If you have read my previous post about Firefall in China (link), you would have known that Nicholas Anelka is now the official spokesperson for Firefall in the country. Putting the new idol of Chinese football into immediate good use, Red 5 Studios and The9 (Red 5’s main investor and publisher) is holding a BIG media conference to officially reveal Firefall in the Mainland.
The media bonanza will be taking place on 16th February at the Shanghai Sculpture Space, with Firefall’s very own character statues (link) on display of course. As mentioned earlier, Nicholas Anelka nabbed a marketing fee of USD 5 million over a period of 2 years for his stint as Firefall’s spokesperson. His annual wage as a football player, as estimated by the French media, stands at 10.6 million Euros.
