San Mateo, Calif. – August 13, 2013 — Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered will release across North America and Europe as a digital download for PC, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Nintendo eShop on Wii U™ and the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft® starting from today. DuckTales: Remastered is priced at $14.99 / €14.99 / 1200 Microsoft Points.
Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System™, DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of the generation’s seminal platform titles. DuckTales: Remastered once again follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they explore different themed worlds on their search for five legendary treasures.
DuckTales: Remastered has seen the development team at Way Forward take the levels and layout from the original release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience; but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.
Further additions to the original include an all new tutorial level where players can get familiar with the iconic pogo jump and cane swing and Scrooge McDuck’s very own Money Bin stage where Scrooge can dive into his dimes collected from each level directly off the springboard.
DuckTales: Remastered will be available on these dates: PC – August 13 for North America and Europe; PlayStation®Network – August 13 for North America and August 14 for Europe; Nintendo eShop – August 13 for North America and August 15 for Europe; Xbox Live online entertainment network – September 11 for North America and Europe.
