You Can Now Play The Classic Tetris Game On A McDonald’s Chicken Nugget

The limited-edition mini-console runs Tetris flawlessly.

Story Highlights

  • Tetris is now reportedly playable on a delicious McDonald’s chicken nugget. The limited-time deal between the Tetris brand and McDonald’s is available in mainland China only.
  • One YouTuber captured the unboxing and gameplay experience in a video. The device is a large chicken nugget made of plastic, with custom design and buttons, and a small screen.
  • The official McDonald’s website also details some information on the deal. The deal is supposedly to commemorate the 40-year anniversary of the protein-filled chicken nuggets.
  • The small console cannot be purchased worldwide, but some users are selling it for very large prices on eBay. 

Tetris is among the most popular video games to exist, garnering a target audience of all ages and spanning various generations of consoles and PC. Regardless, no one would have expected the enticing entry to appear on a McDonald’s chicken nugget, which sadly is not safe for consumption. The tasty-looking giant plastic chicken nugget is able to run one of the most nostalgic versions of Tetris, often seen on cheap plastic handhelds globally.

Yes, the incredible deal between the Tetris brand and McDonald’s in China is entirely legal. As announced by Tetris on Twitter, the McDonald’s franchise is running for a limited time in China only. Interested users can grab a plastic chicken nugget handheld to relish the Tetris experience while enjoying a bite of scrumptious chicken nuggets. However, you have been warned not to try to eat the handheld device out of hunger.

Many gamers have been able to grab a piece of the assortment of chicken nuggets made to deceive hungry chicken nugget lovers. One such YouTuber SuiBianChiChiChi, created a video of the unboxing experience while showing the wistful gameplay, making users ravenous and nostalgic at the same time. The video has been viewed by nearly 10,000 viewers trying to find ways to purchase the limited-time chicken nugget handheld worldwide.

YouTube video

As per the video, the protein-filled chicken nugget comes in its very special box, with custom buttons and a small nostalgic screen to appeal to kids and adults alike. Many users seeing the deal claim that they would have been over the moon if they got a chicken nugget with Tetris as a small kid. While we got to see some gameplay, the YouTuber failed to fill even a single line, claiming the game is very hard in the comments while admitting defeat.

The official McDonald’s website for the mainland China region details all the specifics about the deal in depth, but most of all, the information provided is in Chinese inside the animated images. It is nearly impossible to buy the limited edition chicken nugget outside of the region, as cleared by the YouTuber in the comments. Regardless, many users have taken a shady approach, selling the console on eBay without any repercussions.

Those looking to drain their pockets of a massive $200 amount to play bootleg Tetris can head to eBay to find the handheld for a global purchase, but we advise against it because of the exorbitant prices. 

The unexpected promotion is supposedly due to the 40th anniversary of the chicken mcnugget’s birth in 1983, completing four decades with delicious and protein-filled chicken nuggets around the globe. In other words, the popular fast food is merely a year older than the highly popular Tetris, which began dominating the hearts and minds of gamers the next year.
