Xbox simply introduced a brand new model of one among its most well-known gaming peripherals, this time produced in partnership with Warner Bros. to have fun a forthcoming film. I’m speaking about an Xbox controller made solely out of chocolate. No, you’ll be able to’t truly play video games with it. Sure, you’ll be able to eat it, because it’s made out of 100% chocolate. And naturally, it’s wrapped in a gold wrapper — a reference to the notorious golden tickets that Charlie and firm needed to discover as a way to enter Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Manufacturing facility. The movie, known as Wonka, is a prequel to Roald Dahl’s basic Charlie and the Chocolate Manufacturing facility and stars Timothée Chalamet because the chocolateer himself.
To win the “(X)field of Goodies” — or so the Xbox launch calls it — followers must enter a sweepstakes. The phrases, sadly, require following Xbox on X (previously known as Twitter) and retweeting the tweet saying the context. It runs from Nov. 13 – Dec. 14. You don’t simply win a chocolate controller itself. You additionally get 5 different chocolate truffles, every themed to Xbox: Achievement Searching, Button Masher, Your Citrus Sidekic, Xtra Kick, and Wonka for the Win. You may also doubtlessly win a duplicate Xbox Sequence X that equally seems to be made solely out of chocolate.
It’s been a yr of blockbuster collaborations with actually robust branding, and that is very true for model names that enchantment to children. A few of these have been all-encompassing, just like the inescapable variety of Barbie branded gadgets, ranging type hair clips to pool floats to inline rollerblades. And, after all, The Tremendous Mario Bros. Film opened up the chance for tons of latest toys and recreation merch.
I don’t know exactly what varieties of branded merch I anticipated for Wonka. I assumed, after all, that there could be sweet concerned — chocolate even, and doubtless in a golden wrapper. However chocolate within the form of an Xbox controller? Do we expect Chalamet can be a gamer in Willy Wonka? In that case, I presume Xbox could be his console of alternative.
