Nintendo’s New Wii Zapper Targets Fun

First Wii Game-Play Accessory Comes Packaged with Zelda Software

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Nintendo announced today that the
Wii Zapper(TM) interface for the hit Wii(TM) home video game system will come
packed with Link’s Crossbow Training(TM). The software is based on the hugely
popular Legend of Zelda(R) series and provides a perfect demonstration of the
way the Wii Zapper could be used in other games. The Wii Zapper casing houses
both the motion-sensitive Wii Remote(TM) and Nunchuk(TM) controllers in a
single unit for precision targeting. It goes on sale Nov. 19 at an MSRP of
just $19.99.
“The Wii Zapper combines our remarkable controllers into one housing with
a classic style reminiscent of arcade-style games,” says George Harrison,
Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate
communications. “Both veteran and first-time players will find it brings a
whole new dimension to games where targeting is key and provides even more
exciting game-play experiences.”
Link’s Crossbow Training drops players into a world in the style of The
Legend of Zelda(R): Twilight Princess. Players assume the identity of hero
Link, who progresses through a series of tests to perfect his crossbow
marksmanship. Start with stationary bull’s-eyes and graduate to moving targets
before defending Link against all kinds of enemies.
Third-party publishers have lined up to support the Wii Zapper. EA’s Medal
of Honor Heroes(TM) 2 lets players take World War II into their hands with the
Wii Zapper. The game features an all-new Wii-exclusive Arcade Mode that offers
accessibility to gamers of all skill levels, a full single-player campaign and
support for up to 32 players in multiplayer. Capcom’s Resident Evil(R): The
Umbrella Chronicles reveals the back story behind the fall of the Umbrella
Corporation by exploring locations from Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3, as well
as new never-before-seen locations like Umbrella’s stronghold. One or two
players use the Wii Zapper to take aim against a horde of zombies in
first-person perspective. SEGA’s Ghost Squad(TM) lets players replicate the
arcade light-gun experience at home with the Wii Zapper.
Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the
content their children can access. For more information about this and other

Its good that its coming with anything at all but I don’t know, doesnt it feel cheap and a bit gimmicky? I was thinking they might of done a throw back update of Duckhunt packaged with it, that would of probably been better suited.
