Wii Wriststrap Recall

December 15, 2006

Important Information Concerning Wii Remote wrist straps

Dear Nintendo Customer,

We wish to advise you that Nintendo announced today that we are offering free replacement Wii Remote wrist straps to consumers. These straps are thicker than the original wrist straps provided at launch.

Your customers can seek replacement wrist straps in two ways:

• Contact a 1-800 number: 1-800-859-4519

• Visit our website at

We also wanted to let you know that all Wii Remotes packaged with Wii Hardware in your inventory should already have the new, thicker wrist straps attached.

Wii Remote Accessories shipped by Nintendo to retail on or after December 18 also should include the new, thicker wrist strap.

If you have any questions, please contact your Nintendo Account Manager.

Nintendo of America Inc.
