If an Enemy is shrouded in total darkness that blocks line-of-sight, but the Enemy is not Hidden, can the Wizard attack that Enemy with Magic Missile?

From the Errata on Magic Missile[PDF]:

Ranged 20
Target: One creature
Effect: 2 + Intelligence modifier force damage.

You do not need Line of Sight unless the spell specifies it (Rules Compendium pg. 106). Magic Missile DDI does not have this restriction.

The wizard must have Line of Effect to the target creature though.
