Japanese game developer CYBIRD Co., Ltd. announced on June 1 that there were over 70,000 signups for its new football game BFB Champions: Global Kick-Off after just two weeks.

The game is a sequel to the Japanese smash-hit soccer game, BFB 2016, and the campaign will reward users with in-game items. The more users who sign up, the more items users will receive when the game launches later this year.


Thanks to the 70,000 signups so far, new players will receive the following items:


l  My Gold Scout Tickets x 5 (which can be used to collect players for your squad)

l  My Stamina Drink x 3 (which can be used to play more matches)

And there’s still time to sign up and unlock even more bonus items in the game – see below for more information.

The reward tier campaign will see a series of free gifts unlocked for EVERY user when the game is launched later this year. The exact number and type of gifts will depend on the total number of signups across Twitter, Facebook, and the official website.
