Capcom Brings Back "DuckTales: Remastered" For Download

Back in 2013, Capcom released DuckTales: Remastered, which was a modern version of the classic NES title we all know and love. Last year, for reasons that were never explained, the game was pulled from digital stores so no one could download the game again. (We assumed it was a rights issue because of Disney.) That changed this week as Capcom announced it had brought the game back. You can currently download the game on PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One (backward compatible), Wii U and Steam. No word yet if they'll push the game to PS4 or Nintendo Switch.

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!

Keeping with the gameplay of the 8-bit classic, you can platform and pogo-jump your way through fantastic locales while enjoying modern touches and gameplay improvements as Scrooge and family search for the five Legendary Treasures. When you're in between adventures, make sure to take a swan – er, duck – dive into Scrooge's famous money bin as his wealth grows with each successful escapade!
