YouTube along with partners MyGameOn and IGN Southeast Asia has announced new dates for Pesta Game – Malaysia’s 1st virtual ‘Hari Sukan’, powered by Samsung Galaxy A52 | A72. The event, a first time in Malaysia, will see YouTube Creators compete against each other to gain victory for their respective ‘rumah sukan’ on March 27th (Saturday) and 28th (Sunday). The event was initially rescheduled to ensure the health and safety of creators, partners and everyone involved during the pandemic.
Ben Jern, Head of YouTube Malaysia said, “We are happy that Pesta Game has been given an extra life to resume. We have always envisioned it as a way for all of us to safely get together from our own homes, and what better way to do so than by tuning into the variety of gaming live streams featuring some of Malaysia’s favourite Creators on YouTube across mobile devices, desktops and connected TVs. The games must go on!”
Pesta Game will be streamed live in Bahasa Malaysia concurrently across eight of Malaysia’s biggest YouTube channels – another first! – from Media Prima’s TV3, TV9, Drama Sangat and Hot TV channels, to individual channels of creators participating in the games: popular variety show trio Cikidot, lifestyle vlogger Dumpling Soda, gadget expert Fuzz Channel and mukbang foodie Isaac Osman. The 2-day event will not only offer action-packed streams to be watched – viewers also stand a chance to join their favorite creators in-game LIVE and win amazing prizes from Samsung and other exclusive promos.
“We are excited that Pesta Game is back on! As new forms of entertainment develop, audiences adopt new formats to be entertained. And with the latest arrival of the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72, we aim to make gaming experience accessible and hope that this event can bring e-sports closer to more consumers in Malaysia.” said KM Liew, Head of IT & Mobile Business of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
So be sure to join in the Pesta Game 2021 happening on 27-28th March and support your favourite local YouTube Creators.
