Earlier this week we showed you the awesome Pikmin keychains available to Europe for a mere 1700 start points. Today Nintendo made a Pikmin tote bag available to Club Nintendo America that has a series of Pikmin on it with the phrase, “Pikmin tote, attack, multiply, become snacks.” It’s certainly cute, but I don’t know if it’s worth the 400 coins being asked. I’d rather have the keychains.

What do you think?

  • papermariodude101

    Still haven’t gotten that SNES classic controller like EVERY OTHER COUNTRY.

    • Orto

      I am a fanof nintendo and i need all that is in the club nintendo data base. Only then can i track down all of the fony fans and wave my mario hat them!

    • Ducked

      You’re not missing out on anything, the controller half works.

  • Zombie Boy

    Aw, damnit! And I was so pleased with my keyring too πŸ™

  • Nintedward

    This is just like the bag I use to transport my Wiiu in except mine doesn’t have Pikmin on it πŸ™ ! I wrap it in towels and then shove it one of these. I tried a rucksack but I could here it bouncing around…

    • Decker Shado

      I toted mine along in a backpack a couple times.. after the first time, I learned wrap it in something. >_< Poor Wii U deluxe has a scratch across the top of the unit now.. Oh well, it still works beautifully. It's just not that beautiful as it works.

      • mine has a ton of scratches… I love nintendo, but I hate the finish they put on stuff…

  • Marcus Navarro

    I’d get it, but Kirby’s Epic Yarn is still the best date night gaming gift of ALL TIME!

  • Dodge Pribyl

    I believe that line is from Ai no Uta. I love that song.

  • SonicLucario

    Well its pretty awesome to see Nintendo showing a lot of love for the series πŸ™‚

  • Mochlum

    Just give us those adorable Pikmin plushies! πŸ™

  • Adrian

    Can I get this as my platinum reward instead of the crappy..i mean non useful prizes that they offered? That would be sweet.

    • rp17

      The platinum prizes weren’t that good. Where am I supposed to put 3 posters anyway? But why would I trade those for a giant, rainbow man-purse?

      • Adrian

        Haha, I’m just saying, if this were an option I would choose it over the others. At least this has a practical use, and seems more collectible than the other stuff.

      • Jon

        there was the zelda soundtrack from Majoras mask…..

        • rp17

          Just my opinion but i don”t like Zelda.

  • Elitepwnsface

    Its cute

  • RoboticLink

    I prefer the keychain

  • Steven_Segal


    *Checks Club Nintendo balance, 120 points*

    • Orto

      Steven i knew you would abuse the anti moped rule lol

    • Fred

      hurry and buy several games and it’s yours. You get extra coins if you buy digitally

      • Steven_Segal

        Nah, I’m not interested. I would be if it was some Wind Waker stuff

  • I got the Nintendo character cloth box from a few months ago and I think it’s a better reward than this. I really wanted a keychain. πŸ™

    • incoherent1

      Maybe you could arrange some kind of trade with one of our friends in Europe to get a keychain (I’d offer myself but am also stateside)!

    • So did I… I liked the keychains. The messenger bag they had for mario’s birthday was amazing though. Use it for books everyday

  • Orto

    Ye have that fony. Your ps4 is crap compared to our club nintendo.

  • RoboticLink

    They should get us some wind waker awards soon, maybe some ganondorf toilet paper

    • Magnus Eriksson

      wind waker stylus pen πŸ™‚

      • Zombie Boy

        Welcome back! How was Greece?

    • Mr. J

      I want a mariokart trophy or flag, or maybe some zelda action figures.

  • TrueWiiMaster

    It’s not bad, but I’d never use it. Those keychains on the other hand…

  • NintendoNoob

    I WANT THAT!!! Too bad my Club nintendo account has been deactivated for some reason

    • Christopher Acuna

      Stop spamming the MiiVerse with lewd pictures!

      • NintendoNoob

        I don’t, it got deactivated when I ordered a Nintendo Tee-Shirt

        • Christopher Acuna

          Well that makes no sense whatsoever.

          • NintendoNoob

            I know right?

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    I have two thousands coins and I never used in my life. Time to pick up those promotions.

    • Fred

      get the games!!!

      • Yousif Alromaithi

        I know. I did today. But I am getting this too.

        • Fred

          Nice!!! There are now 4 different games that just became availiable today if you’re interested

  • Christopher Acuna

    My Machismo says no to this reward lol. I love the picture they have of the dude wearing the Tote bag. lol

    Would have loved one of them key chains. Any Euro fans wanna trade rewards?

  • david jarman

    Sweet, I can carry my wii u in it when I go over to my brother-in-law’s house…what? Don’t judge!

  • everyone

    Might have to get this. We’ll just wait to see what games they put up next week for the month.

  • Wii Uoops!

    Hey look I get a murse

  • Ducked

    As a guy, I wouldn’t be carrying this around…

    • NintendoNoob

      I would LOL

      • Ducked

        Lol, that’s a die hard pikmin fan there…

        • NintendoNoob

          HEY! It’s not being gay it’s called being fabulous! πŸ˜€

          • Ducked

            I wouldn’t say fabulous, the design is a bit dull colored.

  • Fred

    The only time I’ve used my coins for anything that wasn’t a game was that Gold Nunchuk and sometimes I regret it so I would never waste 400 coins (that is 2 or more games worth) on a canvas bag. This month I used some coins and got Star Fox 64

    • Doctors Tardis

      I desperately want them to bring the gold nunchuck back. I missed it last time

      • Jon

        if they bring it back, I can get 2 more. lol then I’ll have 4 πŸ˜›

  • CharmanderRulz

    How smart, they used the translated lyrics of the Pikmin band ‘Strawberry Flower’ song as the text! Most will not notice but that was a nice touch. (^-^)

  • mr.Goodbar

    LOL I’m getting Pikmin 3 but I’ll be damned if anybody seen me swinging that gay bag around.

    • jay

      Dude i want THAT BAG.

      Part of being mature is ignoring the kids who would call this “Gheeeyy”

      • mr.Goodbar

        That takes away the cool factor along with its manhood. The ladies would not approve unless you just want to be best friends mr.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          If a girl was truly in love with you. Then they wouldn’t care what you like. They would love you, for you. If someone can’t respect who you are. Then forget about them.

          • mr.Goodbar

            Wouldn’t want a girl who’d take a pansy. It wouldn’t look good being a leader of a brotherhood either. Sends all the wrong signals. Then when you pick up your kid at school, your sons friends would be like look your dad is carrying a purse! Hahaha! There’s nothing mature about doing that. Kids judge best and nothing would convince them that that’s ok. They’ll just stay quiet if you try to tell them something. They’ll just say uhh ok.

  • Lassassino

    Its fine for carrying groceries but that’s it

    • Marcus Navarro

      Maybe in Europe.



  • Tim van Broekhoven

    I just ordered the strawberry keychain πŸ™‚ I had just enough stars after my birthday yesterday!

  • Jon

    I’d rather the key chain……

  • Castamere

    That bag is just too floral to be carried around. I’d much rather have the keychain.

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    It’s official: I hate Nintendo of Europe and its Club Nintendo rewards :/

    The Keychain’s cool and everything, but…everything else is utter BS. We don’t get half as good rewards as you guys in the US or Japan. We don’t get the opportunity to get (good) games for some stars. We don’t get things like the awesome Platin Membership stuff. All we get are stupid stickers, NDS game cases for way too much stars, and that’s pretty much it.

    I’m happy (and jealous), that you’ve got that bag, but this is the very first time I wish I’d live in the States πŸ™‚

    • Mochlum

      But you guys got those plush pikmins. I so want them…

    • Jon

      are you serious?you guys have a thing on there that was a platinum reward from 2010, something which you can no longer get here. Plus you can we wii points cards along with cleaning cloths and the keychains, Better notebooks (we just have the boo one) while we get DS cases, Mario, more Mario, random greeting cards. The best thing we got is the posters and maybe the wii remote holders which they are not offering the black one anymore.

    • Doctors Tardis

      I want like, half of the stuff in the europe club nintendo, and nothing in the us one. My coins just sit waiting for something worthwhile. I’d love the mario statue or the 3dsxl dock.

      • Jon

        same, the posters were the only thing I wanted and I got them all, both zelda sets before they disappeared. but I am now sitting on 1860 coins.

  • Ice Climbers

    Tomorrow will be the longest day of the summer for those of you in North America.

    • Jon

      um… the longest day is July 21st….

      • I think he was referring to waiting all day Saturday for Pikmin 3 to be released on Sunday!!

    • If you a referring to waiting for Pikmin 3 to be released then yes it will. I pre-ordered mine and was lucky enough to have it delivered today two days early. Probably because there is no delivery on Sunday and I purchased the game through and if you are a Silver level RewardZone and GamersClub member you are guaranteed delivery of all pre-orders on launch day.

  • yoyodawgletmesnufflethatyuffle

    I’ve got 4000 points left so I’ll buy it for the fact its pikmin

  • IT’S HERE!!! Hope Nintendo does not think I pirated the game because I got it two days early because I am gonna play it now since it is kind of rainy outside!!

    • LOL I cannot register the game because it is not released in the US yet officially

      • Andrew Chambers

        That happened when I went to the midnight launch to MH3U.

    • Nintedward

      It’s a top game. Ive finished it!

    • jay


      • Playing it now but I cannot post to MiiVerse because NOA community is not set up yet for that game. You can take pictures of your Pikmin and they stare at you like a loyal puppy dog.

        • There’s 10 hours of my gameplay right there

  • Steve Austin

    Everything on Club Nintendo is crap. I don’t think it’s worth the time to even register the games. Another failure from Nintendo if you ask me.

    Almost a year later and still no Wii U DLC on Club Nintendo…

    • Gotallofthem

      Yeah cause free stuff, is not worth it. You do realize its free right?

      • Jon

        well, it is fine however they need to update it more often…. I have gotten everything I have wanted on their, all 4 poster sets that were offereded, deck of cards, Hanafuda cards, I got two gold nunchucks when they came out and all the screensavers….even some of the eshop games they offered…and I still have 1860 coins just sitting there doing nothing because there is nothing else even worth it. The problem I am having is that there is hardly any updates and additions to it since they started doing it except for limited time offers.

  • Doctors Tardis

    1500 coins and not a damn thing I want in the store. Bring back the Gold Nunchuck, or an SNES classic controller. Or a N64 classic controller

  • Landonus

    I just ordered this thing, my girlfiend is going to love it… whenever it gets here. Thanks for the heads up WiiUdaily!

  • brian

    Yeah, I just wasted all my coins on another reversible pouch like three days before this.

  • ETeach

    Just picked it up. How could I not?
