Whether fans love him or hate him, the mocking dog from Duck Hunt will be playable in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, along with a console-exclusive stage.
While it may have been already confirmed- as all of the characters from Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be available in the Wii U version- the Duck Hunt dog-and-bird team are returning as a playable duo for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Unlike its handheld counterpart, the Wii U version will feature a Duck Hunt stage, themed after the classic NES light-gun shooter. No other details about the stage were featured, however fans can catch a short glimpse of it in action in a new trailer shown during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation:
Not only will the Duck Hunt team and homage stage appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Nintendo also revealed that the original NES Duck Hunt will debut on the Wii U Virtual Console sometime in the future; a release window was not given. A Wii U Zapper may not be in development, but according to today’s presentation, players control the game using an original Wii [Motion Plus] Remote controller.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release on 11/21 for the US, and on 11/28 in EU.
