Apple thought so highly of Vainglory that it picked the game to show off the capabilities and visuals of the iPhone 6 in September. But the mobile multiplayer arena battler isn’t just on iOS any longer.

Today, developer Super Evil Megacorp said that its hit is preparing for a closed beta on Android devices. But not just any of the green bot-powered smartphones and tablets, though — you need a “high end” Nvidia Shield, Samsung Galaxy, or Google Nexus device.

It’s another sign of the importance on being on various platforms in the ultracompetitive mobile gaming industry — a business market researcher Newzoo predicts could hit more than $30 billion this year.

You can sign up for the closed beta here. You can also play it on Android at this weekend’s PAX East convention in Boston.
