I may be a little late to the party, but wow I still can’t believe that the NES version of Ducktales is getting remastered. Nostalgia in full effect over here! Earlier this year, our very own Mr.B4 captured some footage of the game during PAX east. Today I found another video. An NES Vs. Remastered comparison video below by IGN. I’m blown away on how good it looks.
The funny thing about this is that I never finished the original game. Even as a kid, I was aware at the fact that most video games created after movies or cartoons rarely lived up to the hype. I actually learned my lesson the hard way with Friday the 13th for the NES. However, the memories I have of the game and for that matter the whole DuckTales’ universe is something I will never forget and I will always have a special place for it in my heart. With that said, I think you should take a look at the video below and see the incredible work the people over at WayForward have accomplished. Not only is Ducktales Remastered updated with hand-drawn art, but the game has the original cartoon’s voice actors, including now 93 years young Alan young who voices Scrooge McDuck.
Ducktales Remastered is scheduled to arrive this summer for Wii U eShop, PSN, XBLA, and PC.
