A ton of Nintendo fans in the UK have been left without the games they pre-ordered after a truck full of copies of Splatoon (and related Splatoon Amiibo) was stolen.

The theft of the truck, lifted on its way from Nintendoā€™s European warehouse to British chain GAME, means that anyone who pre-ordered Splatoonā€™s Special Edition from the retailer wonā€™t be getting their copy.

MCV reports that affected customers can either cancel their orders or receive the gameā€™s standard edition, along with a Ā£10 discount.

Now, either the truck was stolen at randomā€”the thieves running the risk of picking up a cargo load of cabbage or coat-hangersā€”or they knew exactly what they were getting.

I know Splatoon looks cool, and Amiibo are rare/valuable, but come on...
