With the MOBA genre heating up in Japan, Square Enix is looking to take a slice of the pie by introducing Lord of Vermilion: Arena last month. Featuring a card-summon system with a 7 vs 7 format, the Alpha Test will begin a week from now. A new gameplay trailer was also revealed recently.
Based on the popular Lord of Vermilion series in Japan, the game might sound unfamiliar to gamers in the West. It is definitely a smart move by Square Enix, as the MOBA known as Chaos Heroes Online is really popular in Japan, with Riot Games preparing to launch League of Legends as well.
