Gold Nunchuck Sold Out. Again.

TroubadourNovember 28th, 2012 by Troubadour

Many of us remember how the Golden Nunchuck that Club Nintendo made available back in August sold out extremely quickly, but this has to be a new record. The reward was made available once again yesterday, and astonishingly, it’s already out of stock. Hit the jump to read more!

I had no clue that people were so ravenous for this gold-colored controller, and I still can’t believe it’s already gone. There has yet to be an announcement on whether or not they will be restocking the thing. I don’t doubt that Club Nintendo will make them available again, with them being in such an intensely high demand, but you never know.

If you didn’t get yours, you can either wait and see if there will be another opportunity to get one, or you can do what this person did and take matters into your own hands. What are your guys’ thoughts on this jaw-dropping sellout? Tell us in the comments section below!

    I had 1200 coins and got mine, it was sold out on the same day.

    I think I’ll just keep it unopened, it’s not like I don’t already have a nunchuck, or I still play wii for that matter.

    • Brandikins11

      That could’ve gotten you the Game and Watch, but it isn’t elusive like the nunchuck so that was a good choice.

      I’m opening mine since I have the other two gold wii peripherals that came out in America and I’m a collector.

  • mwc1985

    Screw trying to keep up with this limited edition tease from Nintendo, I’m just going to grab a spare nunchuk and some gold spray paint…

    • Austin_NES

      Me too

        thats what im saying! and plus if you already have a nunchuk whats the point of spending coins/time/money on this! sure it looks cool and its zelda-themed but also they sell out super quick (as you can read ^)

        • christburner

          and its not even zelda themed, its just gold…thats like saying “dude check out this zelda themed dollar coin ive got….ITS GOLD!!” thats why im sayin slap a hylian crest or triforce or somethin thats makes it stand out as a Zelda item…not just spray it gold…

          • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

            i mean i could spray paint myself gold and say that im zelda themed right?

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

            No, it actually is Zelda-themed in that it is the exact same color as the limited edition Wii Remote Plus that released with Skyward Sword. It’s meant to go along with that.

        • Linkfan99

          I know, and why are they even selling this now? The Wii U’s already out.

          • Tehlul

            What difference does that make?
            Sony still made games for the Playstation 2 well after the PS3’s
            Release

          • Linkfan99

            My point is, it would have sold out EVEN FASTER if the Wii U wasn’t out yet. (If that’s even possible)

          • Brandikins11

            No it wouldn’t of have. The nunchuk itself is free if you’re one of the few who has 900 coins. Also, it works on the Wii U, and the fact that the Wii isn’t the newest console anymore doesn’t really affect the people who play it, unless they buy a Wii U since it also plays Wii games anyway but still.

          • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

            exactly! i guess some people cant wait till Christmas if they havent gotten their wii u yet

          • Brandikins11

            I like how none of you seem to realize that it’s compatible with the Wii U, and that just because it’s been released doesn’t mean that people will stop playing Wii games altogether.

          • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

            i know that its compatible with the wii u and ill always play the wii but ya know……. it happens :D

    • Linkfan99

      And they’re selling this after the Wii U came out…

      • Brandikins11

        The Wii U is backward compatible with Wii hardware and software…

  • stupidsyrup97

    Uh guys, Nintendo said last night it will be available again after the New Year. I only have 95 coins to go.

  • SouperDuperD00d

    I got mine!

    • Brandikins11

      I ordered it like the hour it came out on Monday on my phone in school. It sold out in about 12-14 hours or so, but I didn’t want to risk waiting until I got home since I waited three freaking months for this thing. If it sold out again in front of me, I would’ve lost it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

    I’m glad they’re releasing it again in 2013. By that time, I will have the coins from my Wii U and its games, plus all the Club Nintendo codes from my girlfriend’s Wii games. Hopefully it’ll all add up to the 700 I need :P

    • Brandikins11

      You can always go through old Wii and DS games and redeem the codes if you haven’t yet. They never expire, that’s how I was able to save up while it was out of stock.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

        I already did that to secure Platinum status and that Power Star messenger bag last year :P
        Then again, I’m not sure if I got ALL of my DS games… hmm…

        • Brandikins11

          It also enabled me to gain gold and then platinum status a couple months ago.

  • wafflegoat

    Know what? I DON’T CARE ANYMORE!!! If I really feel like I need this, then eBay here I come.

  • Raphael Gouin

    I had enough coins to order it but decided not to. I’m waiting for new zelda stuff to come out on club nintendo (like posters or maybe even a SS statue?), ill get the nunchuk on ebay if i really feel like i need it.

    • Austin_NES

      They cost like 80 dollars, I already checked bro… Not worth it I’d just get it with the coins.

      • Brandikins11

        There aren’t many on there and the ones that are cost more than it’s worth.

        • Raphael Gouin

          I agree thats why i’ll probably never get it. It’s way too costy and its not even a zelda nunchuk its just gold, a triforce logo printed on it could have made the difference for me. Ill just be happy with my golden wiimote !

    • Brandikins11

      I snagged mine Monday as soon as it came back out. I did it on my phone in school, and I’m glad I did, since it wasn’t even out for a whole day before going out of stock again.

    • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

      thats smart

  • http://www.controlpaddesign.com/ TheMaverickk

    They already posted a pic saying this is going to be back in stock in January and for people to start saving those coins now.

    • Brandikins11

      Where? On the page for it on CN it doesn’t say anything about that. But I snagged mine so…

  • itsameluigi1290

    *Looks at article about golden Nunchuk coming back in stock* Oh, cool! If I can just get enough coi– *Sees this article* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Brandikins11

    My friend and I snagged ours Monday. It came out Monday, not yesterday like this article says. Yesterday morning my same friend that I reminded to get one told me that it sold out already. It only took about twelve hours, but after three months of waiting, I was insanely glad that I ordered it ASAP.

  • http://medlismessages.blogspot.com/ Heroine of Time

    It’s not astonishing. People saved up their money to be prepared when it came back.

    I bought mine on Monday evening. I’m very happy I finally got it. I missed it last time and I was very disappointed.

    • Brandikins11

      I got it Monday afternoon. I ordered it on my phone, because like you I’ve been waiting since August. And I had the same theory on why it sold out so quickly, because people like you and I had three months to save up. I checked it at least once a day for three months.

  • Tehlul

    looks like you guys Are oUtta luck

  • christburner

    just make a retail version already…..with a bad ass Hylian crest on it. not like anyone who got the rewards version wouldnt go out and buy it again….seriously who doesnt want a drawer full of gold nunchucks. id be all over it

  • Light

    Too be honest I wasn’t trying this time. That’s a too many coins for me. 900 shessh!

  • Linkfan99

    Lol:
    “The gold controller will simply be gold in color and will not contain any actual precious metals.”
    Naw, I NEVER would have guessed…

  • Linkfan99

    Why are they selling this now? The Wii U’s out now.

    • Tehlul

      Your comment takes the retard cake.
      The Wii U can use Wii accessories

  • Veronica Wheeler
