Capcom's 2013 HD revamp of its 1989 NES classic 'DuckTales' video game.
Capcom has revealed plans to bring back the 1989 NES classic DuckTales video game.
Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, DuckTales is considered still today to be one of the console's top titles. Taking its cue from the Disney cartoon series of the same name, DuckTales Remastered follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck as he explores differently themed worlds to collect their treasures and become the world's richest duck.
The levels and layout from the original game have been expanded in DuckTales Remastered and its gameplay is being enhanced. Furthermore, all of the visuals from the 8-bit game are being beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Also, the game will feature original Disney Character Voices talent to 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; while Scrooge McDuck's Museum allows players to track all their stats and compare their progress with others via global leaderboards.
A Disney Interactive licensed property, DuckTales Remastered is being developed for Capcom by WayForward and is scheduled for release digitally on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U this summer.
