KFC Mountain Dew ‘Gamer’s Box 2.0’ is a convenient, no-mess meal box with built in gaming controls. It can be called a gamer’s ultimate fantasy! The snazzy new limited-edition twist to the KFC meal box features inbuilt gaming controls and a slot for your phone. Consumers can pair their phone with the controllers on the meal box through bluetooth, for a non-stop gaming session, while they enjoy a finger lickin’ good meal and sip on some refreshing Mountain Dew. Because neither gaming nor the Colonel’s chicken should ever stop!

Commenting on the limited-edition Gamer’s Box 2.0, KFC India  chief marketing officer Lluís Ruiz Ribot said, “We are excited to partner with Mountain Dew to co-create the Gamer’s Box 2.0 as it brings the best of both worlds – gaming and finger lickin’ good chicken  to consumers!

Talking about their commitment to gaming and the KFC partnership, Mountain Dew and PepsiCo India associate director Naseeb Puri said, Gaming in India is gaining exponential popularity across platforms. As a brand, Mountain Dew has always been at the forefront of bringing in consumer experiences that have celebrated emerging trends. Last year, we created Dew Arena that went on to become India’s largest ever gaming championship and is into its second edition this year. The partnership with KFC is a reiteration of our commitment to gaming and e-sports in India. We are excited to partner with KFC in a bid to create the perfect accompaniment for gamers.”
