Nintendo NES Classic ‘Duck Hunt’ Adapted For Virtual Reality With Oculus Rift

Duck-Hunt-for-Oculus-RiftWe all have fond memories of blasting those defenseless flappers in Duck Hunt on the Nintendo NES, but how does the game fare in a more modern environment? At this year’s Global Game Jam one fan of the 1984 light-gun classic decided to adapt the game for play in virtual reality using the Oculus Rift.

In a mere twenty four hours Joseph Delgado recreated the game from the ground up to fit within a three dimensional world. This saw Delgado take the game’s original sprites and convert them into voxels, all whilst creating a full 360 degree arena for the many ducks to fly around. As if this wasn’t enough already, the Nintendo NES Zapper was also modified to work with the setup.

Needless to say the ultimate Duck Hunt remake is here, and one Delgado has demonstrated via YouTube. From what we’re aware of the virtual reality remake isn’t publicly available to play, although shout it be released you may need to look towards modified Nintendo NES light-guns and other complicated setups. Either way we’re in awe at how good 8-bit classics can look in a whole new dimension.
