Nightly News Roundup

Golden Nunchuck NOT coming to the West

Golden Nunchucks are available in Japan and Australia but according to a reply from Nintendo to a fan question, they will not be heading to the United States and Canada. Zelda fans, stateside, will not get the chance to display their sword skills with both a gold remote (Included with the limited edition bundle of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword) and nunchuck.

Hope lies in Nintendo offering the controller via Club Nintendo.

And trademarks keep marching in…

Hot on the heels of the news of Nintendo trademarking ‘Super Mario 4’, two more trademarks have come through the pipeline. ‘Voice Forum’ and ‘Step Forum’ are the newest discoveries. Whether they are for 3DS or Wii U is unknown.

We can derive from their names that Nintendo is hard at work on providing stronger online connections between their beloved fans and the company. Perhaps ‘Voice Forum’ will be a place where Nintendo fans can submit ideas to the Big N on what games they would like to see in the future.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is headed to 3DS in three months time. Fans who pre-order the music game will receive an oversized stylus and seventeen stickers to go along with it, when they pick up their copy. The stickers, as with the game, contain characters from Final Fantasy’s rich history.

Starting with Final Fantasy and ending with Final Fantasy XIII, players can identify themselves with their series favorites.

Participating retailers are to be announced.

3DS returns to Amazon

Apparently, at least several months have passed since consumers were last able to purchase a 3DS directly from Amazon. The system was under review by the online retailer for unspecified reasons.

Gamers can now purchase one for $169.
