Nintendo Presents New Wii Remote Jacket–for Free!
Nintendo just announced in Japan that it will start packaging the Wii game consoles from October in Japan with Wii remote controllers covered with a special silicon filled “cushion” around it. This is in answer to high demand from consumers that have complained the controller is a little to small to grip comfortably and for those who keep dropping their controllers and banging them on other people and the wall.
The jacket can also be received free if you already have a Wii and live in Japan. Check back for updates as I check to see if the jacket will be made available in other markets.
The jacket is going to be available in other markets as well. They have a form that you can fill out if you live in the US/CAN here:
As of now, no other country sites seemed to have it available yet. However, as this is seen as an important answer to customer needs, I am sure it will find its way to other markets.
Remember the key word is FREE!
