UPDATE: McDonald’s Japan’s site confirms that the collaborative promotion was from 2015.
McNuggets remain as one of McDonald’s most popular items and the chain is now looking to introduce a 48-piece bucket in Japan.
In collaboration with NGT48, the massive portion of golden morsels will serve as McDonald’s Japan’s latest promotional item, trumping the U.S. branch’s 20-piece option. The buckets will feature members from the AKB48 J-Pop group with select members visiting certain locations to pass out orders to fans. The new launch will begin releasing in the Niigata prefecture, but there’s no word yet on how many sauce packets will be included in each order.
