Arena of Valor is one of the biggest mobile games in the world – though it has seemingly struggled to gain much traction in the West.
While the MOBA has captured audiences in China, generating hundreds of millions of dollars every month, over here it just hasn’t attracted the same level of audience.
But now it’s getting a second chance outside of mobile, thanks to an upcoming Switch launch, and from our hands-on with the beta, the change in console could also see a change in fortunes for the game.
Arena of Valor is a 5v5 MOBA set on a three-lane battlefield, on which players are tasked with destroying towers and ultimately the opponent’s base to steal victory.
It’s about as familiar a setup as a MOBA can get, so if you’ve played anything in the genre before, you’ll already feel right at home here.
