POPULAR mobile arena battler Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has unveiled a new logo.
Ditching the steel wings and shiny effects of its old logo, MLBB has gone for a more restrained design in its new incarnation.
Here's the old logo for comparison:
Its main brandmark is a stylized ‘M’ etched into a depiction of the ML battlefield. “The ‘M’ in the middle, in combination with the river on the battlefield, forms an abstract-syle heartbeat of an ECG,” said the brand in a Facebook post.
The lettermark has gone for a flatter rendering of its classic font with a few slight tweaks. The crystal shining out of the ‘O’ in the old logo has been replaced with a simple gold mark.
"As the symbol of the defense turret and the crystal in the base, the diamond-shaped dot in the letter 'O' reflects the dawn and hope in the worldview, along with the diversified story background," continued the brand.
This month, Mobile Legends will be rolling out the first phase of its Project NEXT initiative — a line-wide overhaul with the game that will include visual upgrades and hero tweaks.
In the comments section of the announcement thread, netizens are pointing out the similarity between the new ML logo and those of two other popular esports titles: Dota 2 and League of Legends.
As of posting, the game still features the old logo.
