Nintendo is reportedly readying its own monthly merchandise subscription service

Rumors are popping up all over the internet today that Nintendo might be getting into the subscription merchandise game. Companies like Loot Crate have achieved moderate success with the home delivered gamer/geek merch boxes, and it looks like Nintendo may want in on the action:

While nothing has been confirmed, sources say the “N-Box” will include everything from toys and clothes to other items branded with Nintendo’s beloved characters. You can also expect what sounds like a pretty cool themed crate, if this indeed a real thing. Those interested can opt for a single box or three, six and twelve month subscriptions.

There is an interesting connection here though. Zavvi is also expected to begin shipping its own ZBOX with a choice of Xbox, Sony or Nintendo goodies. The company is owned by a group that operates Nintendo’s official online store. While there may be some confusion between Zaavi’s upcoming Nintendo themed box and the official N-Box, there just is sufficient enough data to know for sure.

One thing is clear, Nintendo fans are hardcore, and I expect that if Nintendo does indeed get into the merchandise crate game, they will be flying off the shelves like the rest of its popular swag. Here’s to hoping we can get mail-ordered amiibo delivered to our front door every month in the future.

Get a month of geek and gaming gear from Loot Crate for $17 shipped (15% savings)

Loot Crate members get a box of geek and gaming goodies including collectibles, apparel, gadgets, and art delivered to their doorstep every month. Each package is valued at $40 or so, which means the standard one month $20 rate is a pretty good value from the get-go. But if you enter coupon code SAVE3 during checkout you’ll knock $3 off your subscription. So a one month plan will only cost you $16.95 shipped. That’s a good opportunity to give Loot Crate a shot and see if it’s something you’d want to stick with.

Who knows, maybe you’ll be next month’s Mega Crate ($200 value) winner.
