Club Nintendo Japan Gets Gold Nunchuks

Posted by James Newton

Jealous?

GoldenEye 007 has a gold Classic Controller Pro, Club Nintendo members can get a gold Wii Wheel for Mario Kart Wii and of course there's a gold Wii Remote Plus for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, but there's not been a gold Nunchuk — until now.

Japanese Club Nintendo members can now get a gold Nunchuk to go with their other golden accessories. The promotion is available until 20th February 2012.

It'd certainly look good with the golden Wii console, too.

No gold cable? Oh well, that's a bit of a miss, but I still want this, if not just because I need a new nunchuk!

Though, of course, I'd rather have it in red anyway.

Would look good if the cord and connector were gold as well. I think I will continue to use my black nunchuk even if this is presented to Club Nintendo in North America.

Is it stupid to say I clicked on this story because I read "Gold Nunchuks" and not "Gold Wii Nunchuks"

That would look perfect with the Zelda Wii remote. Japan's Club Nintendo always get the best rewards. Remember the SNES Classic Controller and the statue of Link?

SNES Classic Controller has come to Europe and North America too though, and the Link statue definitely got to Europe if not the States.

@James
No, the states didn't get the golden link statue... That sucked.

I really hope the golden nunchuck comes state side. Also, a silver one with Hyrulian shield decorations would be awesome! Then it's as close to holding the shield as you can get. Or, how about a full shield with the nunchuck as the handle?!! Ok, that would be super dorky, but let's get it done!!

Release it North America before January, because that's when I'm gonna play Skyward Sword (Birthday Present).

Japan can't give NA something without finding something new to hoard, it seems.

I have the Classic Controller Pro in gold, a Wii Remote in gold, why don't I have a nunchaku in gold? >.<

...also, why is the cord to that white? I think it should be black to match the Classic Controller Pro.

I guess the white cord is in keeping with the silly-looking white buttons on the otherwise-hot gold remote.

@Ryno Becoming less and less certain with each passing minute... Thought it was a worldwide thing, now I see it was a Euro, Japan and Australia thing. Apologies!

As far as I can remember, U.S. Club Nintendo hasn't issued any game items, other than the multi-colored stylus set. Y'all get so much better stuff!

i can see it now, this will come to the US club nintendo when everybody has spent their coins on the download games currently being offered.
anyway, the white cord does look odd with the gold nunchuck, but i still would like to have one though.
oh, and playasia.com, as much as they get their hands on the cool japanese goodies, they are damn expensive though.
also check them out for the official white gamecube controllers, there`s nothing like getting your hands on a brand new untouched one of those babies.

Dang I need to join Club Nintendo how does one join it or was it a limited time thing?

@30: You can join any time. You earn coins by registering your games and answering surveys. I hope you've saved all your warranty documents. You can also link to your Wii and earn coins off of titles you download.

Seeing as how I have a Gold Wiimote and Gold Classic Controller Pro, I need this to complete my gold controller set :D

This of course should have come with the golden wiimote and Skyward sword! And the cable should of course have been golden too!

wooooh that is weird, if you have seen my signature lately this is exactly what I have been asking for. Just need it in Australasia.

Oh, do want.
The white cord isn't a problem as the Gold Wii Remote has white buttons so it'd kinda match.

hmm would look better if the analogue stick was white. (as well as the buttons) Would match the Zelda one better.

It's okay, but I don't mind not having it, so no, I'm not all that jealous. I'm happy with black! :D

@Burning_Spear: Thanks for the info I signed up and registered my 3DS and what games I still had the codes from (Mario Kart Wii NSMBW, Punch Out!!) and have enough to get Super Mario Kart on the VC and have some left over. Cant believe I didnt join it sooner.

Which is exactly why i didn't get the limited edition Wiimote. While i had 4 WM+ attachments before i'd have gotten a fully golden Wiimote.
So no, i'm not jealous at all. :)

I emailed Nintendo yesterday to literally BEG for this to be released to North American Club Nintendo members, and I implore everyone else here to do the same! There is strength in numbers, I tell you. Nintendo did decide to release that Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary package in the States after their American fans made a big uproar over it only being released in Japan... so there IS hope, everybody... but you've gotta start reaching out to NOA for this stuff! I still want that gold Wii Wheel they gave their Japanese Club Nintendo members a few years ago, too...
