There Will Be No Gold Wii Nunchuk

Illustration for article titled There Will Be No Gold Wii Nunchuk

There will be a gold Nintendo Wii Remote Plus coming out late this year. Nintendo plans to bundle some of them with the new Zelda, Skyward Sword, and sell others separately.


But what about a gold nunchuk? You'll need some sort of Wii nunchuk attachment plugged into your gold (or white or black) Motion-Plus-enabled Wii Remote in order to play this new Zelda. Shouldn't there be a gold version to match?


There won't be one. "We looked into it," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-AIme said. "It was a little more bling than I think the average consumer was looking for."

There was also a gold Wii classic controller released last year in conjunction with Activision's revival of GoldenEye. Poor, Nunchuk. So left out...

The real question is, WHY is nunchuck so expensive, if it is just:

-1 analog stick

-2 buttons

-30 cm of cable

-An accelerometer

-A special plug
