After going through a successful beta test earlier this summer, Tencent's Arena of Valor is ready to take to full battle on the Nintendo Switch.

The publishing team at Tencent Games has announced that the free-to-play MOBA, which is gaining a pretty big audience on the mobile front, will be making its debut on Nintendo Switch next month. A specific date wasn't given just yet, but more than likely it could be coinciding with the launch of Nintendo's online service for the system, somewhere over the second half of the month. You can view the latest trailer above, which runs through what you can look forward to from the Switch edition of the game!
