Arena of Valor is looking for Switch owners in Europe to beta test the game


The closed beta for the Nintendo Switch version of Arena of Valor will be available for Europeon Switch owners soon.

Arena of Valor is a popular mobile game made by Tencent. It was announced to be coming to the Nintendo Switch during September’s Nintendo Direct livestream as Nintendo’s first ever MOBA title on a Nintendo system.

In order to access the beta, the Arena of Valor team is asking players to fill out a small survey about the Nintendo Switch and their gaming habits. By completing the survey, players will not be guaranteed a spot in the beta itself, but will be put into a draw to get a code in the future.

There is currently no set date for when the beta will go live.

When the game was initially revealed to be coming to Nintendo platforms back in September, Nintendo’s stock price jumped by more than seven percent in the week in response to the Chinese Internet giant Tencent supporting the console.

The Chinese market has proved to be lucrative for Nintendo in recent years. The company has added Chinese language options into it’s biggest titles like Pokémon and Super Mario Odyssey and has even ported popular Wii titles to the NVIDIA Shield in China.

The beta will give players a chance to test the game before its eventual full release onto the Nintendo Switch.
