The first video game I can remember playing is Duck Hunt on the original Nintendo (NES) System. I remember it like it was yesterday, probably because Duck Hunt was a game I played with my grandmother and we made a lot of memories while playing it. More than anything, though, I remember her cheating at the game. She would scoot up super close to the television screen and put her gun (the Zapper) right against the ducks as they flew across the screen. Not surprisingly she won every time because she hit every quacking duck. Duck Hunt first came out way back in 1984 and was one of Nintendo’s original classic games. It’s not staying “classic”, though, as Nintendo has announced they’re re-releasing it for the Wii U.
The “new” version of Duck Hunt will be available in the future via a purchase from the Wii U Virtual Console. Duck Hunt is also able to be unlocked in the new Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. That game is set to release in the U.S. on November 21st of this year. You can check out Nintendo’s new Duck Hunt trailer in the video below:
