Gold Nunchuk Returns To North American Club Nintendo In January

Back in August Nintendo made a Gold Nunchuk available on Club Nintendo in North America, for those who wanted to have a bit of an Olympic feel to their Wii gaming. It really was a thing of beauty and a must have item for those with the limited edition Skyward Sword Gold Wii Remote.

Naturally they were snapped up very quickly, and those North Americans with a keen eye may have seen its return last Monday when Nintendo threw some more into the mix. You would have had to have been quick, though, as they were snapped up faster than a Mario game on a home console launch day, leaving many people disappointed once more.

Luckily Nintendo will be making even more available this coming January, which should give you plenty of time to collect the necessary 900 coins needed to swipe one. There’s no official date yet, but knowing Nintendo it’ll just haphazardly throw them out on a random day, so be ready! (Wii, Wii U)

I want this to match my gold Wiimote, wish they would sell them in stores, don't have enough coins

Me too my friend. They got em on Ebay for a gazillion bucks but they should just have them at normal price in the store.

A bit of tape and gold spray paint works wonders.

Nice little collectible. I'd probably get one if I had the coins and/or a gold Wiimote to go with it.

I saw that it would be hitting on that Monday, so I made sure my account was ready; I have the Skyward Sword Wii remote, so I wanted this to go alongside it. Still, I'm surprised it sold out so quickly again, as 900 coins is a pretty big number to hit.

I was able to snag one on November 26th when they were available again. But you are right, they were snagged up like crazy. Thankfully with the Wii U and a couple of digital purchases I was able to hit that 900 coin mark. Will go great with my Zelda Wiimote. Now all I need is a blue nunchuck to match by Blue Wiimote Plus Remote.
