Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is a game that is sure full of surprises. Previously, no one would have ever thought that a Multiplayer Online Battleground Arena (MOBA) game could ever have affiliation with a classic sci-fi story like Star Wars. But as it turns out, the Force was strong with Moonton, as Disney has decided to come up with a collaboration with Moonton and create 5 Star Wars-themed skins for 5 very lucky Mobile Legends Heroes. What better day to announce such a legendary partnership than on Star Wars Day (the 4th of May) itself?
Who are the heroes who will get these skins?
Although still unofficially announced by Moonton, the poster in their Tweet suggests that Argus and Cyclops will both be getting skins, with the former rumored to have a “Darth Vader” skin and the latter a “Master Yoda” skin. Among other heroes, our April 2021 Leaks article also suggests that Eudora and Balmond are possible recipients of these special skins.
When and where will the skins be available?
The exact release date of these skins is still quite unclear, as MLBB still has many events lined up, like the 515 E-Party for almost the entirety of May, a King of Fighter (KOF) encore scheduled for late May and quite possibly a Summer Festival with Summer themed-skins as well.
As for the Where, Moonton has announced that due to licensing permissions, these Star Wars skins will only be available in the following regions: Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Brunei, Laos, East Timor, and Japan. News for other countries in the European Union, Americas, and others may be still in progress, so stay tuned for that.
Potential future events
If anything is telling of Moonton, is that there will definitely be a narrative and a cool event to accompany these skins and entice players to buy them. Star Wars fans will definitely be in the running to pick them up, but a Lucky Spin or Grand Collection kind of event may be just what the community needs to make this collaboration even more exciting.
