After popular demand, Capcom-Unity has excitedly announced an additional PC release for DuckTales Remastered, the modernized rendition of Scrooge McDuck’s NES adventure from 1989. The game had originally been announced for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and the Nintendo Wii U e-Shop. It will now also be available on Steam, Origin, and other downloading outlets including Impulse, Green Man Gaming, and Gamersgate.
The PC version of DuckTales Remastered will be available during the same release period as the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U versions; and will similarly cost $14.99. It is scheduled to launch between the second and third quarters of 2013. Capcom will announce more information on DuckTales Remastered during the time leading up to E3, and will also show more remastered levels based on the 1989 NES game.
DuckTales Remastered is developed by WayForward Technologies with collaboration from Disney. All the original voice actors from the original DuckTales animated series — Alan Young, June Foray, Alan Oppenheimer, Russi Taylor, Frank Welker, Terry McGovern, Tony Anselmo, and the rest of the cast — will be reprising their roles for the game.
This new game will please many fans of the animated series and NES game, as it marries the qualities of animation through hand-drawn sprites and voice-acting, with classic 2D-platforming design.
