Splatoon Stick up!

A lorry transporting copies of a special edition of Nintendo's Splatoon video game has been stolen.

The vehicle was in transit from Nintendo's European warehouse to retailer game, said Nintendo.

The incident has left Uk stores unable to fulfill the pre-orders it has taken for the Wii U game.

Game is offering standard versions of the title in its place accompanied by a £10 discount, or will cancel gamers orders, should they wish to do so.
