DuckTales Remastered Comes Out August 13
Classic NES platformer DuckTales is being remade for a modern audience this year by the 2D platforming masters at WayForward. It was only given a vague Summer 2013 launch date when it was announced at PAX East earlier this year, but now we know the game is coming next month.
Capcom announced today that DuckTales Remastered will be hitting the PS3, Wii U and PC on August 13. Unfortunately, the game won’t be out on Xbox 360 until September 11. The delay could possibly be due to Xbox Live Arcade’s slots being filled all throughout August due to the Summer of Arcade.
DuckTales Remastered will be available on all platforms for $14.99. If you feel like spending $5 more and own a PS3, you can get the PS3 exclusive retail edition of the title that comes with a download code and a collector pin for $19.99. The retail edition will launch a bit later on August 20.
To coincide with the announcement of the game’s release, Capcom has released a new video cleverly titled “Wayforward Duckumentaries” that goes into how the developers updated the NES classic for modern hardware. It also covers how Wayforward nailed the “authentic Disney look and feel” for the game. Spoilers: They contracted one of the original artists from the DuckTales TV series.[h/t: Polygon]
