We said it before and we'll say it again: "ball is life" for a lot of Filipinos. On the court or beside the street, in their OGs or flip-flops, you'll see the sport being played anywhere in this country.
Basketball is a sport that stood the test of time in the Philippines. Now combine it with one of the current hit multiplayer games, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (which in itself amassed a multitude of Pinoy players), and you get yourself the next big, exciting pastime.
Balmond, one of MLBB's epic heroes, headlines this update. Balmond's new "skin" turns him into a "savage point guard," donning a basketball jersey and delivering slam dunks. It's not every day we see a multiplayer online battle arena mobile game with a skin option like that.
It doesn't stop there. To really connect with players at a deeper level, the creative minds from MLBB collaborated with leading Filipino basketball players, including PBA favorite, Ginebra's all-star forward and MLBB player himself, Japeth Aguilar.
“I find a lot of commonalities and shared values between MLBB and basketball most especially when it comes to forming a bond, and getting better together in the game as a team. Both games are exciting team sports and I’m quite sure Filipino fans feel the same passion towards the unique experience MLBB and basketball brings," he said.
Basketball is a popular sport within the country and among MLBB players, so entering the basketball scene is sure to keep its loyal following, all while keeping the game in the top charts.
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is developed and published by Moonton.
