Another Shipment of Nintendo Games Stolen in the UK

No word on what game or games were stolen.


A shipment of Nintendo games has been stolen in England, the second time this has happened in less than a year.

The theft occurred between 9 PM on April 13 and 7 AM on April 14, according to a statement from the Northamptonshire police. Thieves broke into a truck carrying thousands of British pounds' worth of Nintendo games while it was parked in the town of Thrapston. Specifically, they did this by cutting into the side curtain while the driver was asleep.

The statement doesn't specify which games were stolen. Last year's theft involved copies of Splatoon and a Splatoon Amiibo. This resulted in UK retailer Game being forced to cancel preorders.

Eurogamer notes that Star Fox Zero launches in the UK today, but so far there's no indication that the game was involved or that any orders for it will be impacted.

We'll update this story with any more details that are made public.
