Nintendo To Bring Amiibo Through Loot Crate

By   /   Nov 10, 2014

 

To launch the amiibo figurine craze, Nintendo has established a partnership with geek trinket providers Loot Crate. Through their services, customers will be able to receive 10 amiibos, selected by the company.

First, let’s explain the concept of Loot Crate for those out of the loop. Loot Crate is a subscription service that ships out items to its audience each month.

Subscribers pay a fixed amount every month, and then simply wait for their box to be shipped in the mail. Items come from various brands and usually far exceed the cost of a subscription, with the only modifier being that these trinkets are thrown in at random.

Past crates have included Guardians of the Galaxy Pop Vinyl figurines, Transformers shirts or Adventure Time boxes. There’s usually a central team to the monthly serving.

With that out of the way, Loot Crate will allow its subscribers to receive 10 amiibo figurines without the need to go to a store. These will be sent out in three separate shipments throughout the holiday season.

Loot Crate has revealed the first amiibo choices, which are as follows: Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox and Yoshi. Five more amiibos will be named shortly.

You will need to subscribe to a special amiibo subscription to get shipped your items. There’s a waiting list open now, as the deal waits to go live.

Additionally, Nintendo and Loot Crate have more plans to cooperate, regarding Super Smash Bros.

Amiibo functionality has been confirmed for Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors for this year. In 2015, Captain Toad, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi’s Wooly World and Mario Party 10 will become compatible as well.
