Duck Hunt Smash Bros trailer heralds Duck Hunt Virtual Console release

Duck Hunt is not only joining the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros., but his classic game is about to see a re-release on the Wii U Virtual Console.


Those that have picked up Super Smash Bros. for 3DS may not be too surprised by the latest trailer for the upcoming Wii U version of the game. It has been confirmed that Duck Hunt, the unholy team-up between the Duck Hunt dog and the Duck Hunt... er... duck, will join the Wii U roster, as well.

A new trailer revealed many of Duck Hunt's attacks, as well as his various color palettes. While that laugh-out-loud trailer would be enough, the trailer concluded with a special announcement for fans of the classic light gun shooter. Duck Hunt (the game) will soon be hitting the Wii U Virtual Console, with the Wii Remote acting as the Zapper light gun. No date for its release has been given.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
