Guess what Europe is getting as an add-on for Disney Wii games?

Yes, they are getting an official Toy Story gun for the upcoming Wii game, Toy Story Mania.

So, you remember the classic shootout scene from Toy Story when Woody and Buzz were caught in the claw game and had to shoot and kill their way through an endless horde of three-eyed aliens, right? Or, better yet, the awe-inspiring homage to Saving Private Ryan when all the Buzz Lightyears woke up in the toy aisle and there was that Normandy-esque massacre? It went something like this:

Oh, you don’t remember that? It’s almost as if guns have never been in a Toy Story movie before, and would make almost no sense in a game for 5 year old kids. Well, there is going to be a Toy Story 3, so there’s a possibly that the gang moves to a rougher neighborhood and Buzz has to trade in his red flashing light bulb for a gat to up his street cred.

Anyway, the gun is being made by (I kid you not) Thrustmaster.

“We are pleased to partner with Thrustmaster to develop a range of fun and innovative gaming accessories for Disney in Europe. Thrustmaster’s expertise and innovation track record in the gaming industry will bring a new dimension to the way kids play video games, and will deliver more fun and interactivity around Toy Story Mania!,”

Says Stephane Hareau, senior category manager, new business development at Disney Consumer Products Europe.

So, yeah, a Toy Story FPS. Something tells me Disney didn’t read my last article.

May God have mercy on our souls.

    FPS seems too strong a genre for this game. The game is based off the ride of the same name at Disney’s California Adventure and Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Think of it as a continuous battery of mini-games. You use the “ray gun” to fire everything from darts at targets on conveyer belts to paint-filled balloons at characters and plates.

    If you’ve been on the ride, it’s actually kind of fun. Thrustmaster or no, I’d play this.
