NES Zapper

NES Zapper

The NES Zapper, also known as the Beam Gun in Japan, is an electronic light gun accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released in Japan for the Famicom on February 18, 1984 and alongside the launch of the NES in North America in October 1985. The Famicom version of the Zapper, made for the game Wild Gunman, resembled a revolver-style handgun, but the North American version resembled a futuristic science fiction ray gun with a colour scheme matching the NES. Early versions of the Zapper were a dark gray, but its color was later changed to orange, as was now required for all "toy guns" under U.S. Federal Regulations. Although originally included in some configurations of the NES, the Zapper was available for purchase separately.

The Zapper allows players to aim at the television set display and shoot various objects such as ducks, clay pigeons, targets, cowboys, or criminals, or other objects.
