The game, which adapts a 2.5-D format, is beat-‘em-up sports-adventure game features a thrilling, action-packed, and addictive adaptation of  Pacquiao’s life story.

It will be available and will be free to download on mobile platforms in early 2021.  

OMG President Mike Ochosa, one of the game’s co-developers, said idea started way back in 2017 when Pacquiao was set to fight Jeff Horn in Brisbane, Australia.

Back then, he was able to pitch his idea to Pacquiao, who eventually agreed.

“That’s when I sought Manny out to present the idea,” said Ochosa.
