Bandai of Japan has announced that it is recalling 135,816 of its 'Let's TV Play' consoles due to overheating issues with its cables. The company has already recieved 17 reports of smoke coming from the affected cables, as well as one account of a cable causing a burn to a child.

'Let's TV Play' is a range of consoles released in Japan that plug directly into a TV, and contain one game, usually based on television programs such as Naruto or Dragon Ball Z. They have been on the market in Japan for a year, selling 173,816 units.

It is also known that a few hundred units of the range have been sold overseas. However, these consoles are battery-powered only so are not affected by the recall.
