When Wii sports Released for the Wii in 2006, it made headlines around the world for encouraging people to get off the couch. The same game was also previously known for wrecking a number of TVs, and while we’d like to refrain from doing so, there seems to be a real chance of it happening again with its upcoming release nintendo switch sports, due this week.
With this in mind, Nintendo gave a timely reminder to exercise caution when playing the latest entry in the series. The company’s Japanese social accounts shared some warnings about being aware of the space around you and your TV.
Here’s a rough Google translation to remind adults to see where they’re swinging, monitor kids when they’re playing the game, and make sure nobody hits the TV with a Joy-Con. Nintendo also wants to make sure you use the wrist strap so the Joy-Con doesn’t fly off on you.
“[For parents] For your own safety, please accompany your child while playing Nintendo Switch Sports. Please be careful not to hit the children playing together or the Joy-Con on the TV.”
“Besides, when you play Nintendo Switch Sports, attach the strap to Joy-Con and lock it, then tighten the stopper to keep the strap from coming off your wrist and press firmly.”
Will you exercise some caution, or at least wear an armband, when playing Nintendo Switch Sports later this week? Tell us below.
