Nintendo Of Canada Goes Bananas With Contest And Donation

Recently, Nintendo of Canada held a contest for its fans in celebration of the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Said contest naturally involved the Kong family’s favourite snack, bananas, and challenged gamers to guess how many of the yellow fruit were frozen inside a large block of ice that had been crafted within a Vancouver area warehouse.

My guess of 3000 and something wasn’t correct, but a Medicine Hat, Alberta resident’s was. That lucky winner — who received a four-day vacation to Whistler and a Wii U gift set featuring Tropical Freeze — guessed the correct amount, which was 4,835 bananas.

Once the fun ended and the winner had been crowned, Nintendo made a lot of other people happy by donating every one of the bananas to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.

For more information, check out the following press release, and its related behind-the-scenes video.
