Endemol Beyond’s “Legends of Gaming” franchise continues its march across the globe, landing in Brazil with a local version of the show launching today.
It marks the first time that Endemol Beyond has produced content locally in Brazil.
The “Legends of Gaming” digital series format debuted last fall in the U.K., and has since gone on to rack up more than 32 million views. A U.S. version hosted by Toby Turner launched earlier this month as the flagship series for Endemol Beyond USA’s new digital esports and gaming channel Smasher.
Hosted by YouTube star Felipe Castanhari (Nostalgia), “Legends of Gaming Brasil” will have 16 of the country’s top gamers, with a collective total of more than 25 million subscribers and 4 billion views on YouTube, competing to win R$50,000 and a trip to the U.K. The show will also feature gaming news, along with extra scenes and battles. New episodes will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday on the official Legends of Gaming Brasil channel through February 2016.
Endemol Beyond is currently developing local “Legends of Gaming” franchises for Germany, France and Asia.
