Capcom's Nintendo NES Classic 'DuckTales' Set For HD Re-Imagination in 'DuckTales Remastered'

Capcom-Nintendo-NES-DuckTales-Set-For-HD-Re-imagination-in-DuckTales-RemasteredDuring today's PAX East event an announcement was made by Capcom which should have retro gamers bouncing on their pogo sticks. The Japanese publisher has joined forces with WayForward to recreate an old Nintendo NES classic, DuckTales, in the all new and updated DuckTales Remastered.

This HD remake/re-imagining of the iconic 1989 platformer was announced at the "World of Capcom" panel at PAX East 2013. It is set to hit the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Wii U eShop this summer.

WayForward have opted for a hand-drawn animation style for Scrooge McDuck and the various other in-game characters and enemies, whilst the environments will be in the much loved 2.5D perspective. This style was soon demonstrated in a game trailer which has been uploaded to YouTube - one complete with the timeless sing-along theme tune found in the original cartoon. But if that wasn't enough already, Disney's authentic voice actors will be adding their sparkle to the game.

3rd best NES game of all time! Can't wait to play this again. Hopefully they keep the Moon theme. Sad to not see this on Vita.
