A Twitter post announced a collaboration with The Grand Game at Osaka’s Grand Front Complex in Japan with the Sonic the Hedgehog & Puyo Puyo franchises as part of their special menu for the location’s 10th anniversary event. From now until May 14th, attendees can visit the arcade and try out some themed foods like a Sonic latte & a Puyo pancake. Attendees can also take pictures at a photo op with cutouts of Sonic & Puyo characters and can play various games, such as a giant UFO crane machine & a Pac-Man themed golf course shaped from the level mazes.
The collab is pretty standard fair in Japan, and it is nice to see Puyo Puyo get some marketing love. The pancake look good with ice cream sided fresh fruit & whipped cream, and I laugh at drinking the Sonic latte, hopefully it gives buyers the “boost” needed to enjoy. The Sonic Latte costs 570 yen ($4.19) & the Puyo Pancake costs 800 yen ($5.99). The food area can be located on the 2nd floor of the North Building, as well as the photo ops on the 1st, 2nd, & 4th floors respectively. You can get more info on their Japanese website and can find out more about future events & promotions.
