DuckTales Remastered Announced and Arriving in Summer 2013

Did you know that the Japanese translation for the old DuckTales game for the NES literally meant “Naughty Ducks Dream Adventures“? Well the naughty ducks from the beloved cartoon get to continue their video game shenanigans in the 21st century with DuckTales Remastered developed for Capcom by the team at WayForward.

This Disney Interactive title is scheduled to be released digitally on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360, Sony PSN for the PS3 and the Wii U this summer. According to the press release, DuckTales Remastered has seen the development team take the levels and layout from the original 1989 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; while Scrooge McDuck’s Museum allows players to track all their stats and compare their progress with others via global leaderboards.
