The Wii Zapper is an accessory for your Nintendo Wii system. The Wii Zapper is not similar to the Wii Blaster, a Wii controller. It's a sleek sexy accessory that turns your Wii remote and nunchuck controller, into a new handy gun peripheral. Nintendo has not delivered a gun controller since the original NES Zapper for Duck Hunt. Not a light gun or controller, the Wii Zapper is a simple gun-shaped plastic shell that holds the Wii remote and Nunchuck for use in shooting games.
The Nintendo NES Zapper
For the first time in almost 20 years, Nintendo has released an accessory, a hot gadget, called the Zapper. It's a 2007 Nitendo Wii version of the NES Zapper controller. The NES Zapper controller is a gray or bright orange light gun that let you shoot at ducks, bull's-eyes, and bandits for the NES game system.
The 2007 version of the Zapper is not a light gun or controller. It's a simple gun-shaped plastic shell that holds your Wii remote and Nunchuck. This sexy gadget comes with Link's Crossbow Training, a training game based on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Crossbow Training is a game that helps you become familiar with using the Zapper in a shooting gallery style game.
The Zapper is a handle that holds the Wii remote and Nunchuck
The Zapper does not add any meaningful or unique features to your Wii's control system. It provides a near-ideal grip for shooting games. This hot gadget feels better than just holding the remote and Nunchuk. It is easy to setup. The control stick on the Nunchuk controls player movement. Aiming the Wii Zapper moves the targeting crosshair on the screen.
Games that use the Zapper are available now: Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, and Ghost Squad. Others will be coming later this year. The Wii Zapper only works with games designed to use it. A sexy accessory that's a great peripheral for your Wii system, considering the current crop of shooter games.
