Nintendo re-releases Back to the Future Part II arcade game Wild Gunman in Europe

Posted on

When Marty McFly traveled to 2015 in Back to the Future Part II, he showed off his skills at the ’80s game Wild Gunman. In honor of Future Day, Nintendo is giving European fans in the real 2015 the chance to re-experience the classic game.

Nintendo has re-issued the game for the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe. It was available for the original NES with the use of the Zapper light gun, but now can be played using a Wiimote on the Wii U. Unfortunately, it’s only currently available on the Wii U for European players to download.

The original Wild Gunman had been developed for arcades before being released on the NES in 1984 in Japan and 1985 in the U.S.  Nintendo celebrated Future Day with the game’s release in the EU, but unfortunately there is no official plan to release the game in the U.S.

“We have nothing to announce at this time,” Nintendo of America said in a statement.
