It’s a case of history repeating for Nintendo as once again someone has stolen a load of games that were in transit to stores. The first occurrence of this ungentlemanly behaviour happened eleven months ago when someone stole the entire launch stock for Splatoon that was on the way to GAME.
Exactly which titles have been stolen has not been revealed, with Northants Police simply stating that “Thousands of pound worth of Nintendo games were stolen by thieves, from a lorry that was parked overnight at the services at Thrapston on the A14.”
It appears that whilst the driver took a nap between 9pm on 13th April and 7am on 14th April, thieves cut through the side of the lorry and made away with the Nintendo bounty.
Anyone with information can contact Northamptonshire police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
