‘Dofus Touch’ Based on Long-Running MMORPG Soft Launches in Canada

Long-running French turn-based-strategy-inspired MMORPG Dofus is on its way to mobile as Dofus Touch. While this is separate from the main Dofus game on desktop, this is meant to be an adaptation for mobile. That means that the interface has been built for tablets, and the game will be on par with the 2.14 update of Dofus content-wise. Players will have to create new characters for Dofus Touch, and the game will eschew a subscription model for a more traditional mobile free-to-play business model, though Apple did just announce subscriptions for games.
