Nintendo adding locking clasp to Wiimote wrist straps?

Filed under:

We’ve already seen the Wiimote straps survive one revision, but now it seems that the oft criticized bands that keep your Wiimote from delving into your television screen (or window) could be seeing yet another improvement. Judging by an image showcasing what appears to be a brand new Wiimote wrist strap, Nintendo has added locking clasps in order to keep the controller snug around your wrist. Currently, there’s been no word on whether existing Wii owners will be receiving any free upgrades, but considering how few Wiinjury reports we’ve seen of late, hopefully this precaution is at least somewhat unwarranted.

P.S. -Any new Wii owners out there seeing this same surprise upon unboxing?
