Link's Crossbow Training is bundled with the Wii Zapper peripheral and allows players to step into the boots of Link for an action-packed shooting gallery adventure. Played in the setting of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, players utilize the Wii Zapper as Link's crossbow, shooting at various targets and enemies to get the highest scores possible.

There are three types of play styles:
  • Target shooting — players shoot at or avoid various targets in order to chain together combos and get the highest score possible.

  • Defender — players remain in a stationary spot, and fend off hordes of enemies from advancing upon and injuring Link.

  • Ranger — utilizing the nunchuk (attached to the Zapper), players move Link around an environment shooting all enemies until the timer runs out.
Additional game modes include a multi-player mode, where players compete for the highest score, and a record mode, where players try to achieve the highest score possible in any of the various sections.
