Kabam partnering with NetEase to bring Marvel: Contest of Champions to China
Contest of Champions, a free-to-play fighting game comprised of about 148 playable characters from across the Marvel comic and cinematic universe, is doing pretty well for itself. That revenue also managed to make it the number two mobile game globally behind Tencent’s Honor of Kings. Riposte now operates under the Kabam Montreal moniker. South Korea’s Netmarble acquired Kabam back in 2017 for $800 million, which encouraged the studio to undergo some serious restructuring. GameDaily has asked Kabam about the specifics of their deal with NetEase, and whether they’ve had to make any alterations to Contest of Champions to gain the approval of the Chinese government.
