Little King’s Story just came out in Japan and to promote it Marvelous crowned a struggling musician with 100 Whoppers.

 

Why? Yoshiro Kimura, Producer, explained he was looking for someone optimistic about their dream despite being broke. Little King’s Story begins with a poor country and a cheerful protagonist. See the match?

 

The contest winner was presented with 100 whoppers, 100 ripe bananas from Banana King, and 100 coupons to use Bath King’s bathhouse. An unorthodox, but heartwarming promotion for a delightful game.

    Poor musician on the street, give him bananas and free baths, lol.. rather unusual promo. Never knew that are so many kings, and BK has got the scariest of them all..

      and a heart attack, those 100 whoppers aren’t the best food around, but I guess they are hoping to counteract the unhealthiness with 100 bananas. >__>

      I agree with you about the BK king, he’s really freaky looking :/

    That’s neat.
    And the game is amazing if anyone hasn’t played it yet. One of the best Wii games on the system for me.
