The original Duck Hunt is coming to Wii U Virtual Console

NES shooting game Duck Hunt is coming to the Wii U's Virtual Console service, Nintendo announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation today. The announcement of the Nintendo Entertainment System classic, which is more than 30 years old, came after a video highlighting the Duck Hunt dog and duck as they appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Nintendo says the Wii U version will require the use of a Wii Remote controller to play. Price and release date for Duck Hunt were not announced.

You can get a taste of Duck Hunt both old and new in the Super Smash Bros. trailer below.
