Valve‘s Managing Director, Gabe Newell said that they are working on DoTA 2 to run on some tablets. Surprised? Don’t be. It’s not the matter of running the game smoothly, as this will eventually be achieved somewhere in the near future. The major concern is the controls since the game is highly competitive and requires decent reflexes to play.
News just came in that, in the Land of Rising Sun and plastic surgery, folks will be getting their very own DOTA 2 thanks to an agreement between Valve and online game publisher Nexon.
Valve president Gabe Newell said recently, “Nexon, a company with whom we have a long and strong relationship, was clearly the right choice as a publisher to successfully deliver Dota 2 into the Korean and Japanese market. Partnering with Nexon will allow us to deliver Dota 2 to a massive audience of Asian gamers via a premium service.”
Do remember that Nexon holds the rights for Maple Story, Dragon Nest, Sudden Attack and many more.
