There’s a certain generation of youngsters who lived and breathed beautifully-made side scrollers for NES and SNES. (We loved our Sega Genesis too, but you know that SNES had the prettier games.) Capcom has been busy tapping into console gamer nostalgia of late, and now the company is offering up a completely remastered and enhanced version of DuckTales.
“The DuckTales gang has been brought back to life with absolutely luscious hand-drawn animation so as to better reflect the high-caliber animation Disney’s known for,” reads a Capcom blog post. “Every frame of movement from the original is represented, redefined and expanded upon.”
Coming this summer for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U, the game gives classic characters such as Launchpad and the trio of Huey, Dewey, and Louie a more prominent role, and Capcom and WayForward managed to bring back all the surviving voice talent for the project. There will be some interesting extras with the game, including a Duckburg museum and a money bin that you can swim in.
Watch the trailer to get that theme song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. DuckTales, woo-oo!
