Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Kirby with a Guinness World Record Attempt at PAX
Planning on attending PAX this year in Seattle? Are you a huge Kirby fan? Ever wanted to help set a Guinness World Record?
Well attendees of this year’s Penny Arcade Expo will get a rare chance to help Nintendo set a world record, as the company is looking to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Kirby with an attempt to set a record for the most people blowing bubble gum simultaneously. (Did anyone even know there was a record for that?!?)
During the conference on Sep. 1, fans can try to break the record that features 304 participants, while also having the opportunity to win 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, which features six games from the Kirby franchise on one disc, plus additional challenge stages, a commemorative booklet, a music CD and an interactive timeline.
Check-in for the attempt begins at 1 p.m. and the attempt itself will get started between 2-3 p.m.
