There was no doubt that Loot Crate and Nintendo are both astonishing companies. What happens though when the two decide to team up for this holiday season? We’re about to find out starting on November 21st with their amiibo subscription service. This will allow subscribers to get 10 amiibo figures that are pre-selected by both Loot Crate and Nintendo. We are seeing Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox, and Yoshi in the line-up. They will be shipped in three different phases and will be shipped through Loot Crate throughout the holiday season, which means you nor your families or friends will have to step outside and head over to the store.
“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,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “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.”
“We are honored to be working with Nintendo – a company that our team loves and respects, and that many of us grew up with,” said Chris Davis, Loot Crate’s CEO. “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.”
So what does this new service that’s limited-time mean? You’ll get characters that will offer rewards, intergration, and special opportunities in the already released and upcoming titles for Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS with titles such as Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Hyrule Warriors, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Yoshi’s Wooly World with more coming up in the near future.
