Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc., a leading developer of performance tires for enthusiasts, has announced a partnership with Cie Games to integrate the Nitto Tire brand in the leading and wildly popular automotive-based Facebook game Car Town. The yearlong multiple phase integrated partnership will extend to November 2012. The joint collaboration will offer Car Town players new in-game activities, virtual items, community contests and giveaways.
As part of the partnership, players can participate in Nitto-branded game missions featuring the company’s new line of tires. The first mission will introduce the Nitto Motivo, an all-weather, ultra-high performance tire, recently unveiled at this year’s SEMA show, to Car Town players and tie-in real-world benefits to related activities in-game. Other Nitto branded virtual items that will be available in-game include posters, garage items and custom virtual vehicles modeled after Nitto sponsored race cars.
Additionally, Car Town will host various community contests to create Nitto custom-branded car wraps and/or garages. Gamers will also be able to partake in the Nitto Tire Car Town Virtual Giveaway, where they can simply visit and "Like" Nitto’s Facebook page, to unlock various branded virtual items, first one being the Nitto Motorsports Big Rig for use in their Car Town garage.
