Nintendo Partners with Lootcrate for Amiibo Crates
This morning, Lootcrate announced its partnership with Nintendo to create an Amiibo crate subscription starting November 21. 10 pre-selected figures will be sent in three shipments across the holiday season.
Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox, and Yoshi, all featured in Super Smash Bros., will be among the first five shipped out. The other five characters will be a surprise until shipment.
Nintendo's amiibo figures were introduced in June of this year and are to be used in conjunction with various games for the Wii U and 3DS platforms. They are likened to Skylanders and Disney Infinity figurines.
The following games have amiibo compatibility already: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, and Hyrule Warriors. Next year, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi's Wooly World, Mario Party 10, and more games will be compatible.
Anyone interested in hearing more information on the subscription can sign up via email on Lootcrate's website.
