Wii'll Be Zapping By Christmas

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo set to release Wii Zapper in Europe and the UK on December 7th and should cost around £20 or 30 EUROs.

"Nintendo’s Wii Zapper will be available across Europe in time for Christmas, the company said today.

The white, double-handed, machine gun peripheral will ship on 7 December, bundled with the Link’s Crossbow Training game. Additional titles are promised, including Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.

Link’s Crossbow Training requires players to aim the Wii Zapper – which houses both the Remote and Nunchuck - at on-screen targets. The Nunchuck controls gamers’ movements and the Remote’s B button, which connects to a trigger, is used for, well, shooting. Different rates of fire are possible too.

The Zapper also relays re-positioning movements, presumably so you can pretend you’re lurking around a precarious corner, while the Nunchuck’s Z button acts as a zoom."

Brilliant. If you really can't wait, Resident Evil is set to release on November 30th, which we're quite sure will have the option to be bundled with a Wii Zapper.

The Wii Zapper will be released around a week earlier in the US, we'll be reviewing all the Wii Zapper software as soon as we get our hands on it.
