Wii Hero Pack let’s users slay the dragons
Wii accessories are getting as common as the games people play. Some are even kicking up the imagination quotient a notch to give players not only a physical experience – such as for sports video games – but also a fantasy experience. Witness the Wii Hero Pack by Camy International.
Though some will enjoy the inevitable Zelda gaming fantasies, why stop there? Imagine pulling the sword of Gryffindor from the sorting hat in the first Harry Potter video game, or wielding the sword and shield a digital Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? Any video game that has a sword and shield and runs on Wii will enjoy the added dimension of hacking and slashing with hilt and blade, even if it’s much shorter and made of foam.
The Wii’s Wiimotes rest firmly in the Sword’s handle and in behind the shield in a handle slot, giving the shield a firm grip. Because of its relative short size, the blade just long enough to experience the feel of sword swing without actually seeing the foam flex at a 90 degree angle once you pull back.
And the best part is the price … probably around $20 once it gets distributed to a Target/Walmart computer department near you.
Here’s hoping that Ray Harryhausen sees the possibilities and comes out with a Seven Voyages of Sinbad video game so we can fight those cool skeletons. That alone would be worth investing in Nintendo again!
