Up until this point, Nerf's upcoming Zombie Strike line has been a little left field, coming out of nowhere and with little intel on what it is and how it'll line up alongside other Nerf gear. Out of the blue, pop culture and tech site io9 just got the mad exclusive to the official Zombie Strike press release, complete with what we love the most- details of NEW BLASTERS.
It appears the new Zombie Strike line is going to be bringing a whole bunch of Nerf's lines together, with a series of very cool original gear that has foam dart blasters, vortex XLR disc firing blasters and even incorporating N-Force to the mix with a Zombie Strike sword! More details after the jump. (prices are US dollars)
(it's 4am here and I got woken up by my phone beeping with emails coming thru a plenty from readers, so thanks to all of you who sent in for the heads up- this is news worth waking up for!)
