According to MCV, the online UK Nintendo store will soon be offering fans of Nintendo merchandise a new way to get their fix in the form of a subscription box service.
The service appears similar to existing merchandise box services like Loot Crate and Zavvi’s Z-Box, which offer a range of geek friendly merchandise like T-shirts, toys, and comics on a monthly basis.
Nintendo’s own service (tentatively called the “N-Box” by MCV) will be available either individually or via three-, six-, or twelve-month plans. They will include toys, clothes, and other Nintendo-centric merchandise, branded with your favorite gaming icons like Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon.
While no specific date was given as to when fans can expect to get their hands on the first “N-Box,” they will apparently be available soon. It is important to remember that, as of writing, Nintendo has not confirmed the above information though.
Nintendo has seen huge success in recent months with its Amiibo figurines, so it perhaps makes sense for the company to offer even more ways for gamers to get Nintendo swag. In the meantime, Zavvi (whose owner The Hutt Group also runs Nintendo’s official online store) will be releasing a Nintendo-specific Z-Box in September, so collectors will likely have more than enough merchandise to make up for the recent shortages of Amiibo!
Would you buy a “N-Box,” or has the hunt for Amiibo cost you enough as it is? Share your thoughts below.
