The Gold Nunchuk Shines Again on Club Nintendo

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Hurry!

Last year we brought you the happy news that the gold Nunchuk was set to return to Club Nintendo in North America, a relief for those that want to use their limited edition The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword golden Wii Remote with even more style. Well, it's back in stock, so you'd better hurry.

Available for 900 of your hard-earned coins, it's available in limited quantities and, if previous appearances are an indicator, will be rarer than actual gold dust. Head on over to the product page, login and grab it while you still can. The description also explains that it "will simply be gold in color and will not contain any actual precious metals", in case you had any funny ideas of what was on offer.

At the time of writing it was still in stock, so let us know if you successfully nab one.

Thanks to Gustavo for the tip.

You only need to buy and register six Wii U consoles and it's all yours FREE.

@Gamesake lol so true!

I stopped collecting stars (european nintendo registration points) because of that: 250 per game, 16 games later you get a...... small half-pluche mario figure!

Nope.

I don't have a wii so the only things I get are free downloads from nintendo eshop. (100-200 coins. Depends on the game :] )

@erv It's something for nothing, like all reward programs. You shouldn't be buying things you don't want just to get points, but it's a nice extra for things you're already buying.

God I hope it'll come back to the Australian Club Nintendo, I'm keeping my eyes out, it was 3000 stars last time I believe, and I have an ample amount to buy it :D

I'm still hoping we can use stars to buy eshop credit again, like with the Wii. That was the only thing I ever used them for.

I'd love if this was released on the Europe Club Nintendo,because there's nothing on there.

I have enough to get it but nah. I have 2 nunchucks already, and I don't really need a gold one. Now, if there were KIU cards... I'd have no more coins then.

I received one of those for Christmas. It goes excellently with my gold Hylian remote I got with Skyward Sword.

If you plan on buying Nintendo games regardless, why not register for stuff you wouldn't otherwise have a chance to get? Seems perfectly logical to me. I wouldn't buy a game I don't want just to get silly "coins", but neither would any other respectable person. Having said that... The Golden Nunchuk is mine! Furthermore, it seems the 3DS card case sold out quicker than the Nunchuk this time.

I was lucky enough to nab one when it came to the Aussie Club Nintendo (first Club in the western world to get it weirdly enough) nearly a year ago. I've built up another 3000 stars since then so it would be nice for something awesome to pop up again!

@Omega Unfortunately, it isn't really made of Gold, otherwise it would be worth many more play coins, or be given away in a sweepstakes.

Neat. Though I may not be able to get that for a while. And by a while, I mean a while.

I have 600 points on one account and 400 on the other. If only I could combine them...

You're telling me, I'm in the UK and we missed out on it last time! I had to pay about £40 to get mine and have it imported!

I shouldn't have bought so many Club Nintendo games. I want to buy one but don't have enough coins. Why not make this a platinum prize?

Been holding out for this little gold nugget since last summer, making sure I always had 900 coins in the till until they became available again. Patience has paid off. Happy joy joy.

How about you update the stars catalogue for the people in Australia Nintendo? Its been the same stuff for over a year now, while the US gets the gold nunchuck 3 times!! Bah!

Yay! I've been saving up my coins for this, as I didn't have enough last time it appeared. Now I finally have a matching Nunchuck for my Zelda Wiimote.

Dammit... even with a brand new 3DS, I doubt I'll have enough coins to nab one of these in time...

Maybe I shouldn't have spent 150 on Metroid II...

Yet again UK/Europe misses out on all the good stuff! I can't remember the last time NoE even bothered offering anything new to the catalogue.
