Hugely popular “MINIONS RUN” event to host its first ever game in Fukuoka

17.November.2017 | SPOT

Despicable Me 3 will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan on December 6, 2017.

Despicable Me 3 is the latest creation from Illumination Entertainment. Released earlier this year in July, the animated film topped the Japanese box office 4 weeks in a row and has earned $1 billion worldwide.


To celebrate the released of the movie on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan, an event titled “MINIONS RUN” will be held at Fukuoka Castle Kouro-Kan on Saturday December 9th. People will be given a Minions costume to wear and be sent on various missions they must complete to win the game.


All Minions must begin at the opening stage. They must then seek out secret locations that have been set up and solve all the puzzles!

There will be lots of great places to take photos too such as a billboard and giant balloon, so you can enjoy the event at your own face whole taking photos with your family and friends. There will also be a fair and Minions merchandise for sale, so be sure to go and take a look.

The event is also holding a hashtag campaign. Simply follow the official Minions social media and post the hashtag #ミニオンズラン福岡 (“Minions Run Fukuoka”) for a chance to win some merch. The event is running from November 11th to December 9th.
