Nintendo Releases Gold Nunchuck to Compliment Gold Zelda Wii Remote

on December 14, 2011 10:15 AM

You know that golden Zelda-themed Wii Remote that came with your special edition Skyward Sword bundle? Have you caught yourself staring at it, thinking how ugly it looks paired with a regular-ol’ white nunchuck?

Nintendo has answered your aesthetic prayers. The prayers coming from Japan, anyway.

The company has released a gold Wii nunchuck along with a gold Wii classic controller for Japan Club Nintendo members. Earlier this year, head honcho of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime poo-pooed the idea of a gold nunchuck, stating it was “a little more bling than [he thought] the average consumer was looking for.” Seriously, Regginator? We love that crap!

Again, North American members are left out of this one. Maybe if you’re really good the Regginator will fly down your chimney and pop one into your stocking for Christmas.
