As was announced at Microsoft’s E3 2013 presentation, 4J Studios will be bringing its open-world block-building game to the Xbox One.

The Xbox One edition promises to deliver on the power of next-gen gaming by giving players more of what they want.

Ducktales Remastered has been rebuilt from the ground up based on the 8-bit skeleton of 1990’s Ducktales.
