It does make it tempting to get a Wii...

Interesting. The subject was briefly touched on in the Force Unleashed thread and there was some speculation on whether the Wii lightsaber is going to be released in the US.

Hopefully the creation of a Wii lightsaber means there will be more Star Wars themed games coming out for the Wii in the near future.

I've seen that image before but then Nintendo announced not releasing such thing. However, this is from the UK site, so maybe the UK will get it and not the US. I'm not sure though.

There's still no official announcement, as Aush pointed out.. The magazine has an image but Nintendo has not changed its stand on the fact of safety, Personally, I don't care, but I will try and see what Nintendo has say about it in the upcoming weeks.

I understand the safety thing but look, there's the force efx lightsabers the spring loaded Hasbro lightsabers and those cheap ten dollar ones. What's the issue?. Anyone one of those can do that same amount of damage or more then the Wii lightsaber if it's only a handle. Pleasssssssse, I want my lightsaber, pleeeeeeeaaaaasssssssse!!!!!!

Hey, that's nice! Finally, something that I can swat my opponent with if I'm getting shelacked in Super Smash Bros, and turn the tide of the game! Very Happy Laughing Laughing

Forgive my ignorance but what safety issues are there with a Wii lightsaber? Isn't it just a regular Wiimote designed to look like a lightsaber?

To be honest, I don't either but I wouldn't be surprised if they came up with something (you always can). But if something like the spring-launched lightsabers can be released, then I don't know what the problem with this one is.

Here, here,............. I want my Wiisaber, please, give me my Wiisaber. They can leave the "blade" off and just give us a handle. What's the problem???? It's just a Wiimote in the shape of a lightsaber handle. Exclamation No harm, no foul.

well, these are already available here in canada, so once i've got the $$ i'll prolly get one. the only difference is that the blade lights up, and i 'think' it changes the sound effects from the wiimote to lightsaber sounds
