Wow did this one sneak up on us! Hasbro recently officially announced the addition of a “Zombie Strike” line to their massive line of NERF products. Official zombie themed Nerf blasters have long been a rumor. With the continued popularity of zombies in general and zombie dart gun games like Humans vs. Zombies, it was only a matter of time.

Even armed with that knowledge we were shocked to see the announcement of the Nerf Zombie Strike line come from out of nowhere. Photos, rumors and even the actual product shown in action had been leaked on YouTube without any official announcement from Hasbro. Just prior to San-Diego Comic Con the buzz started hot and heavy and it was officially a craze when Nerf featured a bazillion (yes that’s a real number) zombie themed products at SDCC 2013. (See THIS is why we need to attend Comic-Con!) Much like a real zombie apocalypse there wasn’t much in the way of an official warning but I guess that just adds to the excitement.

For those with short attention spans let’s give you the quick and dirty. Nerf is launching the Zombie Strike line in early August 2013 with 2 Target Exclusive guns, the Zombie Strike Hammershot (retailing for $14.99) and the Zombie Strike Sledgefire (retailing for $27.99). There will also be Target exclusive X30 Zombie Strike Deco Darts to make sure you have plenty of ammunition for Z-day.
