The Casual Entertainment Label of Electronic Arts, Inc. announced the release of NERF “N-Strike” for the Wii. The game, inspired by the globally popular franchise from Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS), features non-stop NERF-style pandemonium where players are faced with a series of challenging missions that put blasting strategies and skills to the ultimate test. NERF “N-Strike” also ships with a custom NERF SWITCH SHOT EX-3 blaster, the first ever 2-in-1 video game and toy peripheral bundle to hit the market.

NERF N-Strike

The bundled NERF SWITCH SHOT EX-3 blaster, which offers two ways to play, can be used in-game by snapping the Wii remote into the chamber or swapping in the dart cartridge to transform the blaster for classic NERF indoor and outdoor play.

NERF “N-Strike”, which targets boys 10 and older, features more than 25 unlockable in-game blasters including digital replicas of popular real world NERF toy line blasters such as the Longshot CS-6 and Vulcan EBF-25 as well as never-before-seen fantasy blasters like the Crusher and Semper Fire created exclusively for the video game. As players enter the top-secret NERF training facility and begin to engage in the high-octane action, they quickly discover the importance of choosing the best blaster for the job as they pull down big victories or fall short and get taunted by in-game characters who have already achieved top blaster status.

NERF “N-Strike” gameplay progresses through various chambers, each featuring a series of missions and characters that must be overcome before moving to the next level. Example missions include “Dawn of Machines” which puts players behind the NERF blaster long-range scope and “Onslaught” which overloads the screen with moving targets that must be cleared as quickly as possible. NERF “N-Strike” offers multiplayer capabilities for up to four players to battle and determine who has what it takes to become the top Elite Striker.

NERF “N-Strike” for the Wii comes bundled with the NERF SWITCH SHOT EX-3 blaster and has a MSRP of $59.99. For expanded multiplayer fun, additional SWITCH SHOT EX-3 blasters are available in retail toy aisles and can be purchased separately for $14.99
