DuckTales: Remastered is a remake of the popular NES platformer released way back in 1989, but will soon disappear from digital store shelves. Capcom announced the news in a blog post but, didn’t explain why it was being pulled. So we are all still very curious about what is going on here.
DuckTales: Remastered was released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U back in 2013, before heading to iOS, Android and Windows Phone in early 2015. Developer Wayforward replaced the original visuals with brighter, more detailed characters and backdrops. They also added some fully-voiced cutscenes that critics actually did not like. They found them tedious and unnecessary.
Well, the game is on its way out. It will be pulled on August 8th at these times: 4:59 PM PDT (Wii U), 8AM PDT (PlayStation 3), 5PM PDT (Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backwards compatibility) and 4:59 PM PDT (Steam). If you want to own a digital copy, Capcom is offering a 75 percent “farewell price drop”.
If you want to play the game in the future there’s the original NES cartridge, a physical copy of DuckTales Remastered, or The Disney Afternoon Collection, which has the original (non-remaster) versions of DuckTales and DuckTales 2. Have fun with this classic.
