One of two games hinted ahead of Capcom’s ‘World of Capcom’ panel at this weekend’s PAX East Expo, Capcom have announced that a new DuckTales game is in development by WayForward Technologies with the release of a trailer (below.)
A full remake of the original 1989 NES classic DuckTales, the new game – appropriately titled DuckTales Remastered – will be coming to Wii U, XBLA and PSN in Summer 2013 at around the $15 price mark. It’ll be featuring new graphics, voice acting and music so it’s not just a typical souped-up edition of an old game, but rather literally a complete remake.
Considering the original Mega Man-like game is thought to be a highlight of the NES by many, it’s come as quite a surprise announcement but certainly a welcome one. I condone Capcom remaking old classic games. More, please!
