Manny Pacquiao inspired MLBB hero Paquito released

Moonton has officially added Paquito to the hero pool. The hero inspired by legendary Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is available for play as part of the latest update.

This stemmed from a partnership between Pacquiao and Moonton in which the boxer became an ambassador for the game in the Philippines.

“Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has a lot in common with boxing. Like boxing it requires skill, determination, physical effort, and most importantly mental toughness,” William Mei, Marketing Manager of MLBB in the Philippines said in the original announcement. “You can’t beat your opponent just by being strong, you have to also be smart.”

“It was easy for me to say yes when Moonton approached me to be their Philippine Ambassador.” said Pacquiao. “I already know of Mobile Legends even before they got in touch because my son, Jimuel, plays the game on his phone and regularly streams with friends. So why not be a part of what my son loves?” he shares.

If you’re interested in what the new hero brings to the table, below are his abilities.
