Truck Full Of Amiibo, Nintendo Games Stolen

A ton of Nintendo fans in the UK have been left without the games they pre-ordered after a truck full of copies of Splatoon (and related Splatoon Amiibo) was stolen.

The theft of the truck, lifted on its way from Nintendo's European warehouse to British chain GAME, means that anyone who pre-ordered Splatoon's Special Edition from the retailer won't be getting their copy.

MCV reports that affected customers can either cancel their orders or receive the game's standard edition, along with a £10 discount.

Now, either the truck was stolen at random — the thieves running the risk of picking up a cargo load of cabbage or coat-hangers — or they knew exactly what they were getting.

I know Amiibo are rare and valuable, but come on...


    I've seen a man sell an organ for an Amiibo it's a serious bussiness, make no mistake they knew what was in that truck.

      So was he doing paper work in front of you or carrying an eski dripping with blood or was a guy just cutting someone else up? How does one see this transaction?

        A post on read "I sold a kidney for an Amiibo, ask me anything"

    The Amiibo craze is really crazy.

      What craze? It seems to have died down around here? I've recently seen Meta Knight, Sonic, Marth, etc. Amiibos in stores just sitting there on the shelves.

        Sold about 10 amiibos today at the store I work in. Across all series. Its slow, but still a pretty good day for us

    Can't wait for the Payday 2 DLC version...

      Guys, the Amiibo - go get it.

      Wow! What an Amiibo! etc....

    I can hear the soundtrack to Heat playing while I read this article. Top notch movie. Damn you Waingro, they coulda all gotten away! DAMN YOUUUUUUU!
