KITKAT AND PLAYSTATION® COLLABORATE ON AN EXCLUSIVE BRAND CAMPAIGN
KitKat and PlayStation are collaborating on an exclusive brand campaign, which is being developed and activated by build a rocket. With this collaboration, KitKat aims at attracting a new generation of consumers to their brand, as well as staying relevant within this demographic. The global campaign called “One Break Away”, adds value through engaging content and the outlook of great prizes, such as a PlayStation®5 (PS5™) console.
The campaign infuses breaks in gaming with a positive context, telling an authentic story that gamers can relate to. The key aspect of “One Break Away” focuses on using a break to compliment the gaming experience, by giving players the opportunity to recharge their energy and regain perspective while playing.
A big promotion titled “Play, Break & Win” will be held to mark the launch of the campaign. By purchasing a KitKat or Lion promotional product, consumers can locate a code to enter a competition for a PS5 console and other PlayStation-related prizing.
The campaign is further complemented by a video asset that incorporates characters and content from the recently launched Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, a PS5 game where players go dimension-hopping with Ratchet and Clank as they take on an evil robotic emperor from another reality. The collaboration between KitKat and PlayStation will also be promoted through several influencer activations and is the project of esports agency build a rocket.
“It makes us proud to be a part of this campaign between two global brands. Our goal is to create bridges between industry natives and non-endemics and we’re looking forward to pushing our creativity even further together through this activation.” Alexander Albrecht, Managing Director at build a rocket.
“This is an exciting day for KitKat as we announce the start of an exclusive collaboration that capitalizes on the power of an engaging campaign and authentic content to further accelerate our commitment to gaming. Entering the gaming market has been an absolute blast for KitKat, and we are truly thrilled with the positive feedback from the community and our partners. The market offers great potential to present our brand as young and digital to a growing community and to gain recognition through authenticity and value creation. We look forward to a smashing collaboration with PlayStation to bring worthwhile and entertaining content to the gaming community.“ Georg Fischer, Marketing Manager KitKat - Europe, Middle East, North Africa.
The multi-faceted activation of the campaign will be launched in four phases across the respective countries starting in August 2021.
