The McDonald's restaurant chain will begin selling its first ever Gundam Happy Meals in Japan on May 18. Sold as Happy Sets in Japan, the meals will include one of eight Gundam Try-Age cards.
The cards will feature mecha from the Mobile Suit Gundam AGE and Mobile Suit Gundam UC anime series as well as other Gundam franchise titles. The trading card arcade game Gundam Try-Age debuted in Japan last July.
Viz Media partnered with McDonald's to release toys inspired by the Naruto television anime and manga series in Latin America in 2010. McDonald's also offered Astro Boy film and Bakugan Battle Brawlers toys in the United States in 2009. Previous anime-themed Happy Set prizes in Japan have included Sgt. Frog (Keroro Gunsō) figures and exclusive Tamagotchi! anime DVDs.
