A lorry transporting Splatoon stock from Nintendo’s warehouse to GAME has been stolen,
GAME has updated its customers with the news, and says that it is unable to satisfy orders of the Special Edition of the game, which includes the Squid Amiibo.
GAME is instead offering standard versions of the title in its place, with a £10 discount. Gamers can cancel their orders should they wish.
"We can confirm that the lorry transporting the Splatoon stock from Nintendo’s European warehouse to GAME UK has been stolen," Nintendo said in a statement. "Included as part of this delivery was GAME’s allocation of the Splatoon + Squid Inkling amiibo and as a result we are unable to honour pre-orders for this item in GAME. We are working with GAME to contact those customers affected. Whilst these unfortunate circumstances were out of Nintendo UK and GAME’s control, we apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment that this has caused."
The company says it will be sending out the replacement game via first class post to ensure stock reaches gamers.
