Ducktales Remastered

For those of all ages who love animation and have nostalgic memories for Disney cartoons, you were probably shocked and thrilled — like I was — upon discovering Capcom’s disclosure for DuckTales Remastered at PAX East.

According to our previous articleDuck Tales Remastered is currently in development by Jack Kaufman of WayForward Games, and will be released on the WiiU eShop, XBLA, and PSN this summer. Additionally, the article says there will be official Disney voice talents at work, but does not include any names.

Fortunately, however, Capcom’s Christian Svensson disclosed at the Capcom Unity forums that all the series’ voice actors will indeed reprise their roles for DuckTales Remastered—including the legendary Alan Young, the voice behind Scrooge McDuckSvensson also writes with praise about Mr. Young, who is 93 years old, yet still works like a professional despite his old age, and that his talent adds a ton of value into the product.

Reading into the forums, the inception for DuckTales Remastered came into fruition upon heavy fan-request. You can read the view of the Capcom-Unity Thread, as well as read Mr. Svensson’s confirming the actors below:

Admittedly, I have never played the original version of DuckTales on NES, so I am really thrilled to see what all the fuss is about by gamers and game designers alike. And knowing WayForward and its games, the remastered version’s craft and design are likely to be incredible.

And hopefully, there will be enough voice-acting to satisfy the inner-children by folks who grew up watching DuckTales, and who continue to support the careers for the show’s actors. Seeing as how modern game development has allowed integration between narrative and design structure, there will be a strong possibility that there will be plenty of voice-work by these talents. Thus, this could very well transcend the original’s identity and take it to new heights.

  • Alan Young is 93

  • You have to admire that guy’s dedication to his work. At 93, he’s still willing to take the time to revisit his past role on a venture that probably won’t net him very much profit. Kudos to you, Alan Young.
