RUMOR: Nintendo to offer Loot Crate style boxes

An interesting post over at MCV seems to indicate that the Nintendo store in Europe will be offering a new subscription box service, similar to Loot Crate in the US. The article states that it will be called the "N-Box", which will feature toys, clothes and other merchandise from popular Nintendo franchises. The article also states that they will be available individually, and can be subscribed to a 3, 6 or 12 month plan.


Nintendo hasn't commented on this officially yet, so we'll have to consider this all speculation in the meantime. What would you like to see in an official Nintendo goody crate?

RUMOR - Best Buy to get decent stock of Dark Pit amiibo

Info is coming from various Best Buy employees...

- some locations are expecting 80 units
- Best Buy's not offering a pre-order window or online ordering for this amiibo

RUMOR - Dragon Quest XI coming to 3DS, PS4

Here's a juicy rumor for you guys and gals. We're all hoping that Dragon Quest XI is going to come to a Nintendo platform, but it wasn't looking too likely. We heard that Square-Enix was bringing the next entry to consoles. Wii U didn't seem plausible, but we've also heard in the past that Square-Enix brings their games to the most popular platforms in Japan. There's no denying 3DS is the most popular platform out right now, and a 2ch rumor tied to the earlier leaked logo is saying that the title will get both 3DS and PS4 versions. Ni no Kuni saw DS and PS3 releases, so such unique platform support isn't out of the question. Thanks to VGAMER for the heads up!
