DuckTales Remastered will revisit NES classic, coming to PSN this summer

  • Posted March 22nd, 2013 at 16:46 EDT by Kyle Prahl

Capcom and development studio WayForward Technologies will bring DuckTales Remastered, an HD remake of the classic NES sidescroller, to PlayStation Network this summer.

The news broke at PAX East 2013 earlier today, where Capcom announced that DuckTales Remastered will be a love letter to fans of the original DuckTales. Everything from the cartoon's iconic theme song to the game's 8-bit audio tracks will be intact and remastered, alongside hand-drawn sprites that exist in 3D-rendered levels. Disney voice actors will also bring their talents to the remake.

A few new additions, including a tutorial and Scrooge's Money Bin, round out a PSN package that will cost $14.99 when it launches this summer. No word yet on PS Vita support.

Check out the game's reveal trailer below, and sound off in the comments if you're excited to relive the glory days of 2D platforming through this long dormant property.
