Breaking news: Wii Zapper pack-in will be Zelda

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
"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.
$20USD seems like a pretty good deal.
Calling it hardware seems a little misleading to me. It's just a plastic frame that the wiimote and nunchuck lock into...
More money for Nintendo. ^__^
I keep telling myself that SMG and Brawl and NiGHTS Journey of dreams are right around the corner that reason alone is worth keeping the Wii....for now. But is $20 really such a great deal? $20 for about $1 worth of plastic that basically just holds the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in place. And yet another mini-game, probably not much more advanced than the Shooting Range from WiiPlay.
