HOLLYWOOD — A real-life smackdown meets a virtual smackdown, as video game magazine IGN brought together the worlds of the highly-anticipated Mortal Kombat 11 game and some World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstars.
Wrestling champs and gamers grappled it out on the control pads of the iconic video game, which dropped on Tuesday.
From the signs to picture booths, the crowd and commentators, IGN has turned video game releases into major Esports events.
For IGN’s latest mega event, we not only got to sit in and not only feel the excitement but meet some of the Pinoys that up power up the video game empire.
While IGN’s vice president of intergrated marketing Rich Hernandez runs these events, Pinay host Sydnee Goodman has been one of the faces of IGN’s broadcasts.
