Players can also engage in real-time battles against other players in multiplayer mode.
Sweet Monster made its debut in the international market in 2014. Line, Asia’s messaging giant, adopted a unique approach to its business model, which extended to its gaming subsidiary, Line Next.
Instead of concentrating solely on domestic markets for business expansion, Line opted to capitalize on Korea’s first character in the food and beverage industry. Over time, they transformed this character into a global brand with a focus on desserts, like chocolate, popcorn, and cake.
Since then, this global brand has expanded Sweet Monster’s narrative by broadening its IP character licensing. Line Next has additionally forged collaborations across various content creation realms, including gaming, animation, mobile messaging, and more.
