Smash Switch Speculation: Duck Hunt

Note: These articles are more for discussion purposes before E3. They'll be short, sweet, and to the point for a brief recap and looking into possible characters/stages for each series in Smash Bros. These also go by a "Don't expect too much" philosophy. Please remember to be civil in the comments discussion.

One of Nintendo's oldest IPs, going back to their days as a toy company, Duck Hunt made its Smash debut in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U as one of the game's retro franchises. The series has had one stage across both versions, as well as a single character, also called Duck Hunt (Duck Hunt Duo in PAL regions).

Returning Characters

Duck Hunt seems like a likely character to return, especially given the series importance to Nintendo's history.

New Characters

The only way, quite literally, to humor this one is if Duck Hunt gets split between the dog and the duck for characters.

Returning Stages

Duck Hunt's stage is likely to return even if the dynamic duo doesn't.

New Stages

There are no other locations to work with.

If Duck Hunt Duo returns, they should totally release Duck Hunt on the eShop (if they haven't already). The Joycon's infrared sensor could act as the gun.
I don't really expect everything to happens but I think football we are going to see single player contents getting upgraded in order to appeal more fans, and stand out on it's own.
