Capcom today announced that DuckTales: Remastered will officially release beginning this August on all major platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. In North America, the game will be available for digital download on August 13 (on PSN, Nintendo eShop on Wii U and PC), with an XBLA version launching September 11.
Additionally, on August 20, a collectible boxed version (with download code and exclusive DuckTales Disney collector’s pin) will be offered on PlayStation 3 at retailers across the country.
DuckTales: Remastered is priced at $14.99 for the digital version and $19.99 for the retail version on PS3.
To help celebrate this quack-tastic news, Capcom has released the very first “Duckumentary” video, which goes behind the scenes with the developers at WayForward. The series of videos (beginning today and released every other week until the game’s launch) chronicles the creative process of bringing back Scrooge McDuck and one of the most cherished 8-bit titles of all time to current generation gaming platforms.
Additional “Travel Tip” videos from Launchpad McQuack will begin releasing next week and up until “launch,” so be on the lookout for those as well!
Capcom will be bringing playable copies of DuckTales: Remastered to San Diego Comic-Con along with Scrooge McDuck’s money bin, recently seen in the iam8bit gallery.
DuckTales: Remastered is a hand-crafted reimagining of one of the most iconic Disney 8-bit titles. Featuring hand-drawn animated sprites, original Disney Character Voices talent and richly painted level backgrounds from the classic cartoon TV series, Scrooge McDuck and family come to life like never before. The gameplay retains the authenticity of its 8-bit predecessor, simple and fun, with slight modifications to improve gameplay flow and design. Embark on an authentic DuckTales adventure, as Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie travel to exotic locations throughout the world in their quest to retrieve the 5 Legendary Treasures.
