Lock, Load and Let the Machismo Fly; This Ain®€TMt for Sissies, Folks!

City of Industry, Calif., (August, 2009) – Looking like something out of a Quentin Tarantino movie, the Buckshot™ Pump-Action Shotgun for Nintendo Wii is one of the coolest accessories to hit the video game market since, well, forever. This sucker packs a nasty punch and is sure to inspire the macho fantasies of gamers around the globe.

The Buckshot encases a controller that is similar in function to a Wii™ Nunchuck and uses the pump reload feature to access the B button while the trigger accesses the A button. The rubber grips ensure an easy hold and a fast reload time, making it ideal for such games as Call of Duty 3™, Call of Duty: World at War™, Links Crossbow Training™, House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return™, House of the Dead: Overkill™, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles™, James Bond: Quantum of Solace™, Medal of Honor: Heroes 2™, and much more!

– For DS
– Genterprise handling development
– Releasing November 19, Amazon exclusive
– 3D dungeon RPG
– Map on the top screen
– First-person view on the touch screen
– Somewhat like a realtime experience – ex: boulders will roll at your party even if you do nothing
– Touch screen can be used to examiner traps found in dungeons, solve sliding puzzles

This information comes from Nintendo Power…

“We know a lot of people out there like playing with their friends, with their family, and so we wanted to support that. But the other reason [for the co-op play] is that we kind of wanted to move away from strict survival-horror rules – which are, you’re alone, you have to really watch your back, [and] conserve ammo all the time – and move more in the direction of action-horror.” – John Calhoun, senior designer of Dead Space: Extraction

As Nintendo Power notes, players will still need to be aware of ammo supplies, as gamers will use ammo from one pool.
