The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Philippines (MLBB PH) released its three-episode 515 Anime Series of its heroes – Wanwan, Ling, and Yin, as part of the 515 PH campaign. This is the first time MLBB PH created an Anime, Comics, and Games (ACG) content that gives fans and gamers greater immersion and touchpoints with their favourite game.
“At MLBB PH, we always listen to our fans and gamers. After finding out that they are fond of the ACG content, we made sure to create for them through the 515 PH campaign. We hope our anime-style character clips could further excite our fans as they play the game,” according to a spokesperson from MLBB Philippines.
The first video tells the story of Wanwan’s skin character who popular Filipino actress Sue Ramirez portrays. The clip includes Filipino elements, such as a Kwek Kwek (boiled quail eggs) stand where she met Yu Zhong, an agent who later betrayed her. In the video, fans can also see Wanwan singing the 515 Global theme song titled “We Better Than Me.”
On the second episode, fans can witness Ling as portrayed by MLBB professional athlete Ashley Marco “Killuash” Cruz. The video highlights the heroic role of the assassin who saved a man selling Balut (boiled duck egg) from the abusive minions of Zilong.
Lastly, the third episode features Yin, who is portrayed by famous MLBB streamer Oscar “Sumpak” Romero. Sumpak is one of the fastest-rising names in the MLBB world and video game streaming in the Philippines. The character has shown Yin’s perseverance, working his way to victory in martial arts despite multiple attempts.
“I feel grateful to MOONTON Games for having been part of this Anime Series that features Filipino stars and players and some of our cultures. We hope fellow MLBB gamers like me who are into ACG also could enjoy streaming these videos,” said Sue Ramirez.
