    Details:
    Out on the 19th November and package with the Wii Zapper.

    Link's Crossbow Training contains three basic game styles: target shooting, defender and ranger. There are 27 stages in total, and these categories represent only generally how each individual stage operates. Each stage's goal is to earn the highest score possible within the time limit. All rounds can be played with multiple players: Players pass the Wii Zapper around and then play one at a time and compete for the high score.

    Target Shooting: In target-shooting rounds, players shoot bull's-eyes as they pop up on the screen. In early stages, targets are stationary. As the game difficulty increases in later levels, the targets move. Hitting the center of the bull's-eye nets more points, and hitting targets in succession without missing earns combo multipliers. Link can aim anywhere on the screen.

    Defender: In defender rounds, players remain stationary but can look and aim in all directions - sometimes even in a full 360 degrees - by aiming off screen. Hordes of enemies assault Link, and he must fight them off. These battles have a great deal of variety, from fighting off skeletons in a desert to defending a wagon from boar-riding Bokoblins.

    Ranger: In ranger rounds, players can move throughout the level using the control stick and aim anywhere they want by aiming the Wii Zapper wherever they want to look. In these missions, Link storms enemy encampments, fights his way through a forest and seeks out his foes while exploring the environments.

    That's obviously the whole reason for that placement to begin with... wonder if they'll be lame and move it somewhere else for USA release... I could see them being lame and pulling something like that... just hope they don't though cause I might mess up from laughing seeing it there... [​IMG]

    Gambia, The
    They should´ve just included this as a mini-game of some sort in the Wii-Version of Twilight Princess. Oh well, we´ll see how it´ll turn out.

    Looks like it'd be a bit of fun. Lets hope it comes out cheap without the zapper shell (I can do without it :|)

    Comes out on November 19th, eh? It's not like that day was important at one Wii-related point in time.

    I'd play any game where you can shoot gorons in the nads.

    I'd bet anything the conversation went something like this.

    -We want everyone to buy the wii zapper casing so that we can use it in a lot of future games.
    -Okay so we need to make it really cheap and make it come with a game everyone wants.
    -That means the game should be based on one of our classic franchises.
    -Right so that would be Mario, Zelda, or Metroid.
    -Yeah, but we're going to sell it for $20 and games cost $50 and those DON'T come with a gun shell.
    -Well then we need to use assets from a game we've already made to lower development costs.
    -Mario Galaxy isn't out yet so that leaves Zelda or Metroid.
    -Samus has a gun arm, but then we'd have to deal with Retro Studios to get the assets and that would complicate development.
    -Well, let's use Link then.
    -But a bow and arrow doesn't have a trigger like our gun shell does.
    -Make it a crossbow then.


    I'm actually really excited for this game. I love on rails lightgun style shooters!
