Grab your Wii Remote because It’s duck season and your trusty hunting dog is ready to scour the open fields. Test your sharp-shooting skills as your targets take flight in this legendary NES classic. Be quick to knock them out of the skies, or your canine companion won’t hesitate to make you the laughing stock of hunters. Need a change in scenery? Best your score against clay pigeon targets instead.
Duck Hunt is one of the most recognizable and popular titles ever released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in Japan in April of 1984 and December of 1985 in North America, Duck Hunt appealed to players both young and old. Since players used a light gun called a “Zapper,” players could mimic the experience of both duck hunting and clay pigeon shooting. Now, using the Wii Remote, players can re-live that experience and bring the classic title to a new generation.
Duck Hunt will be available on the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console on December 25, 2014.
Merry Christmas, Nintendo fans!
