Release date for Ducktales: Remastered announced

Capcom has just announced the release date for the upcoming title Ducktales: Remastered.

Ducktales: Remastered will be available for Wii U eshop, PSN, and PC on August 13th. The PS3 will be getting a physical release on August 20th. There will also be an XBLA version coming September 11th.

This title is a remake of a classic platformer known simply as “Ducktales”, which came out for the NES and Gameboy in 1989. It features Scrooge McDuck on an adventure in which he hunts down 5 treasures across the world.

The remake is a blend of 3D and hand-drawn 2D animation. The story mode is more detailed than the NES/Gameboy versions; Capcom even had the actual voice actors from the show doing the dubbing for the characters. The developers made sure to improve the game, as opposed to simply changing very dramatically. The level design is pretty faithful to the original game, with some obstacles added here and there that weren’t previously featured in the original game.

If you’re a fan of the show or even just the game itself, then this remake shouldn’t disappoint. Capcom shows it’s capable of breathing new life into an old title without radically transforming the original game.

About Christopher Deleanides

Well, my name's Christopher Deleanides as you all know and I'm the Nintendo Editor here at BG. I've been playing video games since 1992, and I've been a Nintendo fan the entirety of those years. My love for video games as well as Nintendo hasn't changed, and probably never will. The only thing that comes close is politics, as I'm very deeply involved in both local and international issues.

  1. I’m probably too excited for this. I played the original to death on the NES and I loved the show (and the spinoff!) as a kid too. Now I have to wait for late August? 😛

    It’s funny how after all these years you can never forget a voice like Scrooge McDuck’s. It put a smile on my face in an instant when I watched the first scene of the game.

  3. lol that’s totally true! I don’t know, it just seemes like cartoons in general were way better back then.

    They certainly were. Not overly censored, and just had a certain charm that they lack today. You don’t really get anything like Rocko or hell, even Courage the Cowardly Dog in this day and age.
