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.
