Last month the Philippines arm of KFC grabbed the headlines (well, our headlines at least) when it created its own KFC restaurant in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and invited its Twitter followers to visit its island, with the hope of finding Colonel Sanders and getting a voucher code for free chicken in real life.
While Nintendo obviously had nothing to do with this and the whole thing was just a marketing ploy conjured up by KFC, it’s far from the first time video games have been associated with food brands. In fact, ever since the very early days of home console gaming – we’re talking the Atari 2600 here – there have been games containing product placement for snacks. Some of these are subtle, others have entire games built around them. Here are some of our favourites.
This list is by no means complete: there are plenty of other examples. Honourable mentions go to Death Stranding and its infamous Monster Energy consumables, Pepsiman on the PlayStation, Fight Night Round 3 (which lets you unlock the terrifying Burger King mascot to accompany you to the ring) and the strange Space Invader-style Commodore 64 game Weetabix Versus the Titchies. Two games we haven’t forgotten, though, are the Chester Cheetah games for the SNES and Mega Drive, partly because even though they star the Cheetos mascot, they don’t actually mention Cheetos at any point.
That said: sit back, grab an ice cold refreshing Irn Bru™, and enjoy.
Zool - Chupa Chups
There are two examples of snack food product placement in games that many people cite all the time, so let’s start with those. Probably the most commonly mentioned (especially in Europe) is Zool, the fast-paced platformer starring a ninja from the Nth Dimension which was originally released on the Amiga before coming to a bunch of other systems including the SNES and Mega Drive.
The first world in Zool has a candy theme, and the stage is absolutely packed with cakes, candy games, gingerbread and chocolate as far as the eye can see. Deciding to turn this into a marketing opportunity, publisher Gremlin Graphics arranged a deal with Spanish lollipop company Chupa Chups and slapped its lollies and logo all over the stage,
If you owned Zool on the SNES and are a bit confused about all this, you probably lived in North America. The Chupa Chups sponsorship was removed entirely from NTSC versions of the game, whereas the European PAL SNES version still has its big garish logos proudly beaming out at you.
James Pond 2: Codename Robocod - Penguin
The other instance of snack sponsorship that regularly gets brought up is the presence of Penguin biscuits in Millennium Interactive’s much-loved platformer James Pond 2: Codename Robocod, which starred everyone’s favourite piscine protagonist as he attempts to rescue Santa Claus from the evil Dr Maybe.
For those not familiar with Penguins, they’re a brand of chocolate biscuit that have been a part of British tea-drinking culture since they were first produced in the early 1930s. For a certain generation of Brit the marketing slogan “p-p-pick up a Penguin” is widely recognised, even though most people don’t actually get what that means. In fact, most don’t know why they’re called Penguins in the first place.
Regardless, because Robocod involves finding penguins at various points, large Penguin biscuit wrappers can be found in certain stages in 90s versions of the game (they were removed for the GBA, PlayStation and DS versions released in the 2000s). It’s a pretty tenuous link, but it’s reported that Penguins outsold Kit-Kats in the UK for the first time after Robocod launched. We’re not sure we believe that, mind.
Bubba ‘n’ Stix - Bubbilicious
If you live in North America and are starting to feel a bit left out, here’s one for you. Bubba ‘n’ Stix is a puzzle-platformer that was developed by Core Design. Although Core also published the game in most regions, when it came to the Mega Drive version (or Genesis, if you will) Tengen took over publishing duties in America.
Tengen also negotiated a sponsorship deal with Bubbilicious bubble gum, with a big sticker on the cover telling people they could win a Sega CD console if they bought special packs of Bubbilicious and entered the competition on the wrapper. To make sure the deal went both ways, the game’s bonus stage included large packs of Bubbilicious which could be collected for bonus points.
If you’re sitting in the UK and scratching your head at all this, that’s because none of this happened in Europe. There was no Bibbilicious tie-in in PAL regions, and the Bubbilicious collectibles were nowhere to be found in the bonus stages. It wasn’t any great loss, though, so don’t worry.
Superfrog - Lucozade
This Team17 platformer came to the Amiga in 1993 and told the story of a handsome young prince who’s turned into a frog by a witch, who then kidnaps his girlfriend for good measure. As he sits by the side of the river feeling sorry for himself the frog spots a bottle of (famed UK energy drink) Lucozade floating downstream, so he picks it up and takes a drink and, lo and behold, becomes the heroic Superfrog.
Lucozade doesn’t just feature in the intro sequence: bottles of the stuff can be found dotted around each of the game’s levels and will restore Superfrog’s health when he picks it up. Which makes sense, given that back in the day Lucozade was traditionally what you were supposed to bring as a gift when you were visiting sick people in hospital.
A number of years later Lucozade teamed up with another British gaming icon, and this time it was a biggie: a TV ad campaign saw Lara Croft drinking the stuff, and the drink was renamed Larazade for a limited time. It never actually appeared in any Tomb Raider games, though, which is why we’re going with Superfrog instead.
Pushover - Quavers
It’s becoming pretty clear by now that Britain in the early ‘90s seemingly had some sort of obsession with putting snacks in video games, and Ocean Software’s puzzle game Pushover didn’t really do anything to change that. This time the brand in question was Quavers, the floaty crisp snack that tasted like cheesy air, and also included Quavers’ then mascot Colin Curly.
Colin’s lost his packets of Quavers down a giant anthill so it’s up to a soldier ant called G. I. Ant (hah) to enter said anthill and retrieve said curly potato puffs, which he did by knocking over a bunch of dominos in what’s actually a fiendishly difficult puzzler.
After a stint on the Amiga, Pushover came to the SNES with all the Quavers branding removed. Colin Curly, meanwhile, would go on to star in another Amiga game called One Step Beyond, which was also packed with Quavers branding. Hardly anyone seems to eat Quavers these days, and we’re putting that directly down to the lack of an HD remaster of Pushover.
Cool Spot - 7 Up
Here’s one that’s subtle (at least until you reach its bonus stage). Cool Spot is an entertaining platform game starring – get ready for this – the red dot on the 7 Up logo. Yes, slap a pair of sunglasses and some arms and legs on that dot and you have one of the funkiest mascots in town. Or something.
For the most part, Cool Spot is a fairly innocuous platformer: you have to explore the game’s numerous stages in search of your fellow Spot pals, who’ve been imprisoned in cages, presumably due to their comparative lack of coolness. It isn’t until you reach the bonus stage – where you’re trapped in a giant 7 Up bottle and have to bounce off bubbles to reach the top while spelling out its marketing slogan UNCOLA – that the tie-in reveals its true form.
The European versions of the game had all the 7 Up branding removed (starting to see a theme here?), mainly because 7 Up’s mascot in Europe was another character called Fido Dido and it was decided not to confuse things. In the bonus stages, instead of UNCOLA you had to spell out VIRGIN. Stop laughing, that’s who published it.
M.C. Kids - McDonalds
If you thought McDonald's wasn't going to try to get involved in this useful new way to market directly to children, we admire your naïvety, but no. M. C. Kids (known as the slightly less subtle McDonaldland in Europe) was a serviceable platformer that contained more big M's than Mario's hatstand.
Ronald McDonald's magic bag has been stolen, so it's up to two plucky young tykes called Mick and Mack to enter McDonaldland and try to get it back. Along the way they encounter other characters from the McDonald’s Cinematic Universe™ including Grimace, Birdie and the notorious Hamburglar (who’s the one responsible for stealing the bag in the first place).
Mick and Mack returned in Global Gladiators, an environmentalist Mega Drive game in which they had to use a water gun to clear up slime and various other types of toxic gunk in order to clean the world up. While collecting more golden arches, obviously.
Chase the Chuck Wagon - Purina
If you think snack tie-ins were mainly a ‘90s phenomenon, you’re in for a surprise: in the early ‘80s the humble Atari 2600 had its fair share of sponsored games too. These included strange collect ‘em up Kool-Aid Man and the extremely rare Pepsi Invaders, a Space Invaders clone created by Coca-Cola to be handed out at its 1983 sales convention.
The oddest example of the Atari 2600 era, though, is possibly Chase the Chuck Wagon. If you were an American citizen in the ‘70s and ‘80s you were probably aware of a TV commercial for Purina dog food in which a dog chases a little chuckwagon (it was referenced at the start of This Is Spinal Tap as well, and Family Guy spoofed it at one point because of course it did).
Purina commissioned game publisher Spectravision to make a game based on this commercial, and it was programmed in a mere three days, so yes, it was awful. It was a mail order game, and could only be bought if you sent in proof of purchase labels for Purina dog food products. Which sort of defeats the purpose of the game if people are already buying the stuff.
Biker Mice from Mars - Snickers
The Biker Mice From Mars game is something of a hidden gem on the SNES: it’s an isometric racing game developed by Konami and it’s packed with power-ups and all that good stuff. It’s also notorious, however, for being the only game in this list that’s a TV show tie-in with a snack tie-in included. We believe the phrase is “yo dawg, we heard you liked tie-ins”, or at least it would be if it was 2008.
In fact, not only did the Biker Mice game have a snack sponsorship – in just one region, naturally – it was also a rare case of a sponsorship that actually affected the gameplay. The PAL version of the game had Snickers branding slapped all over it, but you could also pick up a Snickers power-up which was by far the most powerful in the game: it makes you invincible, speeds you up and makes fireworks appear.
In keeping with the general theme of this article, the North American version of the game didn’t have any Snickers sponsorship. This meant that it also didn’t have the power-up, however, making it a slightly harder game as a result. Oh Snickers, you rascals.
Kaettekita Mario Bros. - Nagatanien
Finally, it may shock you to learn that not even our good pal Mario has been able to resist the clutches of snack sponsorship in the past. The culprit in question was Kaettekita Mario Bros., an enhanced port of Mario Bros. for the Famicom Disk System that made some notable improvements including new levels and the ability to change direction in mid-air (which, if you’ve played Mario Bros, you’ll know is a literal game-changer).
However, it also added advertisements in between some of the levels. Some of these ads were for other Nintendo games, most notably Super Mario Bros. 3 (which had just been released on the Famicom a month earlier). Others, however, were for food products created by Nagatanien, a Japanese company who specialised in premixed and instant food (miso soup mix, sushi toppings and the like).
What’s more, it included a special Nagatanien World mode, which adds a slot machine when you get Game Over which gives you the chance to continue playing. If players scored 100,000 or 200,000 points in this mode, they’d also be given a promotional code that they could mail in to Nintendo to try to win a copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 or some playing cards. We’re not angry at you, Mario; we’re just disappointed.
Have these blatant snack sponsorships left you feeling a little peckish? Let us know which other brand deals you've noticed in games with a comment below...
What about literally any NBA game? They are littered with paid promotions
Nowadays they skip over the sponsorships and just straight up make their own games, like m&m kart racing
My uncle owned a game on Xbox 360 where you were the Burger King and you ran around giving people burgers. If I remember correctly BK was giving away copies as a promo.
I think Tommy Hilfiger was all over 1080 Snowboarding if I remember correctly. It was during a time when that brand was a lot more prominent too.
I have to say this before anyone else can
Guitar Hero 3 was littered with ads, including 7 gum.
I actually owned 4 of these games, Zool, McDonaldland, Cool Spot and Pushover. Didn't know about Cool Spot being the 7Up spot though, probably because I was in the UK.
I think most sport games are exempt because they feature the real life sponsors of such sports, whether it's NBA, Fifa or whatever.
McDonaldland though was such a shameless self-promotion I'm embarrassed to admit I even had it. To be fair, I didn't buy the games when I was a kid so... I'm free from blame there.
Aw! Was hoping to see Clumsy Colin Action Biker in here (KP Skips). Loved that game on the C64! Great article, though!
@Blooper987 I was going to mention M&M Racing but you got there first. Pepsiman was already there though at the beginning as an 'honourable mention'.
@mjharper how it feels to chew 7 gum
No mention of McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure. A great platformer by Treasure.
A McDonald's game advertising McDonald's? Who'da thunk it?
@LavaTwilight I completely skipped the beginning😭😂
It’s still Marathon to me and I’ll not hear otherwise.
What about Mr Winpy? Retro game and retro fast food!
Yup Treasures McDonald’s game is trippy and generally solid platformer. It has a ton of creative enemies and isn’t heavily tied to the license.
Strangely I love them all. Such cool games!
@RustedHero Ah, Tommy Hilfiger, that well-known snack
Gotta love how the shape and font of the dialog box, and even the wording of the text itself, in the McDonald's game is a blatant copy of Super Mario Bros. 3's "The king has been transformed! Please find the magic wand so we can change him back!"
I also appreciated the article's addition of a trademark next to "McDonald's Cinematic Universe." This was a fun read.
A few more games to nominate for this list:
The Chester Cheetah SNES games "Too Cool To Fool" & "Wild, Wild Quest"
The NES game "Avoid the Noid"
@Apportal that’s how sports work IRL. It isn’t as blatant if it’s a accurate portrayal.
I mean even jim sterling defends it in sports games, and he’s the most anti capitalistic game journalist I know.
@koekiemonster You would probably lose your mind over a Chunky Chips Ahoy tie-in game, eh, Cookie Monster?
Every time I play the original super monkey ball games I feel smacked over the head by all the Dole logos😂
Nintendo is still at it with Mario kart 8 and the free Mercedes-Benz DLC (or already included in MK8 Deluxe.
Being someone from the US, I genuinely had no idea what Lucozade was until I bought Superfrog from GOG years ago. The game is no longer sold there, but it's interesting being someone who just saw this game on GOG during a sale, thought "this looks cute" and bought it. Fun platformer though.
I had a Mega Drive game that I think was called Global Champions. It was HEAVILY McDonalds themed.
It was a run n gun sort of platformer where you collected McDonalds M’s and shot gloopy creatures. At the end of each level Ronald McDonald would be there waving a flag.
The best part was a mini game where you had to throw garbage in the correct recycling bin. That’s not a joke, I used to play that mini game more than the actual game.
Edit: Global Gladiators, didn’t see that part of the article.
No love for Tonic Trouble?
I loved it as a kid, and there are Crunch cereal dispensers that transform you from Ed to Super Ed.
The ones I am most familiar with, either by playing or by Games Done Quick events:
Sneak King, Pocket Bike Racer, Big Bumpin' on 360 (Burger King)
PepsiMan on PS1
Chex Quest on PC
Doritos Crash Course 1 & 2, Harms Way, and Dash of Destruction on 360
Darkened Skye (Skittles) on Gamecube
World Gone Sour (Sour Patch Kids) on 360
Kool-Aid Man (Intellivision)
"Along the way they encounter other characters from the McDonald’s Cinematic Universe™..."
Now I want a Ronald McDonald film just so it can have a solo spin-off movie called "Grimace".
Super Monkey Ball - Dole Bananas
Where's the return of pepsiman!?
@Blooper987 I see that you're a man of culture.
You forgot about AVOID THE NOID???? The Dominos Pizza mascot in the 80s who had his own game??? How DARE you!
Damn, I'm hungry now.
I didn't see this mentioned anywhere else: Chibi Robo! Zip Lash. You can collect real brands of candies and snacks at the request of a handful of characters. Once you provide a certain snack they crave, they go on about how delicious it is. I actually thought this was really cute. You collect candy from different countries, so it wasn't like it was all stuff I could buy locally. It reminded me of the Duracell battery from Pikmin 2. It's product placement, but it doesn't feel so blatant.
@Glitchling78 Global Gladiators, I had it too. Great soundtrack. It's mentioned in the article in the M. C. Kids section, although the article incorrectly states that you use water pistols.
Remember playing some of these, especially Zool. But also Bubba'n'Stix and Cool Spot. Don't remember the ads which is a good sign in my book as it doesn't grab me. I think I was a bit too young too even recognise the brand. Although I like Chuppa Chups
@RainbowGazelle They are water pistols though! Sure, they don't fire water, but even so 😉
I am so glad you mentioned Pushover. I loved that game as a kid. I think it was the first puzzle game I ever played.
@Fandabidozi Yep, and Starburst will always be Opal Fruits.
@scully1888 What DO they fire? I always wondered that as a kid. What is that orange stuff...?
Hey now, the Chupa Chups logo was designed by Salvador Dali. Maybe Zool was just trying to act as a gateway to get kids into surrealist art.
most of them were half decent games, now we get the loot box and money grabs give me a snickers logo anyday
@RainbowGazelle oops, missed that in my sleepiness! It was a strange game but I liked it, got it in a swap with a friend who wanted my copy of Space Harrier 2 which I hated.
I was so sure Super Monkey Ball would be on here for literally every banana having the Dole logo on it.
Oh Push-Over. I played that game a ton on SNES. That along with Cool Spot and that Chester Cheetah game.
Good old Zool, great game..
Fun fact about Cool Spot : another game named "FIDO DIDO" was ready to ship on Megadrive/Genesis when suddenly 7up decided to change its mascot and canceled the game.
The Fido Dido game was never officially released but pirate copies got in the market immediatly. So many that people sometimes think it was really released. You can find those copies easily on ebay.
Yo Noid! Yo Noid!
@Glitchling78 Global Gladiators
How can we forget Global Gladiators, a game heavily sponsored by McDonald's but ironically contained a strong environmentalist message.
I forgot about Cool Spot. 90s marketing was so fun....
Also, here's a classic you guys forgot. Anyone remember Yo, Noid! The Domino's Pizza mascot platformer on NES?
@LavaTwilight Didn't own the McD game, but I played it and I thought it was a really good game actually. So don't feel ashamed.
I remember getting TMNT the Arcade game for NES when I was a kid. It was heavily sponsored by Pizza Hut. It came with a coupon for a free personal pan pizza and had adds strategically placed in the background sprites. It worked, as I begged my parents to order pizza upon opening up the game and finding the coupon.
I'd love a port of Pushover, well received on the Amiga but being on the Amiga it's not so well known now. Had a great original concept for a puzzler too.
@RainbowGazelle The manual just calls them "goo-shooters" but doesn't reveal what the goo actually is.
Chupa Chups. Where have all these great games gone and why are they not on the Switch.
My short list....
James Pond 2
Woah woah woah... you totally left out Chibi Robo zip lash and some of the collectible snacks in there, such as Utz Potato Chips!!
Might as well mention Yo Noid while we’re at it! Pizza can be a snack right?? It can certainly be a salad!
:: runs away to avoid potential negative comments ::
EDIT: :: runs back :: ok, looks like @Andy_Witmyer and @Losermagnet already have this covered.
I remember the kool-aide man making an appearance in the Atari 2600 game Journey. Not sure if that was the name. It was about the band making its way back to their tour bus. It was the most memorable part of the game for me as a kid. Maybe it wasn’t him but it sure looked like him back in the day.
Where those sweets all from the same brand? I would think, if you make a sponsorship deal with a brand, you couldn't make another deal with a similar brand. 🤔
Or am I wrong?
@zool James Pond is on the switch actually. I have it.
Surprised it wasn't mentioned in the article actually.
Not a snack but basically just as low on nutrients: cup noodles in ffxv, don't know if it made the cut into the lite version, but that product placement side quest was a corporate wet dream.
@dok5555555 I have it on n the Switch as well. But not James Pond 2.
I always remember Splinter Cell Chaos Theory had some egregiously in-your-face product placement of Wrigley’s AirWaves chewing gum.
One of the cut-scenes begins with a close up of the packaging taking up the entire screen so the branding was clear to see. Sam Fisher then pops one into his mouth to chew. I found it so obnoxiously in-your-face and utterly incongruous with what was going on in the story. I almost suspect the development team tried to make it as awful as possible in the hopes it wouldn’t be used...
I recall Wave Race: Blue Storm having Dr Pepper signage around the courses.
@MrBlacky I want to say they aren't but I haven't researched it myself. As @ChromaticDracula mentioned, there's Utz brand potato chips as well as japanese panda crackers (the brand name escapes me). While it's possible they're the same parent company, I think it'd be unlikely.
Side note - this game was the first time I'd ever heard of Utz brand potato chips. Now I see them everywhere.
Edit: I googled it, and evidently it was partially inspired by both Chibi Robo's small size and that he travels across the world in the game:
I remember the 7 Up one. I thought it was neat looking myself.
Wave Race Blue Storm and McDonald.
I had the demo version of Zool 2 on PC back in the day. I quite liked it.
The Sims 1 & 2 had some cross-promotion. The Sims 1 had free Pepsi/McDonald's items while The Sims 2 promoted EA's games, and they even had two expansions based on real-world brands (H&M and IKEA). I don't mind the cross-promotion here, but the IKEA pack was laughably lacking in content.
I also had two McDonald's CD-ROMs (still do) that I recall were $5 each with any purchase. They were quite content rich and very good value, serving as cute little edutainment games. From memory, they were called Adventures Through McDonaldland and Mission to McDonaldland. I believe they contained Australia/New Zealand specific info, so I can only assume that these were exclusive to us. I could swear that the accents were Australian as well, though it's been years since I had last played them.
I introduced my brother to Chex Quest when he was a wee lad (and he loved it), as I refused to let him play games that weren't age appropriate. I don't recall Chex being available in Australia, but about 15 or so years ago, Coco Pops Chex entered the market and has been a mainstay ever since. I think original Chex was briefly available at some point after the success of Coco Pops Chex, but original Chex was quickly discontinued.
It's like a who's who of Amiga Classics.
And I loved every one of them.
Wow - so many Amiga flashbacks. The scary thing is, quite a few of these games are actually good. Pushover was brutally hard, IIRC - and that was just the demo that I played. I know most of these - but it’s a very long time since I thought about Global Gladiators. I seem to remember that being pretty cool. Almost had a Splatoon vibe!
I really am surprised that Mario Kart 8 Mercedes stuff isn't included on this list honestly.
...though I guess Mercedes isn't really a snack now is it?
@Yosher Depends, I know a guy that makes a mean tailpipe soup.
Plants vs zombies garden warfare had those insane looking Chester cheetah plants.
Also since when is Purina snack food. The writer of this been snacking on dog food since the 2600 days?
Huh? Biker Mice from MARS were promoting SNICKERS?
What's next.... Ninja Turtles advertise Burger King?
Here on the Western side of the Pond, "Cool Spot" is usually the example that first comes to mind.
@frogopus Pizza is a legitimate meal, not a snack food. It also doesn't generally have as bad of a nutritional reputation as McDonald's does.
Omg I also forgot San Francisco Rush 2 and Mountain Dew!!
Any platformer wanting to gain my attention has to compete with my memories of these. Colorful, vibrant and fun.
Nintendo Life the game must be on the way then.
I still really like COOL SPOT. The jumping and levels were great.
Yo! Noid feels left out.
I love articles like this! And the nostalgia is strong.
I came for Zool; I stayed for the Amiga.
7-Up had another video game on the NES. It was called Spot the Videogame and it was basically animated checkers that you could play with several people. It was pretty fun.
I've never played it, but there was one involving Domino's Mascot The Noid.
Anyway, fun read.
Oh and you could drink either pepsi or coke in Maniac Mansion...or use it to help get someplace.
I could see PlatinumGames making a pretty sick Biker Mice from Mars game.
@WhiteTrashGuy me too. I loved that game as a kid. The platforming was fun and the sound effects and music were great too. Hearing “Wipeout“ always makes me think of the ending.
My nephew from Peru loves Biker Mice from Mars. I had never heard of it.
@Tempestryke Spot: The Video Game was both on NES & GB. I played it a lot (and you are right, the NES version supports up to four players). It is based on a game called Ataxx, a fun Reversi variant. The NES version had excellent animations for Spot when you moved (like moonwalking and pole vaulting), which could also be disabled.
I loved in the bonus stages hitting the bubbles perfectly to keep you flipping I'm the air. I am pretty sure a bunch of Shiny developers worked on it. And I think Tommy Tallarico did the music.
@dok5555555 I'm guessing the Switch version of Robocod doesn't have the Penguin biscuits in it?
The Snickers thing in Biker Mice was hilarious. Snickers ads in sewers! "Food" stat that you improved by buying Snickers upgrades! (in American version it was Armor). The winning racer advertising Snickers after every race! Nothing better to advertise to kids with than a weird looking mad scientist after all.
Loved Zool on my Acorn 4000, really wish they would re-master it
TMNT 2 on NES has Pizza Hut logos slapped everywhere.
M.C. Kids on the NES is awesome. That's one of the best games on the console. It's a platformer where you could flip your gravity upside down and fall into the sky, pick up boxes and throw them, had a ton of levels and secret unlockable worlds, bonus levels, and things to find, fun physics and a good challenge. It's just a shame it will never get ported.
Don't let the commercial tie-in fool ya, Cool Spot is truly top notch.
Probably as well for Ocean in the North American market that Quavers was removed from the SNES version of Pushover since we've never heard of the snack anyways here.
Thinking of that Snickers sponsorship in the PAL Biker Mice...
so Sega included a Fruit Roll-Up inside a Genesis boxing game. And I've heard of the game still being sold complete box, and that including the uneaten snack that is surely decades past its expiration date.
So many people mention Yo! Noid here.
The difference is that it was a different game that Capcom just slapped the license on, while they were reskinning the rest of the game, during the localization process.
@Nintendo_Thumb MC Kids got a "sequel" for the GB which kept the McD license in PAL regions but America and Japan got the game as a 7-Up Spot license instead.
@RebelLion1519 Yeah, if you forked out an extra four bucks with a value meal, you could get 1 of 3 BK themed games.
No halo Doritos?
The Chester Cheetah game?
Yanks had more than just cool spot and McKids!
It’s weird that Super Monkey Ball isn’t on the list. You can’t go anywhere for Dole Banana logos in that game!
Also given they’re name checked at the start, how about the weird KFC VR game? And to think since then they’ve made a whole console! KFC what are you doing?? Man I want some KFC now....
Good old Zool, that brings back memories....
I love how you mention Fido Dido offhandedly and then ignore the fact that he had his own game on the same platforms as Cool Spot, making 7•Up the only brand to have two games dedicated to its mascots.
