Why was Duck Hunt Duo included in Smash Bros? on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Also in a Famitsu interview, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U director Masahiro Sakurai talked about the inclusion of Duck Hunt.

Sakurai feels that the original NES title, which worked with the NES Zapper light-gun, is "a quite major game." He was keen to revive the setting of the original release in the new Super Smash Bros. games, and that it's "very important how different characters make the game interesting with their individuality."

The Duck Hunt Duo mechanic is something that Sakurai wanted to implement, as well, with a third person who attacks.

Also in the report, Sakurai revealed that Super Smash Bros. Melee could have gotten eight player support.

What do you think of the inclusion of Dunk Hunt Dog in the new games?

Best character to be included in a smash game.

"Why was Duck Hunt Duo included in Smash Bros?"

Um, 'cause they can't use Banjo and Kazooie anymore? Smilie

Chance favors the prepared mind.

Weirdest character BY FAR in Smash, let's hope the major Wonderful 101 heroes, Zero & Bayonetta will be playable with DLC down the road.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422
