Nintendo Announce Wii Zapper Peripheral

The Nintendo press conference has kicked of at E3 and the first important info to come from the show is the announcement of the Wii Zapper. At the conference Reggie labeled it “the first offspring of the Wii remote and the Nunchuk” If that does not make sense to you then a better description would be a light gun shaped device that houses both the Wii remote and the Nunchuk.

Reggie played both Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and Ghost Squad with the Zapper to showcase its abilities, and also went on to announce it can be used with Medal of Honor for Wii – which can be played with up to 32 people online. In the future the Zapper will be packaged with the Nintendo’s software, but can be bought individually for $19.99.
