Nintendo announces Christmas Day arrival for Duck Hunt on Virtual Console

duck-hunt-trailer-shot

Forget Destiny and Call of Duty. The best game you’ll fire up Christmas morning will be Duck Hunt.

Nintendo’s classic shooter will be available for download through Virtual Console on Wii U for $4.99 starting next Wednesday. Even though it won’t be compatible with the original NES Zapper (you’ll have to use the Wii remote), there’s no doubt it’ll still be crazy fun.duck-hunt-super-smash-bros

The Duck Hunt dog and one of the ducks (shown to the side) recently joined Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U. Just imagine if Nintendo goes all out and gives us a Duck Hunt Duo Amiibo?!

The original hit the shores of the US in October of 1985 before releasing nearly a year earlier in Japan. While receiving mediocre reception upon release, the game has since become a classic among gamers.

Get 15% off iPad Air 2 at Target stores

apple-ipad-air-2

Through tomorrow, Target offers 15% off iPad Air 2. According to the CartWheel coupon, 16/64/128GB iPads are included, but it doesn’t mention WiFi and WiFi + Cellular models. Although, it’s pretty safe to assume WiFi is included, which means you can get a 16GB iPad Air 2 for as low as $424.15.

If you’re looking for a WiFI + Cellular model then I’d say it’s worth heading down to your local Target and trying the coupon. This is the best current iPad Air 2 price.

To redeem this deal, visit this Target Cartwheel page and click add, you’ll then be prompted to login with either a Target, Facebook or Google account. It is important to note that this offer is valid in-store only, but you’ll have to claim it on Cartwheel first. REDcard holders can save an additional 5%.

Looking for an iPad mini or first generation iPad Air? You can save $50 on both at Best Buy.
