The new Wii Zapper peripheral gets the Zelda treatment in the upcoming Link%26rsquo;s Crossbow Training for the Wii. Players will once again take control of everyone%26rsquo;s favorite green-clad hero, busting up normal targets, moving targets, and enemies of all kinds in this third-person target shooting extravaganza. We can%26rsquo;t say much for the Zapper (yet), but Nintendo of America senior vice presidentofmarketing George Harrisonsays, "Both veteran and first-time players will find it brings a whole new dimension to games where targeting is key and provides even more exciting game-play experiences."
Banking on the Zelda franchise, Nintendo hopes to show off how the Zapper could be used in other games to simulate an arcade-style gamingexperience.There's no telling how that'll turn outjust yet, but Zelda fans can rest assured that Link's Crossbow Training will look as good as a Zelda game ought, as it runs off of the Twilight Princess engine.
