Is the Wii Blaster/Zapper coming soon?

Wii Blaster/Zapper on its way - Image 1The Wii Blaster/Zapper is one of the most requested peripherals for the Wii. Those who have been clamoring for this little beauty may not have to wait long since it’s already listed in GameStop with a May 1 pre-release shipping date.

Of course, it has been mentioned that the date could simply be a placeholder. SPOnG has checked with Nintendo to try and confirm the information. The site was answered with a very cryptic “pure rumour and speculation – no official announcements have been made”.

The Wii Blaster is listed with a US$19.99 price tag, so it’s actually pretty cheap compared to other peripherals on the market now. We’re still hoping the gun will be compatible with Duck Hunt and Hogan’s Alley. If you haven’t seen the product yet, take a look at the prototype blaster from last year’s E3.
