When I played the game during the first Switch beta test, I said Tencent Games wasn't screwing around. It still isn't. This is the absolute premier way to play the game. Arena of Valor may have been born on mobile, but on Switch is where it feels at home.

Despite my initial confusion, Arena of Valor is probably one of the best MOBAs to get into if you're new to the series. With its beginner-friendly features and plenty of heroes to choose from, it's fairly easy to learn your way around and start competing against other players.

Ultimately, I'd say Arena of Valor is a great appetizer to the greater world of MOBA games. It's definitely got to be one of the best mobile takes on the genre I've ever played, and there's no doubt I'll boot it up every so often on my Switch. As mentioned, I think having some friends to go in with would help out a lot, especially if you'd like to win. A little coordination goes a long way in this game considering matches move at a lightning fast pace compared to others. It runs well, looks great, and is a whole lot of fun to play on the Nintendo Switch. It'll be interesting to see whether or not the community on Switch will grow in the coming future.
