[English website] China online gaming company, The9, threw a fancy media party to celebrate the announcement of Firefall China last week. The9 is also the majority shareholder of Firefall’s developer, Red 5 Studios. With The9 apparently swimming in cash after its meteoric revival since early last year, this media event oozed style and class, with spokesperson Nicholas Anelka gracing the stage as well.
If you have not read my previous posts, footballer Nicholas Anelka moved to China club Shanghai Shenhua in January, which is owned by The8’s big boss (seldom pictured at any events as usual). In the video above, the little girl who presented the gift to Anelka is the boss’ daughter. From what I read, Firefall will only be launching in China next year, 2013… Visit the official Firefall website above to join in the fun!
