Rumble Entertainment Scores Another $17.5 Million

Free-to-play mobile and online game developer Rumble Entertainment has raised $17.5 million in a Series B round led by Nexon, the company announced today. That brings its total funding to more than $35 million. Tokyo-based Nexon was a previous Rumble investor, and last month kicked in an undisclosed amount toward ex-Zynga COO John Schappert’s Shiver Entertainment. Rumble’s first game, the RPG Kings Road, launched as a browser game earlier this year, and is planned for a worldwide tablet release in early 2014, a company spokesperson said.
