Mech Arena welcomes Neymar Jr. as its new brand ambassador

Plarium Global made quite a huge announcement today as they roped in the wildly popular footballer Neymar Jr. into their mobile multiplayer shooter Mech Arena. The developers have formed a partnership with NR Sports, making Neymar Jr. the brand ambassador of the game. He will dash into Mech Arena sporting a classic bomber jacket, becoming the strongest pilot in the game.

Much needn’t be said about Neymar Jr., considering his immense popularity. The Brazilian footballer who also plays forward for Paris Saint-Germain FC has scored over 450 goals and is the perfect combination of style and swagger. All this led to creating a unique pilot on Mech Arena.

Speaking about the partnership, Ronen Gross, VP of Business Development at Plarium, said: “We are honoured and excited to have such an amazing talent joining as a pilot in Mech Arena. Neymar Jr. is one of the best athletes in the world. His professionalism and desire to win are what made us choose him as it is aligned with the game’s spirit. Working with him was a true pleasure and we can’t wait to see our players enjoy Neymar Jr’s pilot.”

Every Pilot on Mech Arena is designed with a distinctive skillset. Neymar Jr.’s abilities include boosting his damage while also increasing his speed, just like another footballer would hope for. He has the highest number of implant slots and uses various implant skills to make use of game-changing attributes, making him one of the stronger Pilots.

Neymar Jr. himself, commenting on his addition to Mech Arena, said: “I love gaming just as much as I love football, so combining the two to make a character with my skills and style in Mech Arena was an amazing experience. I can’t wait to join my fans and help take their game to the next level. I’ll see you in the Arena!”
