Mad Dog McCree looking likely for Wii

Laserdisc shooter in sights.

Old school laserdisc and arcade game Mad Dog McCree appears to be heading to Wii, if an ESRB rating for a Gunslinger Pack is to be believed.

"This is a first-person shooter featuring live-action scenes instead of traditional animation. Set in the Wild West, the game allows players to engage in gunfights with bandits, rescue innocents, and shoot objects for points. Players use crosshair targeting to fire their gun at various outlaws who yell, flail, and crash through the scenery," says the ESRB.

Word backs chatter from late last month, when GameFly online rental service also listed Mad Dog McCree for the Nintendo Console.

Majesco is rumoured to be the publisher and we're currently trying to find out more.

Mad Dog McCree swaggered into arcades in 1990, and used live-action sequences performed by real stuntmen and actors to captivate light gun, on-rails shooter fans.

The game has sprung up on various formats since, but suffers due to loading times between user input and game reaction. Blu-ray, we hope, can rectify this.
