Celcom Game Hero; the biggest mobile game tournament in Malaysia with a prize pool of RM1,000,000.

When we think of eSports, chances are that you’re thinking of tournaments surrounding games like DotA 2, League of Legends, CS:GO, or other familiar games. But what about mobile games?

You know, the games that you play on your own smartphone. Well, it looks like there will be a big change in the local eSports scene as Celcom launches the Celcom Game Hero, the biggest mobile game tournament in Malaysia.


Celcom Game Hero Launch

Today, Celcom launched the all-new Celcom Game Hero, the biggest mobile game tournament in Malaysia where everyone can be a hero and win cash prizes. It will be organized by Celcom Axiata, in collaboration with Techninier, and it begins with a tournament on ‘Sky Invasion 3D’.

Sky Invasion 3D is a game made by Techninier and it’s an arcade-based shoot ‘em up mobile game, similar to the likes of Ikaruga. You use an aircraft to shoot down enemies and obstacles as you progress through the stage vertically, with occasional boss battles occurring from time to time. By today’s standard of gaming, this game is suitable for both casual and hardcore gamers as it’s quite easy to pick up and it really tests your skills when it comes to obtaining the highest score possible.

The Celcom Game Hero launch event was graced by the presence of YB Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak, Minister of Communication and Multimedia, and Norman H’ng, Advisor of Content to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.

As customers today love playing games on their mobile phone, there is a high demand for the best seamless network for a gaming experience without any interruptions. With customer experience as Celcom’s top priority, both casual and expert mobile gamers can look forward to many more exciting initiatives that will deliver the best mobile-gaming experience.

The Celcom Game Hero is open to everyone as long as you are a Celcom customer with an Android or iOS smartphone. Click here to join the tournament. There is a total prize pool of RM1 million, with mobile gamers eligible to win anywhere from RM1,000 to RM250,000 in cash. Along the way, participants can obtain daily war chests, where you can win free Celcom Xpax reload cards.


Pokdepinion: Celcom is also gearing towards mobile gaming and plan to make it a viable platform for eSports. They have the support of the Malaysian government so I hope that this is a step towards a good direction for the local gaming industry.
