"We regret to inform you that the lorry transporting the Splatoon stock from Nintendo's European warehouse to Game UK has been stolen," reads the message. "Included in this delivery was our allocation of the Splatoon + Squid Inkling Amiibo."

"As a result, we are unable to honour your original pre-order due for deliver on the 29th of May 2015."

According to the retailer it will be unable to acquire replacements and is instead substituting in the standard edition of Splatoon. Customers will still receive the Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy Amiibo.

The standard edition of Splatoon will be discounted by £10 as an apology for the extraordinary circumstances. Orders of the game will be sent by first class post on May 29, when Splatoon will be released in the UK.

Customers can also choose to cancel the complete order, or cancel the game and place an order for just the Amiibo.
