TimothyNovember 30th, 2012 by Timothy


After only one day of being listed on Club Nintendo the exclusively special Gold Nunchuk has been completely sold out once again. Hopefully those of you planning to get one this time around managed to get your order accepted and are only needing to wait for the mailman to come to your home and hand you your hallowed package. If you were unfortunately one of the many that missed out then don’t be too upset; Nintendo of America has announced some great news! After the new year, Nintendo of America plans on bringing back the Gold Nunchuk for the third time which should please at least a few readers!

Discover some more details after the break!

Nintendo of America has announced via Twitter that the Gold Nunchuk will be reappearing once again at the beginning of 2013. Here’s the Twitter status:

“The Gold Nunchuk will return to #ClubNintendo after the New Year. Start saving your Coins!”

As Nintendo of America is encouraging, now is the time to save up those 900 coins needed in exchange for this valuable controller. Prepare early because you don’t want to miss out yet again and the Gold Nunchuk is a perfect addition alongside your special Zelda Gold Wii Remote. You can view the Gold Nunchuk by clicking here!

Did you manage to order a Gold Nunchuk before they sold out? If not, will you have enough coins before the next allotment comes in?  Is the Gold Nunchuk worth trying to order? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!

      Not as much as your english!

      • Spell Checker…

        *English*

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

        hey now! that was mean!

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

        That’s just not cool. Seriously. The whole world does not speak your language. You should figure out how to respect others who are making an attempt to learn it. They did not have to write in English; they only did that for our benefit. I’m really shocked that someone could be so inconsiderate and ignorant as to say that.

        • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

          I never said it did (Even though English is the most spoken language). And he kinda did have to write in English, or else there’d be no point in posting if no one could understand him.

          • Brandikins11

            Ignorance as in you knew he was from Mexico and criticized his english still.

          • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

            Hey, if you’re going to speak a language, speak it right so that people can understand you. I’m not going to go to Mexico with flawed Spainish; I want people to understand me.

          • Brandikins11

            Learning a language is hard, he was trying. Luckily he was still able to make his point across, he just had some trouble with grammar.

          • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

            English especially. But still. I have seen more atrocious English than his where you can’t understand them. His was not as bad but needs work, as a pointed out to him. It’s times like this I like to pull out my favorite pearl of wisdom from the comic strip Pearls Before Swine: The Internet tends to rudify all communication. It makes polite people sound rude, and rude people sound ruder.

          • Shaded_Archer

            You know you’re right (which is as rare as a giant rupee in zelda) but you don’t have the right to critisize. Plus, english is the HARDEST LANGUAGE ON EARTH TO LEARN. So, BACK OFF!!!

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

            If you knew all that – which could easily be mistaken as ignorance – then why say that? It’s so immature and rude. I’m sorry for responding to you like that (I keep getting into disagreements in these comments, and I hate being in this position XD), but it was incredibly stunning to me. I can’t see the point in attempting to ruin someone’s self-esteem. That’s a form of bullying, and it wasn’t even funny. It wouldn’t have been funny even if he’d been a native speaker.

            Personally, I have a TON of respect for someone who has learned another language. Perhaps part of this is because I’m a Spanish student myself, and I cannot imagine how utterly degrading it would have been if I’d posted a Spanish comment on a Spanish website in an attempt to communicate, and I’d just been teased by others for my poor skills. I commend him for trying. He has a perfectly good reason to make mistakes. He might still be learning – or maybe he used a translator, though that’s a stupid translator if it’s saying “sux”. It’s not like he’s purposefully spelling things wrong, or he’s some kind of English-speaking adult that should know all of this.

            Have you tried to learn another language? If not, then you have no excuse to tease him like that. If you have learned one, then that’s fantastic! But you honestly can’t claim that you NEVER said anything wrong. I probably wouldn’t have reacted so rashly if you had been kinder about it. But you just flat out denied him of any chance to apologize or redeem himself or anything.

            As a warning, I’ll probably not respond to any comments after this, because I really don’t want to prolong a disagreement and I’m beginning to fear you’re just a troll. Actually, I’m almost certain you’re a troll. So, I’ve said my thoughts, and I’ll leave you be. I really hope you’re a bit more thoughtful in the future. Have a nice day!

          • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

            So knowing things can easily be mistaken for ignorance (Loosely translated: not knowing things)? Fascinating. You hate getting into disagreements? That’s the point of the internet O_o. And because this is the internet, I’m pretty sure that his self-esteem wasn’t ruined. He probably doesn’t even realize I made that comment. Not bullying, INTERNET. Deal with it. He doesn’t need a “chance to apologize or redeem himself or anything,” since this is the internet. Even though he could, in poor English which would just be funny. Yes, I do find that funny. The point of the first comment, as you correctly guessed, was a troll. No harm intended, and I also find it funny that you took the time to write that whole series of posts (just run a word count) to defend him when he more than likely doesn’t care. I am thoughtful, IRL. Internet doesn’t matter. Have a nice day!

          • Ilya

            The point of the internet is open communication with the world’s masses. I’m sorry that you see it as a place to disagree instead of learn.

          • Ilya

            Just so you know, the most widely spoken language in the world is Chinese. Check yourself b4 you wreck yourself.

          • Tehlul

            …it’s mandarin.

          • Ilya

            Thank ya

          • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

            Actually, the most common FIRST language is Chinese. The most spoken (the one that most people learned after their first language and speak) is English.

          • Ilya

            You didn’t specify “first” language in your post. You just said “most spoken language”. Which is not English. Lol.

      • itsameluigi1290

        …He misspelled one word? That’s actually a common abbreviation anyway.

  • Demise

    I’m sick of it! Aren’t they gonna release it in Europe, ever? First, it was only in Japan. Then, they released it in North America. And now, there’s gonna e a 3rd release there, it’s pretty much unlimited in Japan (as far as I know) and it’s nowhere near coming to Europe. And what with the Symphony and all, it seems like Nintendo is abandoning Europe or something…. DX

    • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

      Just grab one with your dark portal. Or create one out of dark energy. e.e

    • wafflegoat

      I feel your pain, being in England really sucks sometimes :'(

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

      Hey remember this;

      http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/24025

      Yeah we in North America still haven’t gotten it. It sucks that prizes across each countries aren’t uniform, but … come on, it’s pretty much one of the few really worth while things to ever come to the North American Club Nintendo.

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

      i agree with TheMaverickk! Nintendo isnt abandoning Europe its just that one continent gets this thing and another that, ya know?

    • Cucco Link

      I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens…

  • TheRizardon

    Suddenly sold out. Again.

  • Derek

    I really wish they would make it available for purchase.

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

      ahhhhh ikr! but this is how business works! itll probably be avaliable 1 or 2 more times before its avaliable for purchase

      • Nope

        Never. Ever. Going to happen.

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

          we are never ever ever getting back together! :D sorry i had to

      • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

        Nope, no one would buy it for $900 (1 coin is the equivalent of 1 dollar).
        This way they get more money and keep it rare; just like the gold
        wiimote it pairs with was (Ended a sentence with a preposition there;
        but prepositions aren’t something I end sentences with.).

  • Nikki

    I agree with Derek. There’s no way I’ll earn enough coins to get one, but then again, I also don’t have the gold Wii remote either.

  • Hylia

    Totaling up the coins I got from Christmas of last year and my birthday gave me around 600 coins.
    Getting over 900 by 2013? LOL, NOPE.
    Yay for spray paint!

    • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

      Just go to GameStop and pull the codes out of the used games. The staff there is fine with it.

      • Brandikins11

        And you can go through your old games if you haven’t.

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

      I had less than that – around 600 – the first time the Gold Nunchuck came around. I raised 900 in the time they gave us without even spending money. Ask your friends. They gave me all the coins I needed. I’ve also heard you can get codes out of the used games in GameStop, but I was far too shy to do that. XD

      But, yeah, spray paint works too. :P

      • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

        I asked my friends, but they threw out the codes becuase that’s how much they cared about them. :P But you can’t sell a spray-painted controller for $90 now, and more later on.

      • Brandikins11

        I just went through old games and that gave me more than enough to order mine Monday. I hope it comes tomorrow.

      • itsameluigi1290

        I… I DON’T HAVE SPRAY PAINT! WAAAAAAH!

  • Austin_NES

    Seriously why don’t they just sell them in stores for the Christmas seasons and manufacture them early so people can get them at Christmas time… THINK NINTENDO OF AMERICA!!!!!!!

    • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

      Because no one would buy it for $900 (1 coin is the equivalent of 1 dollar). This way they get more money and keep it rare; just like the gold wiimote it pairs with was (Ended a sentence with a preposition there; but prepositions aren’t something I end sentences with.).

      • Brandikins11

        Uhh, I highly doubt 1 coin equals one dollar. That would make every item on there insanely overpriced.

        • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

          Buy a Wii game. MSRP, $50. Coins you get for registering it? 50. Nintendo selects games: $20. Coins you get for registering them: 20. Same with DS and Wii U and everything else.

  • Brandikins11

    I ordered mine Monday and might get it in the mail tomorrow. At least this time around they actually announced a date and are only taking a few weeks to bring it back. From August until now, it was gone for three months, and didn’t get an announced return date until a few days before Monday.

  • IAMSYNTAXERROR

    I waited til midnight of the 26th thinking it would be available for order exactly on the 26th. It didn’t show up until the middle of the day which I had to go to my schools computer lab to order it.

    Now I have to save up for those Yonkey Dong posters…
    :D

    • Brandikins11

      I did it on my phone during lunch in school.

  • Dark Majora

    i honestly would rather pay mone then search through club nintendo and stuff

    • Dark Majora

      oops i meant money not mone

    • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

      You can. $90 on eBay.

  • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

    Got mine today. From Washington to Florida in 5 business days? Surprising. By USPS? O_O

    • Brandikins11

      My friend and I got our’s on Saturday and we’re in Colorado.

  • itsameluigi1290

    Hm. Well, I never really thought it was all that great. It’s cool and all, but I don’t think most people would be focused more on the controller than the TV screen.
