Daedalic Entertainment and Daylight Studios entice media representatives and visitors of the Tokyo Game Show alike with an exceptional idea at the studios’ booth of Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?!: In Hall 3, N02, 3000 potatoes of the Japanese Matsumoto Farm adorn the booth. Players can grab a potato as a souvenir and choose between three Japanese varieties: May Queen, Toya und Kita-Akari. All potatoes were grown at the Matsumoto Farm in Hokkaido and if any tubers are left, they’ll be donated to the charity organization Second Harvest.
Kouta Matsumoto, Business Development Director of Matsumoto Farm, remembers how this idea took shape: “I have known Don for some time now and we were having dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Shibuya when it all happened. It was a shocking surprise when he shared that he has been working on a game IP called Holy Potatoes® And he was equally shocked when he found out my family runs a 65 year old potato farm.”
Don Sim, CEO of Daylight Studios: “It was like a stroke of lightning and we immediately thought a collaboration between Matsumoto Farm and Daylight Studios would be an amazingly, crazy and fun idea. Crazy fun is the essence of our Holy Potatoes® Brand.”
The Matsumoto Farm will continue close cooperation with Daylight Studios in the future. So more tasty potato-related events are on the horizon!
