When Electronic Arts picked up the rights to a variety of Hasbro games last August, it had a slew of new toys to play with it when it came to licensed casual games. Specifically, the agreement gave EA's casual gaming division the chance to make games based on brands like Monopoly, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Nerf, Tonka, and Littlest Pet Shop.

Today EA Casual Entertainment revealed the first concrete glimpse of its Hasbro plans, announcing that the first two console and handheld games to come from the deal will be Littlest Pet Shop and Nerf N-Strike. Both games are being developed by EA's Salt Lake Studio, and will see release this fall on the Nintendo DS and the Wii. A PC edition of Littlest Pet Shop is also in the works.

Littlest Pet Shop will allow players to run their own pet stores, "building relationships" with their products and unlocking new animals, accessories, and playsets. EA will sell three different versions of the game, each with unique pets.

As for Nerf N-Strike, the game is based on the line of soft foam-firing toy guns, and includes perhaps the least deadly deathmatch modes of all time with single and multiplayer modes. EA is also promising a new Nerf blaster that will allow players to "take the action outside as their controller transforms to fire actual NERF darts."

Naturally, EA's plans for the Hasbro brands extend beyond those two titles. The publisher also confirmed that it is working on multiplatform versions of Monopoly and Scrabble, as well as other games to be revealed by the end of the year and a full slate of mobile titles and Pogo.com online offerings.

By the priming handle alone my guess is that it's just more reused Nitefinder parts. Time will tell.

It looks like a chopped up disk shot case more than a Nite-Finder to me...

If the blaster tube could be fired independently of the main body, it might be very useful for assassin games or integrations.

I think the Vulcan sounds cool.

Oh hellz yes. Another belt fed Nerf Gun. Sign me up. The video game is probably going to be interesting to say the least. And I don't have a Wii, so I won't get the nerf blaster/controller.

Here, but DflyDen did a rather good job of pulling out the pertinent info.

Actually I just wanted to see it confirmed. I can say I'm almost not excited at all for this:

6 "D" batteries required but not included

The vulcan sounds amazing! I was going to get a razorbeast (I already have a chainblazer + roto-track) but I think I'll have to wait for the release of the vulcan.

The mech tommy 20 takes 3 tripple A batteries, so with 6 D batteries that quite a bit more electricity.

Oh ... my ... goodness. The vulcan sounds exactly like what I thought it wouldn't be. It does seem like a reasonable magstrike replacement. But then again, the tommy mech 20 was a bad weapon. I don't see it having much modification potential and the "6 D batteries" part alone is enough "nerfing" for me.
Always bring your sword to battle.

I pity the fool who attempts to use a single-shot blaster against me.

The firing meck on the gun part (plunger-tube) looks good for an integration.
