Rewriting history with ‘DuckTales Remastered’
DuckTales has been away for a long time. Ever since the animated series ended its run in 1990, we haven’t heard much from Uncle Scrooge and his great-nephews — but Capcom is hoping to change that. The company recently announced that it was working on a remastered version of the beloved NES version of DuckTales, slated to hit the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U as a downloadable release sometime this summer. And with the help of Disney and developer WayForward Technologies, the new title is aiming to not only be faithful to the game it’s based on, but also the show. WayForward is working to ensure that the game plays the way you remember it, albeit with a few new twists, while Disney is helping out by providing everything from original art assets to the real voice actors from the show — Alan Young, who plays Scrooge, is on board, despite being in his mid-90s. “We really respect the original vision,” WayForward’s Austin Ivansmith tells The Verge.
