Time to break out your old light gun.

Nintendo has announced the latest batch of games that will be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in America on January 6: Wild Gunman, Hogan’s Alley, and The Adventures of Bayou Billy.

The three games all seem to fit a “shooting” theme, allowing players to make use of their Wii Remote instead of the NES light gun. For those of you who are unfamiliar with any of them, here are the official overviews of the games:

Wild Gunman:

“Go back in time or relive it in today’s future with the classic Wild West shoot-out of Wild Gunman! Keep your hand steady on the Wii Remote, and get the outlaw before he gets you. If you think you can win the battle against one outlaw, try winning against all of his friends.”

Hogan’s Alley:

“Use your split-second reflexes and sharpshooting accuracy in the practice shooting range! In Game A and Game B modes, aim and shoot at the gang members as they turn, while avoiding the innocent bystanders. In Game C mode, shoot the cans and keep them in the air until they reach the platforms.”

The Adventures of Bayou Billy

“Godfather Gordon has stolen sweet Annabelle Lane off to his estate. But Bayou Billy won’t rest until his girlfriend is back home safe—even if he has to wrestle crocodiles, beat up Gordon’s goons, and endure a drive-by shoot-out! Try playing shoot-out scenes with the Wii Remote in Game A mode.”

While American gamers can enjoy these Virtual Console games this week, Nintendo also yesterday released a number of different games on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console. Gamers have instead been able to download Final Fantasy I & II Advance, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart 64, and Super Mario World.

Are you planning on downloading any Virtual Console games this week or are you still hoping for some of Japan’s Virtual Console? Share your thoughts below.

    While Wild Gunman and Hogan’s Alley were early NES games published by Nintendo, it seems odd to add Bayou Billy (Konami, 1989) to this list. I would have expected Gumshoe! Now that was a NES Zapper game!

    Still enjoying 1080 from last week and am hoping for a North American release of Wave Race 64 in the near future.
