    Breaking news: Wii Zapper pack-in will be Zelda Crossbow Training

    If you're a manager for a GameStop store, at this moment you're in Vegas, enjoying all the vendors pitching their games to you. A source at the show tells Opposable Thumbs that after Nintendo's speech, the managers were given a world-exclusive first look at the pack-in game for the Wii Zapper. Are you ready? Zelda Crossbow Training.

    "The game looked beautiful," my source said. "I'm pretty sure it was running on the Twilight Princess engine. It's a third-person game, and you had some control over Link. While the video was way too short to get a good idea of the gameplay, it looks like a light-gun inspired Zelda title." (He says that as if we'd know what a light gun-inspired Zelda title would look like.)

    This is huge news, and it should sell a bunch of Wii Zappers. Zelda Crossbow Training will come packaged with the Wii Zapper hardware for $20. No specific release date was given.

    Damn you, Nintendo, playing to my Zelda fanboyism! I'm gonna be getting this game now... I mean, come on, it's probably only going to be £20 when it hits here! You can't go very wrong...

    See that hole in your wall?
    Oh god, Nintendo. Please don't ruin Zelda with minigames and crappy spin offs. Leave those to Mario.

    Mmm not sure what I think about this, I'm sure it won't suck and that it'll play well.

    I thought the game that comes with the Zapper would be a Wii Sports/Play style compilation of games, kinda expected Duckhunt or Gumshow and a few others. Perhaps they'll be sold on the WiiWare channel or just the originals on VC.

    Awesome, I was expecting some sort of basic Duck Hunt remake but this sounds a lot more fun.

    Of course if $20 is too expensive, I'm sure the game will be dumped and we'll see DX selling Wii Zapper clones for $5. [​IMG]
