Hasbro Press Release: N-Strike Elite confirmed
Well, we posted it a few days ago and.. it's official now- N-Strike Elite EXISTS. Extracted from the Hasbro press release also indicates room for a new Elite blaster in the midst for the 9-9 traditional launch date:
"In 2012, NERF fans will experience a revolutionary new high-performance class of NERF N-STRIKE blasters to collect and carry into battle. Taking the powerful technology featured in the popular N-STRIKE line to the next level, the innovative N-STRIKE ELITE line gives NERF NATION the extreme performance it craves. The standout N-STRIKE ELITE blasters will officially launch on 8.1.12, with the most impressive blaster in the collection hitting shelves on 9.9.12.
"While fans will have to stay tuned for more details about the N-STRIKE ELITE line, the brand will also be introducing new VORTEX disc blasters, NERF SUPER SOAKER water blasters and more. Continuing the "NERF or Nothin'!" fun, the brand brings fans a completely new way to play with its sports gear in 2012 with the introduction of FIREVISION technology, an innovative enhancement featured in the debut FIREVISION SPORTS collection which allows for play in both daytime and dusk. Only those wearing NERF FIREVISION FRAMES eyewear will be able to see the action with NERF FIREVISION SPORTS Football and additional FIREVISION sports items once the lights go down."
Given the two we listed look like revamps of the Raider and Recon, I'm going to suggest neither are the "most impressive" blasters in the Elite line.
