The lights are on
Out of PAX East comes good news for old-school Capcom fans:
the company is working on new titles in the DuckTales and Mega Man franchises.
The news came today during the Capcom panel at PAX East.
The DuckTales games will be in the able hands of WayForward
Technologies, which has a knack for reimagining classic 8- and 16-bit era
games, as proven by WayForward developed titles like Contra 4 and Double Dragon
Neon. While not much is known about the new DuckTales game, it will be inspired
by the NES game.
On the Mega Man front, Capcom community manager Brett Elston
said that the company is developing a new Mega Man title, though he declined to
share any information about the game. In addition, he said that Mega Man 4
(April 25) and Mega Man 5 (May 16) will be hitting the 3DS eShop.

Funny: I have Duck Tales on the NES. Love all that 8-bit music.
my only requirements for a new DuckTales game are that it's an platformer and has music just as amazing as the first one. I still listen to the moon level theme on loop sometimes.
My inner child just passed out in excitement! If the trailer indicates what Wayforward is capable of, Ducktales is in good hands. If this game does well, I would love to see a new Gargoyles game done by them as well.
Life is like a hurr-icaaaaneeeeee ~
BREAKING NEWS! THE MEGA MAN GAME THAT WAS ANNOUNCED WAS JUST CANCELLED. CAPCOM CITES THE REASON AS BEING NOT GIVING A CRAP ABOUT THE FRANCHISE AND BEING TOO BUSY CREATING NEW CUSTOM GEMS FOR STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN. BUY NOW!!!
I would not be nearly as excited as I currently am had I not watched the Ducktales Replay. Thumbs up Replay!
Ducktales?! Well, at least the Mega Man news is good, as long as he's not fat and slow this time.
What a good timing!! I've been playing the first one on my DreamCast via emulation ^_^ My neice loves that game.
Best news of the week.
Declined information about the Mega Man game? Like, can't throw a bone to us? *sigh* here's to hoping it's an actual new game, with new features, levels and design and not a re-release or some half-arsed phone game..
Amazing news about Ducktales. I'm just so excited.
Wow I need that ringtone.
Heck to the Yeah! A new Duck Tales game!!!=D
A revamped classic version for both DuckTales and Mega Man...; who could ask for anything more. (Hums classic Mega Man themes and DuckTales). ^_^
Oh man, I can't wait until they inevitably cancel this!
As long as they aren't Android or iOS money grabs I will be super psyched for these!
