Link's Crossbow Training is a video game by Nintendo for the Wii. It is bundled with the Wii Zapper peripheral, and was released in North America on November 19, 2007, exactly one year after the Wii's release in that region. It was released in Europe on December 7, 2007.

The game uses various environments from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess as stages for targets with various background objects that can be shot. It sports many characters, friendly and hostile, that play a role as targets or obstacles.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Link's Crossbow Training is set in a world in the style of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and in the game the player assumes the role of the protagonist of The Legend of Zelda series, Link. In order to perfect his crossbow marksmanship, the player must pass a series of tests, starting with stationary bullseye targets, before moving onto moving targets and actual enemies. After every level, the player gets a medal depending on how well they managed to play. Medals are ranged from bronze to platinum, each medal rewarding points.
