Club Nintendo heads down under

Aussie readers, take note of this day. It is one that shall go down in history for you if you're the kind of bloke or sheila who likes to own odd and wonderful things, like the Game & Watch collection or that Exclamation Warriors game. Club Nintendo is officially launching in Australia next Thursday, alongside the release of Mario Kart Wii.

This means that you fine readers in Australia and New Zealand will be able to redeem points from the games you buy and use them towards goodies in the Club Nintendo catalog. The idea of being able to alone gets us all hot and bothered, so we can imagine how excited you all must feel right now. No longer will you need to box kangaroos and wrestle deadly gators for kicks.

A Hot Summer Yoshi DS for the cold winter

We do love our limited-edition DS systems -- even (maybe especially) when they're Phat. There's nothing like the combination of out-of-production hardware and extremely rare colorways to drive our interest and eBay prices. This "Hot Summer" Yoshi DS was part of a series of six wireframe-emblazoned systems available only in the summer of 2005, and only to Club Nintendo members. Only 200 of these Yoshi systems were produced.

And now it's available to anyone with $500. If you truly want to be rebellious and rock the Phat, this is totally the way to do it. By spending a ridiculous amount of money.

You! can buy Exclamation Warriors! YES!

The multiplayer-only shouting-based game Zekkyou Senshi Sakeburein (Exclamation Warriors Sakeburein) was made available by Nintendo only to Club Nintendo members who bought enough games to earn the points for it. Retailer YesAsia has now made the game available to a slightly larger group: people with $36. Take that, exclusivity!

We don't know how they did it; maybe they opened all the games in their warehouse and got the Club Nintendo codes out. We also don't care, because the end result is awesome. If you've got a few friends who like to shout in Japanese while playing video games (uh, so, if you're a Naruto fan), then this Power Rangers/Super Sentai spoof may be for you! Or if you like things that are normally hard to obtain, obviously.

NoE forums are shut down also

Like Nintendo's NSider forums, those at the official European site are getting shut down, as well. In the interest of, we assume, sites like ours, NoE has decided to close shop on the forums for good and, like, will be re-launching with a new layout and features aimed at pleasing fans.

Until then, might as well tell your friends to head on over here.

New puzzle from Nintendo: How to get this puzzle from Nintendo

Nintendo showed off some new giveaways for Japanese Club Nintendo members, and we thought we could all wallow in our misery together. We all buy so many Nintendo games in the U.S. and Europe, and what do we get for it? The games? Bah. Occasional stylus sets and that one time we got a Zelda collection don't make up for the fact that we have no chance at any of the awesome stuff that Japanese game buyers can get.

In addition to the previously-mentioned Exclamation Warriors game, Club Nintendo members can now choose from an assortment of DS Lite and DS card cases, a canvas Wiimote box (which we don't mind missing out on that much) and this awesome star-shaped Ten Billion Barrel puzzle.

It's a new Club Nintendo-themed version of a puzzle invented by Gunpei Yokoi and released by Nintendo in 1980, and it would certainly look nice on our desk. Just another limited-edition item that shows Nintendo's appreciation for its customers ... in Japan.
