A sports-adventure game that will allow you to experience the zero-to-hero journey of the legendary Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao is coming to mobile phones in early 2021.
From the creators of BAYANI – Fighting Game, the Filipino version of Street Fighter whose characters were inspired by our national heroes, comes another game that celebrates an important facet of Filipino culture. An EXCLUSIVE mobile game, FIGHTING PRIDE: The Manny Pacquiao Saga! will take players on a thrilling, action-packed, and addictive adaptation of Manny’s boxing journey.
The only boxer in history to win eight different weight divisions with 12 major titles, Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao is nothing short of phenomenal. More than that, every Filipino fan is aware of his story of rising from poverty to prominence– something that inspired Ranida Games to dedicate a game for the man.
“I’ve been watching Manny Pacquiao’s boxing fights since I was young, and it’s been one of my dreams to create a Pacquiao game since I started making games,” said Ben Banta, CEO of Ranida Games. “He’s not only served as an inspiration, but also brought happiness and pride to a lot of people. And as a huge fan of beat ‘em ups, the continuous wave of action it offers while telling a story makes this a perfect genre through which to share his life story.”
Ranida Games, a Philippine-based independent game development studio, is developing the game alongside OMG Inc., who owns exclusive worldwide rights to develop a mobile game featuring Manny Pacquiao’s life story and the use of his name, image and likeness.
In a statement, OMG President Mike Ochosa said, “From nothing to greatness, from the impossible to endless possibilities, Pacquiao’s life must be shared with all of us. His story is compelling as well as inspiring. What better way to impart that sentiment to the world than through a mobile game app?”
In Fighting Pride, players accompany Manny Pacquiao on his life’s journey – from his humble beginnings as a young boy in the streets of his hometown, General Santos, to his boxing peak as a seasoned world champion fighting opponents in arenas around the world. The game will feature Story, Historical, and Online PvP modes and will offer over 100 stages in four chapters at launch. Future updates will be released to offer additional chapters, along with new opponents and environments.
● In Story Mode, players will face opponents representing different social issues like poverty, bullying, crab mentality, as well as personal challenges such as self-doubt and fear of failure that Manny Pacquiao encountered throughout his life. As Pacquiao grows in the game, so too will his skills and abilities. His opponents will grow as well, providing the players with a continuous and compelling challenge.
● In Historical Mode, players will experience Pacquiao’s important career fights, including his major boxing world title bouts.
● In Online PvP Mode, players can go head-to-head with other players. PvP stands for Player versus Player, or Pacquiao versus Pacquiao, as players will be training their own versions of the legendary fighter to fight against other players’ versions of him.
