Nintendo, Why Must You Be So Cruel?

Nintendo, Why Must You Be So Cruel?

This is a plush Yoshi doll. It is very cute. Not just cute, it's painfully adorable. This is the level of cuteness that makes me cringe with something that feels like genuine pain. So what's the problem?

It's being released for Club Nintendo Europe. That means I am going to have to go to incredible lengths to figure out how to cuddle with this Yoshi. I am determined to make that happen, though, which is the real part of this whole situation that drives me crazy. From Wii U Daily's report

Meanwhile, the Club Nintendo in America still has yet to get any new merchandise this year. In fact, we haven't seen anything noteworthy since the announcement of the Luigi's Mansion statue that went on sale. Bummer.

Come on, Nintendo, don't you think that there are SOME people in the U.S. who want a disgustingly cute Yoshi stuffed animal too?

Why are you doing this to me?!?!?!

    is this from the american site? or just a copy-paste job.

    whatever, i just ordered that yoshi from the australian club.

    LOL Australia is worse! We haven't got anything in years! D:

      You clearly are not a member or fail to check for items.

    This article may be relevant in the US, but not at all here in Australia.

    You can probably hit Nintendo World in New York to get a similar quality one... I do remember seeing one there while I was visiting from Australia. Didn't have the apple but was still super-awesome..

    ..Ended up getting a Boo and Bowser instead... took up half my suitcase...

    You should see the Australian Club Nintendo Store... its a joke

    I checked and it's available in Australia for 2800 stars so I'm getting one!

      Oh that is awesome, I have a pile of stars and nothing to get!

    HA, you want to talk about cruel? The AU club Nintendo is pretty much always stocked with dull products compared to the US one, stationary, handkerchiefs, shoelaces etc. The only decent thing was the Game and Watch DS game and now that's gone too.

    It's good to see us finally get something good for a change, I'll have to dig up some of my codes, I hate filling out that stupid survey every time though.

      And then they're insanely expensive on your nintendo points.

      Same, but that is why they are giving us the points.

    Anyone having trouble entering pin codes?

    I have scratched out two, one for NSMB U and the other for Wind Waker HD and have entered them in only to be told that the codes have expired and cannot be redeemed.

    The expiry for both codes is 30/05/2016 and 04/04/2017 and they were both scratchy codes so they could not be invalid.

    Anyone had any problems like this before?

      I've also had problems with codes but only from games I've imported. I'm not sure what to do about it though.

      Scratchy ones are UK codes, and the folding ones are AU codes. Some UK codes do work on the AU store, but first party games like, for example, Wind Waker don't. That's why ozgameshop have a disctinction between and .

        Ahhh cool, i did not know the scratchy ones were from the UK i got some of them to work just not those two i mentioned.

    I was about to order one, but then I did the sums: 2800 points is 12 full price games + surveys; I can buy a Yoshi toy (admittedly without the apple) for less than $20.

    I'd rather save the points in case something really unique shows up again. Like that sweet Luigi's Mansion diorama I grabbed earlier in the year.
