Gold Nunchuk Has Sold Out

DaveyJanuary 15th, 2013 by Davey

We all knew it would happen; it was only a matter of time. The Club Nintendo exclusive gold nunchuk has once again sold out. Whether the quick sell out was due to extremely low stock, large demand, or both is not known.

None of you were probably surprised. The last time the nunchuk sold very quickly, and the description for this round included the note that quantities were limited. Some might just be amazed that the accessory sold for as long as it did.

Hit the jump for more!

It’s been less than a week since our post announcing the return of the nunchuk, and now it’s already unavailable. Hopefully, for those who’re unable to grab it both times, Nintendo will realize the popularity and restock for at least another time. Or they could start selling the gold nunchuk at stores for regular currency.

What I don’t understand is why there are limited quantities. Nintendo doesn’t directly make money from the stuff people get at Club Nintendo. My only thoughts are that the Big N is trying to drive sales of games by offering rewards such as this rare, golden accessory. We all know that the 3DS system is only being supported by the sales of games. But who knows; marketing is a complicated business.

What are your thoughts? Did you get a gold nunchuk this time around or did you have one from before? Let us know in the comments!

    aww man i was gonna order it today

    • +Skyward Strike+

      REALLY?! YOU HAD 900 COINS?

      • the hero of shadow

        yes i kinda have like 1200 since i kinda been saving them up

  • Chris

    I got it as soon as it was available, I missed it twice when it came out in 2012 because I didn’t have enough coins. There was NO way I was gonna miss it this time :) I hope they don’t manufacture all that more since it is a rare item to have to complete the set with the golden Wii mote from Skyward Sword. I feel like a collector :)

      I love mine, but I doubt they’ll put it in stores. The other two gold parts in America both came with games, so all of the gold pieces are special by not being available to the general public, but through game bundles or reward sites.

    Just disassemble a white nunchuk, sand the gloss finish off. Paint gold. Reassemble. Done.

    Plus with decal printer paper you coud easily add a triforce decal in a darker gold color on the main body of the nunchuck, or a Zelda anniversary crest. Sure its not official but it would be fun to do and it would mean more to the one who painted it.

  • jorden1506

    it sucks that they dont have it in the netherlands but they had a golden wheel and that one i bought

    • Someone

      It is indeed too bad that it’s not available over the whole world.
      I’m also Dutch so I’m really disappointed about this.
      Maybe Nintendo got the note on how much demand there is for this Nunchuk, so all we can do is hope that they get some new in stock and make it more available.for other parts of the world.

          Ok, one, I’m a girl, and two..
          that’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, performing a facepalm.

          • Cmaster

            I’ve never seen star trek :(

  • zombie_eat_flesh

    Here’s an idea:

    They could have bundled it with the gold Wii Remote Plus.

    • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

      Do you know how much more expensive that would have made Skyward Sword? ‘Cause that was the only way to get the gold Wii Remote Plus. And it was already $70 for a game; Zelda nerds wouldn’t pay that much (Or would they? I mean, people buy the gold nunchuck for $90 on eBay. Stupid Nintendo. Do more marketing research). But I don’t mind anyway, becuase that makes my gold nunchuck both cheaper (got it for free) and more valuable (Can always sell it for $90+ if I need to). And anyway, where’s the fun in collecting a non-rare thing?

  • Silent-Hero

    actually, your “the gold nunchuk returns” article was a day late. and it sold out 2 days afterward it was re-stocked. so this article is also, late.

    • Brandikins11

      Most of the stuff they post is just things like fan art, but the things like this that are actual events of sorts are always late.

  • Emma Mix

    Dur.

  • itsameluigi1290

    Huh? It finally sold out? That took longer than I thought…

  • Tetra

    Totally!!

  • Silent-Hero

    and.. i just checked club nintendo.. it is to be never released again.. ;-; WHY. i just got enough coins to finally get it. i wish nintendo would release it one more time :(
