Trailer of the new game.

Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of that generation's seminal platform 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.

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.

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® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii U™ this summer.


This kinda came out of left field but I am actually kinda hyped for this, I loved the original game and tv show.

Girlfriend would love this but doesn't look like it's out on 3DS, just the Wii U shop. Shame.

Haha, I love the transition from an epic intro of quotes to a sudden "feel-good/happy" trailer. I remembered playing a Duck Tales game when I was little (probably on the Gameboy). I don't remember much except the cane jumping looks familiar and there was a Himalayas stage or something like that.

I have fond memories of this game on the NES as a young child so I am very much looking forward to its eventual release. It was such a great platformer (from what I remember) so an update will be much appreciated.

I seem to remember it also had some bad ass music! Hopefully they can do that justice with an update/remix.
