GAME UK’s Entire Stock Of Splatoon Special Edition Stolen In Lorry Heist

UK retailer GAME has had its entire shipment of Splatoon Special Editions for Wii U stolen in a lorry heist. The Special Edition of the game comes with a limited edition Squid Inkling Amiibo figure. Twitter account @AmiiboAlerts posted an image of the email sent out to the unlucky GAME customers who had pre-ordered Splatoon Special Edition, which was due to be released this Friday, May 29th.


Nintendo UK confirmed the theft to Eurogamer and said they were working with GAME to contact those affected.

Comment of the day goes to Eurogamer member asphaltcowboy who asks “Do the police know who did it? Any inkling at all?”. Bravo, sir.
