The Wii U Virtual Console has steadily added almost every classic Nintendo game to its online library, but one notable omission is about to be rectified. The original Duck Hunt will be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console.

Announced during today's Nintendo Direct, the game will require a Wii Remote controller since you're aiming and shooting at the screen. However, Nintendo did not announce plans to re-issue the Zapper gun peripheral, which would have made this news even more exciting.

The addition came following a trailer for the unclockable Duck Hunt Dog character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Like every character in the next version of Smash, you'll be able to access a demo of the original game that made each of the fighters famous.
