Retailer reveals Wii Laser Sword

Lightsabre clone war coming?

The essential guide to IT transformation

For die-hard Star Wars fans, the Lightsabre is probably the film series' coolest asset. So thank your lucky Death Star that a Lightsabre peripheral for the Wii remote has been unveiled.

The Wii Light Sword

Dubbed the Wii Light Sword, the add-on has just cropped up on online retailer Play.com’s website. The device is essentially a translucent plastic tube containing 22 "ultra-bright" LEDs fixed to the handle. The Wii Remote also slots into the handle, transforming it into a more elgant weapon from a more civilised age.

Presumably, this means the device could be used with any game, such as tennis in Wii Sports. However, it would probably be more fitting with titles like Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga.

Sadly, the Light Sword doesn’t make a “Vvvvwwwwwvvvv” sound when its waved around, but it does light up thanks to the use of three AA batteries, which aren’t included.

Play.com is releasing the Light Sword on 30 November for £15 (€22/$30).
