Fans of Nintendo’s classic Kirby character will come together for a new Guinness World Records attempt for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously. At the PAX Prime conference on Sept. 1, these consumers will not only attempt to break the standing record of 304 participants but will also get the chance to win fun prizes, including Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition. The event will help to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Kirby franchise and celebrate the upcoming Sept. 16 launch of Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition for Wii.
For two decades, the unique-looking pink hero known as Kirby has been inhaling his way through Dream Land and into the hearts of video game fans everywhere. While he may be pink, round and adorable, he’s also a ferocious warrior who defeats his enemies by inhaling objects and spitting them back out with incredible force, making him one of the most recognizable and beloved game characters in the world.
Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition features six fan-favorite games from the Kirby franchise on one disc, plus additional challenge stages, a commemorative booklet, a music CD and an interactive timeline that gives players a fun way to explore Kirby’s colorful history.
For those wishing to participate, everything takes place Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012. Check in is at 1 pm (PST) and the bubble gum blow off from 2-3 pm (PST). It all takes place at the Convention Centre in Seattle where PAX Prime is being held.
