DuckTales Remastered was released digitally back in August, but after some consideration Capcom made the decision to physically release the game in North America. For those of you who were waiting to get your hands on the Wii U edition, you’ll be able to purchase it with an exclusive DuckTales pin from Target stores.
Ducktales Remastered, which has only been available until now as an eShop title, will be hitting the Wii U in physical form on November 12th, in addition to arriving on PS3 and Xbox 360. To commemorate the release, Capcom is offering an exclusive Scrooge McDuck pin to Wii U owners who pick up the game at Target. The new remastered version of the classic game contains updated graphics and a healthy amount of new content. Capcom has stated that the continued release of remastered games will depend on the level of success attained by Ducktales. Will you be purchasing a physical copy of the game? Let us know in the comments.
Capcom has announced that the well-received DuckTales Remastered will be released on disc in North America for Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The disc based version of DuckTales Remastered will be coming in stores on November 12th for $19.99, that’s $5 more than the downloadable version on the eShop.
Earlier this year, Capcom said they were open to creating more Disney remastered editions of past games such as Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck, with the former being the most likely to receive a remake first. Now, it appears the company has reiterated their stance over on the Capcom Unity forum boards, but it all depends on how well DuckTales Remastered is received by the gamer fan-base.
Capcom employee Jimmy Rey has posted on the boards saying that it all boils down to DuckTales’ sales performance. So, if you want another remastered Disney edition, and to share in the adventures of those cheeky chipmunks Chip N’ Dale, or maybe dark-haired “Street Rat” Aladdin, then you better open up those wallets. DuckTales Remastered is available now in the Wii U eShop.
“The better DuckTales does, the more likely we’ll do another.” – Jimmy Rey, Capcom Employee
A new interview with WayForward’s Matt Bozon and Voldi Way, developers of Ducktales Remastered is now accessible on YouTube, on the date of the game’s release for Wii U. The pair of developers say that the new levels in the game make for “40% new content.” They also touch on the unique backgrounds in the game, which were designed in 3D and “look like they move in 3D” according to the developers, even though they are presented in 2D. The game is available today in the Wii U eshop.
