To promote the launch of Kirby Mass Attack this month, Nintendo is taking demos of the game across America. But how to transport Kirby and feed players at the same time? With Kirby Snack Attack Trucks, of course.
Nintendo's plan is to travel the country — realistically three cities — with frozen fruit snacks and DS consoles for players to enjoy. Here's the schedule:
Sept. 14: Rockefeller Plaza, New York City
Sept. 14-15: San Francisco Bay Area
Sept. 16-18: Upper Kirby neighborhood, Houston
Will you be heading out to catch one of these fruit treats? Let us know.
Nintendo Marks Launch of Kirby Mass Attack Game with Customized Kirby Snack Attack Trucks
REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- One of the most unique characters in the world of video games is about to give hungry fans a fun way to attack snack time. To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Kirby™ Mass Attack video game for the Nintendo DS™ family of hand-held systems, Nintendo is deploying customized Kirby Snack Attack Trucks to deliver frozen fruit treats to consumers and fans in select U.S. cities. While enjoying these tasty snacks, participants can enjoy hands-on demos of Kirby Mass Attack, in which gobbling up fruit allows players to accumulate a mass of up to 10 Kirbys at a time. The week before the game’s Sept. 19 launch, the trucks will be making stops near New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza, the San Francisco Bay Area and the aptly named Upper Kirby neighborhood of Houston.
In Kirby Mass Attack, players join the iconic pink hero for a wild new adventure to save planet Popstar from darkness. Using the intuitive touch-screen controls of the Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi™ or Nintendo DSi XL™, players can fling, dash around or gather as many as 10 Kirbys simultaneously. As players use their mob of Kirbys to bash through obstacles and defeat various enemies, players can even collect medals from numerous stages across five colorful, side-scrolling worlds to unlock fun extras and mini-games.
