Filipinos love their PUBG MOBILE and the video game has responded by giving local fans a new Tagalog rap anthem on its soundtrack. Flict-G leads a star-studded cast of fellow rappers Smugglaz, Skant Vee, Hakob, and A$tro for “Bawal Sumuko,” considered to be PUBG MOBILE’s biggest collaboration of the year.
Familiar fan-favorite PUBG MOBILE characters are brought to life in the music video, which is also cut with Battle Royale scenes. Aesthetically, the creative direction features vibrant blues, pinks, and yellows in honor of the game’s 4th-anniversary celebration.
“Naniniwala ako sa kakayahan ng kabataan, at lahat ng Pilipino (I believe in the ability of the youth, and of all Filipinos, to surmount any obstacles),” said Flict-G. “Iyan ang mensahe ng pakikipaglaban at pag-asa na gusto ko ihayag (That’s the message of the fight and of hope that I want to share.)”
In the Philippines, to pay homage to their popularity amongst regional video game enthusiasts, PUBG MOBILE treated fans to a special surprise. The game released the first-ever Tagalog Voice Pack, featuring Moymoy Palaboy’s Rodfi during the launch of the 1.9 update.
