DuckTales: Remastered launched today on Xbox LIVE for $14.99 / €14.99. Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System , DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of the generation’s seminal platform titles.
DuckTales: Remastered once again follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they explore different themed worlds on their search for five legendary treasures.
The development team at WayForward have taken the levels and layout from the original release and expanded on them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience; but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.
Furthermore, Capcom are giving fans the chance to be featured on the Capcom Unity YouTube channel. All you have to do is perform your own version of the classic DuckTales theme at their sing-a-long site.
