Capcom’s HD revival of a certain duck-centric cult classic is right around the corner, and in preparation for the approaching release of Ducktales Remastered, we’ve received a postcard reminding us of the adventures in store. Duckburg’s loveable pilot Launchpad McQuack sends his regards from high atop the snow-capped Himalayas, in search of the Crown of Gengis Khan to presumably cast into Scrooge’s money bin – though it belongs in a museum.
Ducktales Remastered has been rebuilt from the ground up based on the 8-bit skeleton of 1990’s Ducktales. The levels, the music, even some of the original voice actors all make a return with spruced up aesthetics and a host of new content to flesh out the experience. Ducktales Remastered’s adventure begins September 11 on Xbox Live Arcade, priced at 1200 MSP. To check out Launchpad’s digital how-ya-doing, hit the jump for the trailer.
If PAX East 2013 is remembered for anything, it will undoubtedly be the contagion that swept the showroom floor. It wasn’t some handshake-induced strain that whipped through attendees and across the vast reaches of the internet. It was something far more potent: the long-dreamed resurrection of DuckTales and its infectious tune, spreading with airborne hums and whistles. By day’s end nowhere was safe, and among the eager mobs huddled around Capcom’s display booth hoping to catch a glimpse of their childhoods, it was ground zero.
When sounds of the infectious DuckTales Remastered theme song caught the ear of XBLAFans, we naturally investigated. We were intent on finding the culprit, daring to believe rumors of the nostalgic possibilities at the end of the line. What we found was Capcom Senior Product Marketing Manager Matt Dahlgren manning an arcade machine surrounded by toe-tapping onlookers and a flurry of questions.
“The whole game has been built from the ground up. They did start with the 8-bit version but everything’s been layered on top of it,” said Dahlgren, speaking of developer WayForward Technologies. “It has hand-drawn and animated sprites – the game looks like the cartoon.”
