Japan’s Micky D’s Offering Limited 3DS Downloads
15 Feb, 2012
The many McDonald’s franchises located in Japan – where one can get the Juicy Chicken Akatougarashi and the very American sounding Mega Mac (four patties!) – will be offering DLC vouchers for the Nintendo 3DS’ Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3. The month-long promotion will have a new code for a downloadable item each week. Also being made available is a free original DS game: McDonald’s Slime Ship Battle DX, which brings up all sorts of uncomfortable memories about Sneak King here in the States. Completing the mini-game will spawn some burger and soft drink vouchers for the player, beginning the whole process anew.
Good business synergy, or doomed gimmick? What’s the EG verdict? Comment with your thoughts below!
