We recently talked about a new Fall Guys initiative called the ‘Battle of the Brands’. The idea was to encourage brands to donate money for a special cause, in exchange for exclusive Fall Guys’ skins. To win the Battle, brands had to raise money for the UK based charity SpecialEffect, which works to help gamers who have physical disabilities.
Initially, Aim Lab had announced that it was coming together with Ninja and G2 Esports to raise money for the same. The idea was to donate about $500,000. However, we saw some people not being happy with Ninja’s initiative, as they threatened to uninstall the game if Ninja got his Fall Guys skin.
However, it now appears that Ninja is all set to get his own skin in the game.
Fall Guys: Ninja and MrBeast to receive their in-game skin
As the competition progressed, people on Twitter could hardly come to terms with the confidence Ninja’s contingent had. Others rode the wave and offered to create designs that could be used for the skin(s).
It appeared as though a donation of $500,000 would prove to be enough to win the competition. As it turned out, Ninja posted the following last night. As you can see, Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson, who is known for his random million-dollar donations that he sometimes did, joined the contingent and they decided to double their bid!
The G2 Esports Twitter account also got into the act, and posted the following within an hour of Ninja’s tweet.
Fall Guys appreciated the effort, and thanked them for their last-minute attempt to increase the bid.
This was followed by a SpecialEffect ‘Thank you’ message which they posted on Twitter.
Soon, we saw the Fall Guys account confirm the announcement, as they formerly promised four themed skins to the four ‘brands’ in question.
Both Aim Lab and Ninja were incredibly happy with the news. The former posted the fallowing Paul Rudd clip to explain how they felt.
Ninja too posted on Twitter, and was thankful for the opportunity and to the people who joined him in the effort. You can see the clip below.Published 01 Sep 2020, 17:35 IST
