Nintendo has been doing something similar with the New Super Mario Bros.:  recreating classic scenes of best selling games on newer installments. However, people have been asking for “the same game, with upgraded graphics”

Well, that’s apparently what Disney and Capcom are doing with the Remastered version of Ducktales.


The games was released in 1989 and used to play on 8-bit NES. It had quite a success. There was sequels, and the game was even featured on the front page of Nintendo Power!


The remaster includes adding what was not possible at the time: more & smoother animations to all characters including those who just cameoed the game, voices using a lot of the original TV show’s voice actors, better graphics and nice backgrounds.


The game has been revealed since March, but progress has been made since, and gameplay was featured during San Diego Comic Con.

Gameplay sure looks similar to the classic NES version, and we’ve seen in the Mega Man renewal that Capcom is good at making retro games feels authentic. With luck, they’ll capture that 80’s style gaming experience that the New Super Mario Bros. lacks.

The game will hit PC, PSN & WiiU e-shop on August 13th, PS3 August 20th and XBLA September 11th.
