Los Angeles, CA – December 12, 2007 – Nexon America Inc. is lighting up KartRider's Arctic Rim with Christmas ornaments and decorations this holiday season. With tracks from Arctic Rim reverberating Christmas spirit, KartRider is also presenting holiday events, music and prizes to supplement the festivities. Already surpassing enormous expectations, KartRider, the free-to-download, free-to-play online multiplayer racing game, is anticipating an influx of new and returning users during the holidays. More information can be found at http://kart.nexon.net.
More specifically, Shark's Fin, Penguin Town, and Ice Cave, the three tracks that currently comprise the Arctic Rim courses in KartRider, received a Christmas makeover that includes candy cane poles, penguins clad in Santa gear, and jingly bells amongst the numerous decorations. There will also be Christmas carol background music. Much like the neighbors on your block who are fiercely prideful of their annual Christmas light decorations, Nexon America is going all-out in an effort to bring holiday spirit to the rapidly growing number of KartRider users.
In addition to the decorations, KartRider is rolling out bigger events and prizes in the spirit of the season. KartRider's Holiday Marathon, an endurance race for serious kart enthusiasts, boasts rewards such as laptop computers and Ipods, among other must-have holiday gifts. KartRider's Myspace users are getting involved with the Holiday Wish List event, which prompts users to leave comments on the KartRider Myspace page stating which item from the Item Shop they'd like to receive for Christmas and why; winners will be selected to receive their holiday wish based their comments provided.
Also being released this month is the Holiday Plate and Holiday Baton items. The plate will be available in the Item Shop while the baton will be awarded to users who complete a certain amount of races in a quest. The Holiday Plate and Holiday Baton allow users to show their spirit through two different venues and promises to light up the karts of millions of users.
With all the decorations, events, and gifts, it's shaping up to be a very merry Christmas for KartRider users.

Nexon plans a pedal to the metal onslaught of promotions, contests, and events in coordination with KartRider's launch schedule to "drive" this title to success!
