Loot Crate, the monthly pop-culture-box service, will begin offering a separate subscription program for Nintendo’s upcoming Amiibo figurines.
For the clever price of $13.37 a month\, gaming and pop culture fanatics can subscribe to Loot Crate. Each month, the company sends out a themed goodie-box to each of its many subscribers; past Crates have featured items from Transformers, Doctor Who, Titanfall, Marvel, DC Comics, SEGA, Adventure Time, and even Attack on Titan.
With the launch of Nintendo’s Amiibo figurines on the horizon, Loot Crate will begin offering a separate, Amiibo-only subscription service. The additional plan will begin with 10 pre-selected figurines including Mario, Fox, Pikachu, Yoshi and Donkey Kong; the remaining 5 have not been revealed. A price has not been set for Loot Crate’s Amiibo service, however the individual figurines sell for $12.99 each.
Nintendo unveiled their Amiibo series during their 2014 E3 Digital Event. Each figure includes a personalized microchip, allowing it to interact with a specified list of games; Amiibos can act as a lap-ghost (Mario Kart 8), or even a sparring ally or opponent (Super Smash Bros. for Wii U). Each figure contains on-board storage, allowing the owner to use the same Amiibo data on multiple consoles.
Those who are interested in Loot Crate’s upcoming Amiibo subscription can add their email address to the current waiting list on the official website.
