In a move that surprised just about everyone, Capcom took to PAX East today to announce Ducktales Remastered, a complete remake of the classic NES game being developed by WayForward Technologies.
It will launch this summer for $14.99 on PlayStation Network, 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Arcade and $15 on the Wii U eShop.
Character sprites have been redone as gorgeous hand-drawn art, while the world will be rendered in 3D. Disneys team of voice actors will be working on the game, and all of the game’s original 8 bit songs will be remastered. Newly added elements will include a tutorial, a museum and the ability to swim through Scrooge’s money bin.
“We’re literally pouring our heart and soul into this title,” said Capcom’s Rey Jimenez. “It’s going to play just like you remember.”
Hey, let’s have a sing-a-long.
