And over in Nexon’s competitive online shooter…
Combat Arms players will also have access to a number of rewards. After PSY’s posts have received enough “Likes”, each player gets a chance to get their hands on in-game PSY items. Also, players will get ‘Gentleman’ case each day they log-in for the first week.
