Japanese develop Cybird is looking to make a splash with its new football game BFB Champions: Global Kick-Off.

In keeping with the current trend for celebrity marketing, it's signed up Diego Maradona as the star of its publicity materials and as a in-game character.

Indeed, the teaser video features a recreation of Maradona’s ‘Goal of the Century’ against England in the 1986 World Cup.

In BFB Champions, the player will be able to manage a football club and compete against users from all over the world.

Players can pre-register now for extra rewards when the game launches later this summer.
