Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Zany Video Game Lives Up To His Name

All footballers aspire to see their likeness in the FIFA videogame. The best aspire to be on the cover of FIFA. The Zlatan aspires to make his own damn game. 

Zlatan Legends, developed by Isbit Games, was released Thursday on the Apple App Store worldwide to critical acclaim — well, acclaim. Created in the likeness of legendary Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the game has you kick a ball around a course as fast as you can. 

Essentially it’s a soccer/racing game/endless runner hybrid with an intergalactic space milieu. If that’s not Zlatan, I don’t know what is. 

Twitter Goes Nuts Over Zlatan Ibrahimovic Tweet In Manchester United Uniform

“Fuck off”

That’s the first response — from a Manchester United fan — on Twitter to Zlatan Ibrahimovic tweeting on Friday a photo of himself holding the Europa League champion’s medal after Manchester United beat Ajax in the final in Stockholm in May. 

Ibrahimovic is receiving an awful lot of hate from fans of the team he scored 28 goals for last season before going down with a season-ending injury in April. His tweet was innocuous enough, with a picture and the words “Nr 33” in reference to his 33 trophies he’s won throughout his career.  

Zlatan's New Statue Looks Like A Video Game Boss

Picture it: you're playing some kind of first person video game. You're almost done. The last level is situated in an industrial complex, but you're not sure what kind. The end of the level is through a big garage door. The final boss lies in wait. This is it. This is the moment. You push the button to open the door. A whooshing sound, then the door begins to creak open. Steam pours out of the opening. You strain your eyes to get a glimpse of what you're about to face. Finally, it comes into focus.
