Global fast food chain Burger King will supposedly begin selling meals with Wii U toys on October 25th. According to a rumor, the toys will be NFC-integrated and can function with the Wii U GamePad; for example, if the toys are for Nintendo Land, a player can place a toy on the new controller’s NFC reader to unlock exclusive content such as special Mii characters.

  1. As if one needed any more reasons to buy burger king…this is indeed a neat concept!

  2. Do they really have to entice kids (and adults, I suppose) into buying their nasty, terribly unhealthy food? I don’t think I can say a single thing that’s good about Burger King. They support animal cruelty while contributing heavily to obesity and other major health issues worldwide. I’m never going there — not even for Nintendo products.

      • simpsons dont let a cow eat you or your love ones. um you do know vegetables have life and feel pain when uprooted. frukts are also living and are i belive equvalent to the ‘eggs’ of the tree? either way every thing is living thats why we live in a biodome with organic life matter. also fruits can kill you for x amount of reason just like a cantalope that killed quite a few and vegetables to. relax and live a litttle were destined to die anyways and what death isnt ugly huh?

  3. If this really is going to happen, I’ll buy one kids meal, then ask for all the toys at once. These would probably be the most valuable kids meal toy ever. :D

  4. No! Just no! I hate it when they do this crap. I don’t want to have to go to burger king to get “exclusive content” or whatever it is. If you have to, put this stuff at GameStop or Walmart. Where people expect this stuff to be.

  5. I don’t care about the toys, I HATE Burger King, but this interests me anyway. I like the concept, I hope they do something like this for Pokemon. Maybe they could integrate the NFC into Pokemon cards? Also, this maybe give us a clue to the release date. I kind of doubt it will come out this soon, but it’s a nice thought nonetheless.

  6. Well an Oct release would be cool…but this could be a good marketing on both Nintendo and B.K….buy more kids meals, collect note toys and bulge up more hype of the Wii U.

  7. Burger King is my favorite fast food chain in the country. If they’re advertising for Nintendo toys with a built-in Near Field Communication integration, imagine the possibilities of using them in games like Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U… or Rayman Legends!!!!!!!

  8. Not to rain on your parade but this would never happen. The toys in kids meals generally cost about 20 cents and while NFC chips are cheap, they’d probably push the price up by a dollar or so. And while Burger King is great, they are still a company.

  9. this is an unbelievebly great marketing strategy!! and the fact that it is nfc! it should b 4 the game tht is bundled w/ th wii u(so we all get to use its features). and i hope that game is….NINTENDO LAND!!!! the only downside to this strategy is that gamers from ps360 ar gonna make fun, saying this is proof that the wii u is for kids…i hope they have something up ther sleevez so they can retaliate.

They could sell: Gamecube, GC Controller, GC Accessories, GC Games, Wii, Wii Controller, Wii Accessories, Wii Games, DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL, DS Games, 3DS, 3DS XL, 3DS Accessories, 3DS XL Accessories, 3DS XL, Wii U, Wii U Accessories, Wii U Games, Gameboy Advance SP, GBA Accessories, and GBA Games.
