From Engadget this morning:

Thought all your dreams of an all-in-one NERF gun / Wii controller were fulfilled with the original NERF Blaster Controller? Think again. 'Cause EA has now announced its follow-up NERF 2: N-Strike Elite game, which will of course also come bundled with a new and improved NERF Switch Shot EX-3 blaster. As before, this one will house the Wiimote inside to let you use it with the game or let you ditch it to take things outside (or to the office), and it adds a new attachable "NERF decoder scope" that'll let you detect enemy weak spots, decode secret messages, and uncover other hidden gameplay elements. And, well, it's a NERF gun and a Wii controller. Is there anything else you really need to know? No word on a price just yet, but you can look for the bundle to launch sometime this fall.

The "nerf decoder scope" reminds me of the flip down target on the lnl. I wonder if the gun will be sold separately from the game, because I won't buy a game just for a gun.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

The decoder scope reminds me of this thing Lego had a while back where there's be something, then all this red crap around it, and when you looked through a red lens it would make the red crap "invisible" and you could see the picture. I think this is probably the same idea.

EDIT: What's that black thing on the back? Looks like Velcro. It might be some weird system of priming...

I liked the other color scheme better anyways.

Yea I remember a birthday party I went to in like 2nd grade where we had the red glasses to find hidden "clues." It's like those weird illusions on screen that when the red is filtered out through the glasses, you can see whatever it is you are seeing. Like wing'd man said.

It's the priming handle, but the piece of plastic that thats at the end of the gun has the same color as the background, so it looks like a hookish thing but it's not.

Looks like a crossing of NF and a Switch shot, hope it performs better..................

So now we can combine the dirty Wii jokes with the dirty Nerf gun jokes!
