Nintendo has confirmed to Eurogamer that Link's Crossbow Training and the Wii Zapper will be released here before the end of the year.

The peripheral was unveiled earlier this year at E3, where we saw Nunchuck and Wiimote disappear into a plastic machine gun-style housing.

It will be available to buy separately, or with Link's Crossbow Training - a shooting-gallery title based around the hero of the Zelda series.

Here, Target Shooting and Defender modes will get you used to firing at things - the latter even lets you shoot off screen to turn around - while Ranger mode will add-in player movement through the Nunchuck control stick.

Nintendo has previously said Medal of Honour: Heroes 2, Ghost Squad and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles will all be compatible with the Zapper in the future.

The Wii Zapper will go on sale accross North America on 19th November for USD 19.95. A European price is yet to be confirmed.
