As you may know, Burger King and Nintendo are teaming up to promote the new Wii U console. Anyone who purchases a Kids Meal will get a free Nintendo toy, and the first of such toys have been spotted in the wild. So far the available toys include a Mario figure and a green Koopa shell. More toys will be available later on, but it seems like it’s only general Nintendo figures, and nothing Wii U specific. The Wii U promotion officially kicks off on October 25, but apparently, some stores are already offering the toys, as you can see below:
Nintendo and Burger King teamed up for a Wii U promotion that offers free toys across North America, the same deal the two companies had with the original Wii back in 2006. The promotion is expected to run until the Wii U launch on November 18, 2012.
