Light gun released for the SNES in 1992. It was packaged with a cartridge containing 6 games designed to help demonstrate the capabilities of the Scope, and was also compatible with a small number of other titles for the system. 

It is designed to be rested on the shoulder during use, and, unlike other light guns, it requires the use of an infrared sensor placed on the TV to detect where the player is aiming.
