Local hipster chain restaurant TeaWood collaborates with Chibi Maruko-chan to stage three Maruko characters themed stores, with the launch of a new AR app to provide “eatertainment” for the customers.
Located at Causeway Bay, Mong Kok and Kowloon Bay, three themed stores are fully decorated with characters of renowned Japanese anime series ‚ÄúChibi Maruko-chan‚ÄĚ, alongside exclusive main dishes and desserts. In addition, an array of limited edition Maruko products are available in the stores.
TeaWood aims at providing ‚Äúeatertainment‚ÄĚ for customers by combining eat and entertainment experience, the chain store said.
As part of the collaboration, a new AR app ‚ÄúT-Factory‚ÄĚ was developed and launched. Customers can play the AR game ‚ÄúWhere is Maruko‚ÄĚ(#ŚįŹšłłŚ≠źŚéĽŚď™ŚÖí) in the app, in which customers may catch different 3D Maruko characters around the stores areas for redemption of Maruko souvenirs. ¬†
