If you would like to request a Wii Remote Jacket, please start by completing the information form below.

If you have already submitted a request and want to check on the status of your order, please click here.

Latin American users - Please click here for information for your region.

Please note, we will begin shipping Wii Remote Jackets on October 15th, 2007. Once your Wii Remote Jacket has shipped, you will receive a confirmation email from Nintendo. After that point, it may still take another 5 to 10 days for delivery depending on your location. Please do not contact Nintendo regarding your Wii Remote Jacket order until after that time period has passed.

    I guess it's useful or something, but this feels so dumb. I'm still convinced that the only reason stuff like this and the wrist strap were made was because some people are dumb, and a normal human would never get hurt or break stuff playing Wii.

    That said, I do use the wrist strap, and might try this out.

    As long as it's easy to remove it and switch out the batteries (unlike the third parties sleve things), I'll probably order a couple. Might as well.

    Ordered 4. It must be easier to replace the batteries than my current silicon jacket. It's free, so it's worth a shot.

    These things are unnecessary and ridiculous. However, they are also free.

    I have already ordered four.

    I ordered four wiimote straps. I only had one wiimote. Is there a word to describe how people will always accept something that is free no matter how much he doesn't actually want the thing?

    I'm not sure, but it certainly makes me think of Jon Stewart's favorite group to make fun of.
    That he's a part of. That left Egypt a while back.

    O, stereotypes.

    In other news, I'm sure someone will still find out a way to hurt either themselves or the wiimote, even with this thing on.

    They'll have a free giveaway like 2 months from now, or something even more silly and protective.

    I assume it would go under a type of mental illness then. You know like how people steal stuff they don't need. He takes tons of free stuff he doesn't need, same concept right?

    I'd order extra wiimote straps b/c they can go on other things - cameras, keychains, whathaveyou. Seems pretty useful. These things however... did it really need such a bulbous head? I'm not sure I need to be playing MP3 with a big vibrating dildo.

    The wiimote does feel a tad on the small side in my hands. I'm gonna grab some of these and hope that helps.

    It crashed when I submitted my order before I could put in shipping info (but I was logged in) and then when I tried again it said they had already been ordered. So I think I'm getting 4.

    I'm getting 4 wrist straps, too.

    Assuming my order went through, I ordered four as well, and I have two wiimotes. If nothing else, I can give the other two to my brother-in-law.

    What should be interesting is; last time, with the wrist-straps, I ordered four, and they ended up sending me eight.

    I'm assuming they're now including these, uh, jackets with new Wiis and wiimotes, so there's no reason to get more of them than the wiimotes you already have.
