Nintendo and Loot Crate are looking to partner up for an amiibo crate!
This morning over at nintendo.com, Nintendo announced that they will be partnering up with the home delivery subscription service Loot Crate to bring amiibo straight to the homes of it’s fans.
Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing stated:
“Featuring compatibility with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors this year, amiibo figures are shaping up to be one of the year’s must-have holiday items…” “Fans around the country already enjoy Loot Crate’s approach to delivering cool new items every month, and now they have a new and convenient way to get their hands on amiibo.”
Chris Davis, Loot Crate’s CEO added:
“We are honored to be working with Nintendo – a company that our team loves and respects, and that many of us grew up with.” “The iconic Super Smash Bros. games have brought people together for years, and we’re excited to become a part of that story in a new way through our amiibo Subscription Service.”
We can expect more details to come in the near future with amiibo looking to be released on November 21st along side the much anticipated Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Wii U. However, if you head over to Loot Crate, you will be able to sign up and be on a wait list to receive information once it’s released. Here’s a little more details:
By joining the subscription service, Loot Crate guarantees the 10 pre-selected amiibo, and allows subscribers to avoid the hassle of rushing to retailers to find their favorite characters. In addition to Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox and Yoshi, the other five pre-selected characters will be revealed through Loot Crate soon. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors will feature amiibo compatibility this year, with functionality for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi’s Wooly World, Mario Party 10 and more coming in the future.
Now, this might be a limited time event, but oh wow what an event. We have been a Loot Crate subscriber for about six months now and we have enjoyed every bit of it. If you want to check out and sign up for Loot Crate, click here.
