DuckTales Remastered was announced a few days ago during Capcom’s panel at PAX East: the game will be a remake of the original DuckTales platform game released back in 1989 for Nintendo NES. DuckTales is considered as an all time-classic thanks to some clever level design. Being based on a successful Disney cartoon series also helped the game get even more successful.
Capcom has announced that the cartoon’s voice cast will be back for DuckTales Remastered: Christian Svensson, Capcom USA vice president, stated that Scrooge’s voice actor is now 94 years old but still recorded voices for the game, together with the rest of the cast. The inclusion of voice acting really adds a lot to the package and it will certainly be good for all nostalgics who enjoyed the cartoon series as kids so many years ago.
Svensson also talked about how Capcom decided to remake the game: apparently a lot of gamers have asked for it and a year and a half ago Svensson started working with Disney to make this remaster a reality. Once Disney was on board, the concept of the project was sent to Japan for approval. Even after getting green-lighted everything has been kept under wraps until a few days ago: not even Capcom Japan saw a build of the game before the official unveiling at PAX East.
DuckTales Remastered will launch on PSN, Xbox Live Arcade and Wii U eShop during Summer.
