Images are starting to surface that Nintendo has replaced the Wiimote strap again. Having reinforced the part of the Wii strap which caused mayhem back in the more innocent time of ’06, Nintendo has apparently now fixed the part which wraps around our wrist by adding a locking clip. Now you can get that extra snug fit and lock it in.
Although this redesign might make you think it’s time to go back to flailing about with Wiimote in hand using all the force one can muster, we continue to urge restraint and caution. We’d love to confirm this new strap information, but Nintendo’s PR team was not in the office today. Hopefully we’ll get better images next week.
