E3 2007: ´Wii Zapper´ and ´Wii Fit´ introduced



Nintendo announced two new accessories for the Wii, the ´Wii Zapper´ and the ´Balance Board´ to be used with ´Wii Fit´. Here are some pictures and videos of both from Nintendo´s E3 2007 press kit, along with some other stuff.



Wii Zapper







Wii Fit







´Metroid Prime 3: Corruption´ (Launch: 27th of August 2007)





´Super Mario Galaxy´ (Launch: 12th of November 2007)





´Super Smash Bros. Brawl´ (Launch: 3rd of December 2007)





´Fire Emblem´ (Launch: 5th of November 2007)



Sadly, the Nintendo E3 2007 press kit (password required) contains no more reference to ´Project H.A.M.M.E.R.´, so the rumours appear to be true: ´H.A.M.M.E.R.´ got the axe.

that zapper attachment is sooo BAD-ASS! its a huge improvement on the pistol zapper design we'd been shown previousely because the control stick would have been too unco to use on it.

i rekon i could have fun just running round the place making 'Bang' sound effects with this thing :P

HAMMER may have been cancelled, but they didn't show off Disaster either... let's hope Disaster isn't cancelled, too.

i believe that with the absolute BLITZ of 1st party awesomeness coming almost immediately, they're having to hold off on *SOME* 1st party games for next holiday season... right?

NZ you cant say that really till you try it yourself I think or till there are hands on at E3.

i said alot of things, which 1 u meaning?

*id THINK that itd be good for rail shooters and average for fps.
lets face it, if u buy this periferal to make a game more emersive then its a step back, in some ways, because you cant do nunchuck movements like chucking grenades in 'red steel' etc.

that wat u meen grand b? true i still cnt say realy

your missing the point THE DAM ANOLOG IS AT THE BACK AND TYPICAL TO NINTENDO IT WILL BE SWEET AND CUMPHY

MOH FPS IS IN DEVELOPMENT PURLY FOR THE ZAPPER

IF A FPS IS BALANCED AND POLISHED FOR ZAPER INSTED OF STANDARD WIIMOTE NUNCHUCK

PRESTO BRILLIANT CONTROLS

THE NEXT PERSON TO TRY AND DEFEND K-BOARD AND MOUSE AGAINST THE MIGHTY WIIMOTE NUNCHUCK AND NOW ZAPPER

IS DELOUDING THEM SELFS AND NEEDS HITTING

peow peow

Hey Falafel,

According to GoNintendo's interview with Beth Llewelyn, Project H.A.M.M.E.R. isn't cancelled, it's being shelved off. No one's working on it at this time.

actually the whole design of the 'wii zapper' is messed up.

im assuming that most right handers hold the wii-mote in their right hand.
the natural position for a right-hander to hold a firearm is left foot forward. this position would mean that a right-handers left hand would end up on wii-mote instead of their favoured right.

this is a problem and will mean people will have have to choose whether to go against the natural way they use a gun or the natural way they use the wii-mote.

ne1 get me?

after initial panic.. im just hoping that it wont be so bad if ur sitting on a couch and the size seems pretty small so it shouldnt be too unweildy.

In my face.

I said there would be no big thing.
Look at the Wii Balance board.
In my face.

Well the zapper was known to be, but it looks much improved. Nice!
Resident Evil and FPS games on Wii here I come.

And oh look MoH(Medal of Honor supports 32 player WIFI?
Who said the Wii was weak? ha....ha.(take that Sony and Xbox fanboys)

I am now thinking there is somthing else? (besides a Mic atachment for Wii-mote)

So, the Wii balance board.
Some, many core gamers will say its just another fad gimmick? Many core gamers just want to game and don't necessarily care about excercising on their console?

But think about this.
Think about the Wii balance board being used for more traditional games.

What about an FPS? An FPS can't support the board you say?

Two words: Head-butting fools!
LoL

..but it could look better had they opted for smaller environments...the poly count is higher...but you dont see a big difference eventually cause theres simply more going on...bigger locations more enemies at a time you know...the foes have more polygons...quite a few more...the textures dont get blurry up close..but they arent tremendously higher rez....the lighting in the environments, on architecture and on models could use a bump its too weak or subtle....I dont see strong lighting on the polygons and textures....the lighting should be richer...it should interact and affect the geometry more effectively (sorta like in Galaxy)..the environments and enemies need more specular highlights..I dont see bump mapping!..the main character in dewys adventure looks real next gen because of the normal mapping despite being a low poly model.....at the end of the day Id say it looks ok but still... I expected more...the engine is good but I see too many jaggies and the models and geometry could use more polygons better textures and better lighting by todays standards......the decoration, level and texture design is still awesome (albeit not as vivid as in Prime 1 Im afraid)...the samus model looks cheap...metal surfaces still dont look like metal....Galaxy proved that metal can shine like metal even on Wii....Im tellin you efficient lighting can work wonders on low rez textures and low poly models......Retro should improve the lighting......

You will get a beautiful cloth which in the game if we want to need the beautiful cloth, we can use our own Scions Of Fate gold to buy. The one I owned on my character is one of my friends sent to me the necessary SOF gold. Sometimes we can share the trophy as the necessary Scions Of Fate money together, and we do quest together. I do not have enough confidence and cheap SOF gold about my weak memory. First I have to buy sof gold to improve my pet which I have a lovely leopard in this game.
