DuckTales: Remastered released originally back in 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, then followed by a PC and mobile devices launch in 2015. WayForward Technologies and Capcom's re-imagination of the 1989 adventure platformer was eventually delisted from all storefronts. Since the 8th of August 2019, DuckTales: Remastered was removed, with no clear explanation as to why but the best guess was licensing issues between Capcom and Disney.
If you didn't get the chance to play it while it was available, the studio decided its time to bring it back. DuckTales: Remastered is finally back on all digital stores and available for purchase on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Steam. Xbox One owners will get to enjoy the title as well via Microsoft's backwards compatibility support. Capcom's latest blog post revealed the news, and urged those who missed out on the title when it was available.
If you missed this gem the first time around, now’s the perfect time to dive in. Calling back to the golden age of 8-bit gaming and Saturday morning cartoons, DuckTales: Remastered features hand-drawn animated sprites that bring each character to life in a vibrant world. Duckburg and the many exotic locales you’ll visit have never looked better thanks to hand-painted backgrounds from the original cartoon. The original Disney Character Voice talent reprise their roles from the cartoon with pitch-perfect performances… you’ll swear you’ve stepped into an episode of the classic DuckTales cartoon!
Unfortunately, fans expecting the title to arrive on current-gen consoles might be a little disappointed as the studio never mentioned the possibility, even in the most recent blog post. For now, DuckTales: Remastered is once again available on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Steam, and Xbox One through backwards compatibility.
