Nintendo is gearing up Wii U promotions at the moment. After spotting some Wii U billboards in Japan, there’s more advertisements for the Wii U. Fast food chain Burger King will be partnering up with Nintendo, where the chain will offer Nintendo figurines with every Kids Meal. The first posters and ads have arrived at select Burger King joints around North America.
A few weeks ago it was rumored that Nintendo and Burger King would be partnering up to promote the Wii U, where Kids Meals would include a Nintendo figure, most likely one of the characters from New Super Mario Bros U. It was rumored that the promotion would kick off on October 25, which is looking quite plausible. Nintendo and Burger King had the same sort of deal back in 2006 to promote the original Wii.
The below ad was spotted by a Burger King employee (via NeoGaf), and is most likely one of the posters which will be displayed around the restaurant. It’s unknown whether Nintendo has partnered exclusively with Burger King for this sort of Wii U promotion, or whether there’s more to come. One thing is certain: there won’t be a similar deal with McDonald’s or any other fast food chain.
