“Marvel Contest of Champions is a high-quality game with strong Marvel IP which owns a huge fan base worldwide,” said NetEase vice president Li Riqiang

“We are pleased to work together with Kabam on the Chinese Android version release of Marvel Contest of Champions and look forward to bringing the thrilling game experience to more Chinese players.”

Kabam CEO Tim Fields added: "Publishing Marvel Contest of Champions in China through NetEase is a natural fit for Kabam. We want players around the world to be able to enjoy our games together.
