We all knew of their inclusion thanks to the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros., but now Duck Hunt Duo has it’s official announcement trailer and it managed to be cute, funny and nostalgic all at the same time. Duck Hunt Duo is a very unique character with his main moves coming from either the Duck Hunt Dog itself or the duck on its back. The old NES Zapper itself also makes an appearance in the move set with the on screen reticule and off screen gunfire attacks. Other NES classic light gun games also make cameos in his move set as does the Dog’s signature cheeky laugh.

With the announcement of the Duck Hunt Duo character also came the news that the classic 1985 NES title itself would be releasing on the Wii U Virtual Console. You can check out the trailer for yourself below as well as the newly released screenshots of the Duck Hunt team in glorious HD.

  • That is so awesome! haha

    • Safe to state somebodies happy, that or you played it back in the day. I dont mind the re-release of Duck hunt, but its inclusion into Smash seems a bit over exagerated dont you think? Thats coming from somebody who gamed back in the retro days by the way.
