Starting today and running through May 22nd, Nintendo is teaming up with McDonald’s to promote the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch with a series of eight Happy Meal toys. The lineup includes Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Invincible Mario, a Red Koopa Shell, and a 1-Up Mushroom—each with its own special function (the translucent Mario lights up in different colors for example). You can even win a Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle.
From the press release:
In addition to the toys, families can take their fun to the next level by entering a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 100 Nintendo Switch Prize Packs inclusive of a Nintendo Switch system and the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game. Eligible customers that scan and purchase a meal at McDonald’s using the McDonald’s mobile app between now and May 22 will be entered. Customers get one entry for redeeming any deal in the app and two entries when they purchase a Happy Meal. No purchase is necessary to enter. The sweepstakes is open only to residents of the United States who are 13 and older. Official rules for the sweepstakes, including details about how to enter without making a purchase, can be found at online and http://www.PlayatMcD.com and at participating McDonald’s restaurants.
