Nintendo has announced that the upcoming Wii Zapper interface will come packed with Link's Crossbow Training.

The Wii Zapper, a casing that houses the Wii Remote and nunchuck in a single unit, will go on sale in North America on November 19. It is expected to retail for USD 19.99.

"The Wii Zapper combines our remarkable controllers into one housing with a classic style reminiscent of arcade-style games," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Both veteran and first-time players will find it brings a whole new dimension to games where targeting is key and provides even more exciting game-play experiences."

Link's Crossbow Training drops players into a world in the style of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Players assume the identity of Link, who progresses through a series of tests to perfect his crossbow marksmanship.

Nintendo also announced that EA's Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, Capcom's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, and Sega's Ghost Squad will all take advantage of the new Wii Zapper.
