Nexon and Valve have announced a partnership initiative that will see DOTA 2 published in both Japan and Korea. As of this writing, there is no announced date for the game's publication.
Gabe Newell, President of Valve Corporation, said, “Nexon, a company with whom we have a long and strong relationship, was clearly the right choice as a publisher to successfully deliver Dota 2 into the Korean and Japanese market.
