Images of Link's Crossbow Training

The crossbow and long ears hero Link is ready to fire at will at the targets in Link's Crossbow Training. First game to be sold bundled with the Wii Zapper peripheral, it will be available in North America next month, November 19, 2007. This is exactly one year after the launch of the console in this region. I like the Goron targets!

Nintendo and their peripherals *sigh*. However, it's good that you get a game bundled in there considering that they probably could have sold you just the plastic handle for your wiimote at the same price :P

Nintendo, I have lost all respect I once had for you. The money has clearly gotten to their heads...

Oh my.. How can they do this to my beloved franchise?! This is almost as bad as those games from the early 90`s on the Phillips console!
Cheers

Yea, Nintendo has really been riding their IP values down in recent years. Worst thing yet is the Wii Zapper is just a piece of plastic to hold your wiimote and nunchuk.

Just another worthless piece of plastic to drain peoples' money.

The things is, the Wii is aimed at the casual gamers, the same people that have made EA what they are today, so I think they will be quite happy to part cash for a plastic holder for their zapper experience... :/

The game could be very fun.

Anyone think Nintendo should start putting difficulties in their games? Metroid Prime games don't really need it, they're normally hard enough, but they have a hard mode anyway. But pretty much every other Nintendo game could use a harder difficulty (Zelda, prolly Mario Galaxy too).

I hope Link isn't going to be rehashed like Mario in other Nintendo games. Is nothing sacred anymore?

nintendo is selling out to the casual... and milking zelda

Nintendo needs to create new gaming icons that they once used to do. They are milking the likes of Mario, Zelda and Dk so much, that it's sickening. I'm a big Nintendo fan, or was until late. They've lost their way.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (4 Hours ago)
