That former Man Utd winger Cristiano Ronaldo now has his own mobile game is not really a surprise. That it isn't a football title possible is.
The game in question is called Ronaldo & Hugo: Superstar Skaters. Hugo, for those who don't know, is Hugo the Troll. He, apparently, is the creation of Danish company Hugo Games and has starred in a number of games and TV shows that we've never heard of.
Apparently his most recent mobile outings have been downloaded over 25m times.
In this new game he and Ronaldo, for reasons that we cannot discern, are skateboarding and fleeing from the forever chasing Paparazzi Pete”. He may or may not be another supposedly famous character we've never heard of. At this point we don't really know what to think.
We have no doubt that Hugo the Troll has the potential to become the world's greatest gaming character – especially with Cristiano Ronaldo at his side,” the seemingly very ambitious CEO of Hugo Games Henrik Klle said.
Cristiano is an international icon, with personality and strength, beloved all over the globe. We have already enjoyed Cristiano's fantastic personality through our collaboration. In short: It has been a great pleasure to work with Cristiano and his team on Ronaldo & Hugo: Superstar Skaters.
We have no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo's personal qualities, combined with his strong connection to his fans and his 200 million followers on social media is a perfect match with our own world famous character, Hugo the Troll. We expect that together, they will make a significant impact on the mobile gaming world in years to come.”
