Mad Dog McCree Is Coming To Nintendo 3DS

Engine Software is bringing a port of the live-action light gun arcade game Mad Dog McCree to Nintendo's 3DS eShop "very soon," the studio's VP of development Ruud van de Moosdijk confirmed to Nintendo World Report (via Joystiq). The game's video footage won't be touched up to take advantage of the 3DS's stereoscopic 3D screen because, as Moosdijk asked, "how were you gonna do that?"

Mad Dog McCree has a fun legacy as one of the early laserdisc-based video games (and the first of those to use a light gun). One of the last too. This was not a long-lived technology. They're digital like CDs but large like records. So instead of having a fragile vinyl thing that's roughly as round as a basketball to worry about scratching, you've got a same-sized fragile, aluminum-coated plastic thing that you have to worry about scratching. The 3DS makes all of that irrelevant with the eShop, since you can just download the whole thing as bits and bytes. Yay for progress.
