Nerf Wii Blaster holds Wiimotes, launches darts
EA Hasbro has announced its new lineup of games, including a Nerf-branded Wii title that uses a Zapper-like blaster that doubles as a Nerf dart gun.
When it comes to plastic toy guns, two names tend to come to mind: Nerf and the
Wii Zapper clones aren't exactly new. Nyko's Perfect Shot offers a satisfyingly gun-shaped alternative to the Zapper, and CTA Digital's give even more choices. Nerf's Wii blaster puts a new spin on the Zapper by making it double as a functional Nerf dart gun. The Wiimote can pop into the Nerf-themed gun grip to function as a game controller, or you can pop in a Nerf blaster module to fire foam darts at your friends and enemies.
The Nerf N-Strike games and blaster are scheduled to ship in fall 2008. Hasbro will likely unveil more details about the games at next week's Toy Fair in New York.
