  • This controller is themed around Mario, a character from the Mario franchise.
  • This controller was redeemable through the Club Nintendo reward program in Japan with 500P, roughly the price of 10 games.
  • Here’s the original listing from Club Nintendo from which you could order the Mario GameCube controller:
  • To confirm the purchase to their customers, Club Nintendo sent a white and blue certificate ahead of the delivery of the prize. This certificate was often lost, and so a full set is hard to come by. See the certificate with its translation provided by Shairn below.
  • It was also available in Europe through the VIP 24:7 reward program for 3500 stars, roughly the price of 14 games.
  • It was released in August 10th 2005 in Belgium, but it was available earlier in other countries, as early as July 11th 2005. My main source is a belgian forum thread.
