Games and Professional sports aren’t polar opposites, in fact there’s a ton of overlap between them. Just ask the large number of NBA players hooked on Epic Games’ mega-hit battle royale, Fortnite.
In the Philippines though, the country’s best ballers aren’t hooked on Fortnite. Oh no, the game of choice here is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. It’s not a surprise, as Mobile Legends took over the mobile gaming scene in the country when released last year. Its success isn’t a surprise, given that it packs fun MOBA action that’s both quick and easy to pick up and play.
After more than a year since releasing, Mobile Legends announced a landmark collab with the Pinoy basketball scene. The collaboration is lead by leading Pinoy basketball players (including Japeth Aguilar, Junemar Fajardo, and Kiefer Ravena), and brings with it basketball-themed skins, limited-edition jersey, and a slew of offline activities.
Aside from real-life merch, the best part of the collab is the basketball skin for ML hero Balmond. Watch the trailer for the said skin here:
Gustong mapatunayan ni Balmond na siya ang laging sentro, mapa-battlefield man o sa court. Ang bagong Balmond Savage point guard skin ay nalalapit na! Sakupin ang court gamit ang wild baller!#MobileLegendsBangBang#MLBBNewSkin
