Be the envy of your school mates with this dude

You may remember a while ago we ran a story about Nintendo Australia's inability to control its Club Nintendo prizes. Well, it seems it's finally been able to give the service a breath of fresh air, as the first update for the country since its inception last March has finally come to fruition.

That's right, Australians now have an actual reason to start registering products again. Club Nintendo Australia has added a total of five new gifts, with Mario Party cards, a Mario pencil case and three sets of folders and bookmarks, including a Bowser, Toad and Mario set. There's still no sign of any exclusive WiiWare titles like in North America or Japan, but at least Australia is getting something, even if other Clubs have had this stuff for ages.

In any case, if you've saved a tonne of star points since you got all the items last time around, you can rummage through the catalogue to see if anything strikes your fancy.
