The classic NES Light Gun game Duck Hunt is making its way onto the Wii U Virtual Console just in time for Christmas. Announcement for this port came with the official release of the Duck Hunt Duo character for Super Smash Bros a month ago but the official release date has been tagged as December 25th. No price has been attached to Duck Hunt as of now, but it’s not expected to exceed the normal range for NES games on Virtual Console which is about $7-$8.
This port of a classic is a bit different, allowing for Wii Mote Control as the NES Zapper can’t be used on the Wii U. Other than the update in controller, this port doesn’t seem to change anything up. Duck Hunt being on the Virtual Console could set a precedent for other Light Gun games to make the jump. Finally, a whole new generation can get pissed at that laughing dog.
