Posted by at 12:56 pm on November 7, 2014

During the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, the company announced that Duck Hunt will be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console, a digital store within the Nintendo eShop to download Wii U content. Instead of having to dust off your NES Zapper, you will need to have a Wii Remote controller to shoot the ducks in the Wii U re-release of the game.

Super Smash Bros. players may have noticed that the Duck Hunt dog and one of the ducks appear as an “unlockable character” for the Nintendo 3DS. Duck Hunt can be unlocked in Super Smash Bros. by completing Classic mode using 8 different characters or 110 Smash matches.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS hit 1 million copies sold in Japan during its opening weekend last month and over 2.8 million total copies worldwide this month. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be launching in North America on November 21st, Europe on December 5 and Japan on December 6.

Nintendo put together a trailer for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. that showcases a new stage as a tribute to the original Duck Hunt. Here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure:
