Every year in the past Club Nintendo has offered an exclusive present to Platinum Members, and they are usually announced at the end of August/early September. I've bought a ton of JP-only Nintendo games since I moved to Japan in 2005 which helped me become a Platinum member of Club Nintendo each year. In the last 2 years I've gotten Tingle's Balloon Fight and the Super Famicom Classic Controller for Wii (which is AWESOME) but I haven't heard a WORD about what this year's free present(s) will be.

Anyone know what's up?

On a semi-related note, I'm tempted to use my points to order Game & Watch Collection 2 for DS, but I'm wondering if it'll end up on sale used for under 2500 yen like all the other Club Nintendo "exclusives".

Has anyone here ordered/played it?

They FINALLY announced this year's bonuses:


-A Golden Wii Wheel
-A Plush Mario Hat
-A Nintendo Calendar (as usual)

Platinum Members can choose one of the 3, Gold Members can only get the Calendar.

I can't decide between the Wii Wheel and the Hat!
I could actually USE the Wii Wheel, but it might be easy to find one on the secondary market next summer...then again, the hat probably wouldn't even fit me....hmmmm.
