Nintendo confirmed on Monday that the Wii Zapper will launch on November 19 and come bundled with Link's Crossbow Adventure for US$19.95.
As rumored recently, the Wii Zapper will include a Zelda mini-game, Link's Crossbow Training, to demonstrate potential uses for the add-on peripheral.
"The Wii Zapper combines our remarkable controllers into one housing with a classic style reminiscent of arcade-style games," said Nintendo vice president George Harrison in a statement. "Both veteran and first-time players will find it brings a whole new dimension to games where targeting is key."
Link's Crossbow Training is said to resemble Twilight Princess. Players progress through a series of tests while perfecting Link's crossbow chops.
Nintendo also announced additional titles to support the accessory housing including EA's Medal of Honor Heroes 2 which supports 32-person multiplayer, Capcom's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, and Sega's Ghost Squad.
