The game Duck Hunt brings back memories for a lot of different people, whether they be good or bad, sometimes it is as simple as our first memory of the original NES, sometimes it is just spending hours doing what would be become one of our earliest, yet fondest memories of the First Person Shooter Genre, or it is the memory or knowledge that we will not see another Duck Hunt game probably ever unless you play a dedicated hunting game.  Whatever your thoughts or opinion, which still vary I am sure many of you can not argue against seeing this classic game return from the abyss to arrive on the Wii U virtual console, better still it seems if you live in America you could be spending Christmas Day reliving your childhood when Duck Hunt is set to arrive on the Wii U virtual Console.

In case you have never played Duck Hunt or are concerned about how the game will work without the NES light gun then Nintnedo have nice enough to provide us with an overview of the game and how it is going to work with the Wii U, you can read that below:

Grab your Wii Remote controller! 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.
