NARAKA: BLADEPOINT IS COMING TO MOBILE
Naraka: Bladepoint is coming to mobile. That’s according to an announcement from NetEase that confirmed the game is still in early development and doesn’t have a release date on mobile stores.
The news comes courtesy of @ZogZhu, who works in Shanghai at an indie games publisher. The announcement so far hasn’t made its way to any of Naraka: Bladepoint’s English sites, so one assumes this means the game will first launch on mobile in China only. Monetization was not discussed, but ZogZhu suspects it’ll forgo the battle pass system for more individual microtransactions as is common in the mobile space.
Naraka: Bladepoint is one of the biggest success stories of 2021. Steam reported the game as one of the year’s bestsellers, and Bloomberg reported it as one of China’s fastest-selling PC games. And less than half a year later, Naraka: Bladepoint has already hosted its first world championship and crowned Jteam members WuXin98, WenLong, and Xi as the best Naraka: Bladepoint players in the world. They received $1.5 million in prize money for winning the championship in Singapore last weekend.
