The Original Duck Hunt Headed to Wii U Virtual Console

If you have fond memories of days spent on the NES shooting virtual ducks out of the sky, get ready for some nostalgia-worthy news. The original Duck Hunt is headed to the Wii U’s virtual console according to yesterday’s Nintendo Direct and it is looking as fun as ever.

Duck Hunt will require the Wii Remote to play in order to simulate the classic light gun setup, according to Nintendo.

The price and release date for Duck Hunt have yet to be announced but I’d be willing to bet it’ll be sometime around the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in order to stir up more interest in the Duck Hunt duck and dog character.
