I'll just leave Nintendo's report that states they don't use conflict materials here.

"Nintendo has a clear policy banning the use of conflict minerals* in any of our products. This can be found in the Nintendo CSR Procurement Guidelines. The Business Status Survey is used to confirm that all production partners are in compliance.
In fiscal year 2012, Nintendo issued a questionnaire to its relevant production partners to determine whether they have policies and business practices in place to avoid the use of conflict minerals. This survey was given to the companies among Nintendo's production partners who handle materials that might possibly contain tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold.
In addition, Nintendo conducts on-site inspections with each production partner to discuss the issue of conflict minerals with both supervisors and workers on the manufacturing floor.
Moving forward, Nintendo is committed to working with its production partners to formulate and implement the appropriate measures to ensure that conflict minerals are not used in our products.

*Conflict minerals mean the tungsten, tantalum, tin and gold that are extracted from the conflict-affected regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its nine adjoining countries, and are used as a financial source for armed groups or rebel forces who often commit crimes against humanity."
