Nintendo has partnered up with Loot Crate to bring their new amiibo figures to customers in a new unique way.
With the holidays fast approaching and the launch of amiibo on the horizon, the online delivery service Loot Crate is helping fans receive select amiibo figures after they launch on November 21st. By signing up for an “amiibo Subscription Service,” subscribers will receive 10 pre-selected amiibo (including Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox and Yoshi) separated into three special Loot Crate shipments throughout the holiday season without ever having to leave their homes.
“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.”
The monthly subscription price for the Loot Crate is $13.37 per month plus shipping. However, the price in Canada is significantly higher. If you live in Canada the monthly price for Loot Crate will run you $29.99, though shipping is included in the price for Canada. So it’s really hard to say just how much higher the actual cost will be.
