For those who are excited about Jump Force coming out next month and also love noodles, a great new contest was just announced today. Bandai Namco has teamed up with Nissin for an exclusive Jump Force-themed sweepstakes, “Jump to Japan.” The grand prize is a trip to Japan and a tour of the Cup Noodles Museum. The contest begins on Jan. 17 and ends on Jun. 30. You have plenty of time to get your noodle fix and enter plenty of times. The winners will be chosen on Jul. 12. It’s a clever marketing partnership for both companies. I feel people will simply just start collecting the noodles for the chance to enter, as well as have some cool Jump Force-branded merchandise.
All you have to do is pick up a package of specially marked packages of Nissin Cup Noodles that have the Jump Force logo on it, and submit a photo of your receipt or proof of purchase. The four types of noodles that will have Goku, Luffy and Naruto on them include Beef, Chicken, and Shrimp varieties. These will be available at retailers across the USA, like Wal-Mart, Kroger, Ralph’s, Albertson’s, Safeway, Vons, Sam’s Club, Shop Rite, WinCo, H-E-B, Food Lion, Winn Dixie, and Meijer. Those interested can enter once daily up to a maximum of 100 entries per person during the contest period. So for those worried about it being a short contest, fear not, as you have tons of time to stock up on noodles and enter away. Please note this contest is only open to those in the USA.
For those interested in knowing all the prizes up for grabs, here is a rundown:
Grand Prize (1): The Grand Prize Winner will receive a check in the amount of $12,300 that he/she may use towards a trip for Grand Prize Winner and a guest of his/her choosing – to Tokyo, Japan, two (2) tickets (for Grand Prize Winner and a guest) to the Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama, Japan, one (1) JUMP FORCE Collector’s Edition game, two (2) Cup Noodles t-shirts, and two (2) Cup Noodles hats (collectively, the “Grand Prize”).
First Prize (2): Each First Prize Winner will receive one (1) JUMP FORCE Collector’s Edition game, one (1) Cup Noodles T-shirt, and one (1) Cup Noodles hat (collectively, “First Prize”). The ARV of each First Prize is $295.99. Two (2) First Prizes are available in the Sweepstakes.
Second Prize (3): Each Second Prize Winner will receive One (1) JUMP FORCE game, one (1) Cup Noodles T-shirt and one (1) Cup Noodles hat (collectively, “Second Prize”). The ARV of each Second Prize is $95.99. Three (3) Second Prizes are available in the Sweepstakes.
All sound like great prizes to win, but the trip to Japan is the real experience, and one lucky winner will get the chance of a lifetime. Also, that sweet, sweet Jump Force: Collector’s Edition isn’t too shabby either. Good luck to all entrants! Jump Force launches on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam on Feb. 15.Source/Facebook]
