QUOTE (joystiq.com)
Nintendo has officially confirmed Link's Crossbow Training, a pack-in title, to be bundled with the Wii Zapper, which hits retail November 19th for $19.99. As rumored earlier today, LCT is a sort of minigame spinoff that's set in "a world in the style of" Twilight Princess and features a series of crossbow training exercises, from stationary target practice to enemy combat. In other words, it's an archery tech demo ... for a gun peripheral. (Note: "gun peripheral" refers to a plastic mold that houses the Wiimote and Nunchuk.)

Having Link's pretty mug on the box is gonna sell units, we get that, but guys, c'mon, where's Duck Hunt? More shoot-shoot bang-bang, less thwap-thwap thud, okay? At least there's the potential to shoot the heck out of, er, 'zap' stuff in three upcoming third-party efforts: Ghost Squad (Sega), Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (EA) and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Capcom).


Sounds nice enough.
Though I'm not entirely sure I'd like to shell out $/19.99 for a plastic shell and a dumbed down Twilight Princess shooting range.

So it appears that Gamestop is wrong again (they told me the zapper came with UC). Oh well, I might buy Crossbow Training anyway, only $20.

Few new screenshots taken from Nintendo Power.













Looks nice...enough.

Nice enough for what? This is really meant as a tech demo, much like Wii Sports and stuff, so you're really paying for the Zapper. I just see TP visuals, which are solid enough to hold their own to some extent.

Nice enough for a bundle.

I can't say I'm particulary excited for this.

Haha, general opinion is that not many people are, so I don't blame you.

Somehow, I wouldn't have minded them throwing in a game where the Miis shoot at each other... but I guess that would be a tad too violent. =/

Yeah, a game would be nice with this.

Maybe they'll do that anyway. They did for Donkey Kong 64, after all.
