Nintendo and McDonalds Japan announced today the start of a new tie-up that will give DS owners access to a variety of free services at nationwide McDonalds restaurants starting June 19.
The service is known as “Mac de DS,” or “DS at McDonalds.” DS owners who visit McDonalds shops with their system will have access to such free services as character distribution, digital stamp rallies, coupons for McDonalds food items, comic distribution, and exclusive game demos.
The first character distribution offer will be the Jirachi Pokemon for Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. This will be available from June 19 through July 17.
For the stamp rally component, the DS will display a digital collection sheet, which can be filled out with digital stickers that will be available for download at McDonalds shops. Collect a certain number of stamps, and you’ll be able to get coupons for free food items. Each McDonalds shop will offer one stamp per day, meaning to get more stamps quickly, DS owners will have to either visit one shop over multiple days or run around visiting multiple shops in a single day.
