Music was incredibly important to DuckTales game for NES. One could even argue that the music was the single most important factor in ensuring the game remained popular to this day. The folks at Capcom and WayForward realize this, and want to assure fans that they’re making music a priority in the remake.
In the latest “duckumentary,” the developers at WayForward talk about how they approached sound and music in DuckTales Remastered. They revealed that voice acting wasn’t even a consideration when they first started working on the game, but Disney approached them a few months in with the opportunity to bring in the original voice actors from the game. They wrote a larger script to take advantage of this opportunity.
As for music, the composer says that he approached the songs with his own style while keeping the original composition intact. In the below video, we also get our first chance to hear the remastered Moon theme. I’ll let you form your own opinions on it, but I’m already a fan. In fact, all of the new music is pretty amazing.
DuckTales Remastered launches on August 13 for the PS3, Wii U and PC. It launches a month later on September 11 for the Xbox 360.
