NetEase will help launch Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA Vainglory in China.
Additionally, the Chinese publisher will assist in upcoming cross-platforms ports in the region, bringing the currently mobile-exclusive title to PC, Mac, and eventually consoles in 2019.
"China represents the lion's share of the global gaming market, and in recent years has become a cauldron of innovation in the game industry," said Super Evil Megacorp CEO Kristian Segerstrale.
"We have a very exciting and close partnership with NetEase to not only publish our title in our category-defining cross-platform MOBA experience for Chinese gamers but to also learn from the local market for our global success."
NetEase CEO William Ding added: "Vainglory will be a defining title for cross-platform competitive gaming, and we are committed to working closely with Super Evil Megacorp for the launch of Vainglory 4.0 in China."
NetEase has an established business in taking western titles to China. The company is helping with work on Diablo Immortal, Blizzard’s mobile entry in the hack n’ slash series that was met with a “muted” response at Blizzcon.
The Chinese publisher will also release a scaled-down mobile edition of PC MMORPG Eve: Online titled Eve: Echoes in 2019.
