This piece of news must come as a shock to the majority of readers living on the North American continent as it seems the Nintendo offices in charge of the United States and Canada are not interested in releasing the Golden Nunchuck to the countries in the region. We received an email this week from someone named Ponkool4 who says he wrote to Nintendo about this subject and the answer they gave him was not positive.
You can read Nintendo’s apparent reply to the question about the release of the Golden Nunchuck after the break.
“As amazing as it would be, I’m sorry to say that there are no plans to produce a gold Wii Nunchuk to go along with your gold Wii Remote. While I know this is not what you were hoping to hear, I’ll be sure to pass along your interest in a gold Wii Nunchuk.”
It is a bit unusual that both Japan and Australia have the opportunity to acquire a Golden Nunchuck to match their Gold Wii MotionPlus controller, but the Americas are left out in the cold.
Are you disappointed in Nintendo’s decision to not produce the Golden Nunchuck for North Americans? Does this rejection make you want to petition for it to be put on Club Nintendo? Would you buy one if they were available in your country? Let us know your disappointment and other thoughts in the comments below!
