MANILA, 17 February – M4 World Champions ECHO has officially confirmed Chou as their chosen hero to co-design with international gaming developer and published MOONTON Games. The team was given the chance to work with Mobile Legends: Bang Bang maker as part of the perks for winning the world’s biggest MLBB tournament.
“The team has unanimously decided to develop a skin for Chou. Apart from it being the hero that almost all of our team members use, it has also played a big part in our team’s success in the tournament. We’re excited and glad to work with MOONTON Games who has been attentive and collaborative when it comes to our ideas,” says Mitch Liwanag, ECHO country manager.
MOONTON Games and ECHO are currently in talks to discuss the details of the in-game commemorative skin. It is expected to be launched in September 2023.
“We hope our fans are as excited as we are to see the new skin. After all, we dedicate the skin to Orcas who have been with us through the years,” adds two-time world champion Karl Gabriel “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno.
Chou will be the very first fighter hero to receive a skin from a world champion. Since M1 World Championship, every winning team has had a say in which hero they want to have a skin that is designed based on their preference.
In 2019, Indonesia’s EVOS Legends chose Harith. Meanwhile, the Philippines’ Bren Esports picked Lancelot and Blacklist International designed Estes after winning M2 and M3, respectively.
