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.

BOOMSHOCKALOCKA!!! Can't wait to hear more about this and the Blue Bomber!
It's like I'm 12 all over again. Oh nostalgia.
DuckTales was easily one of my favorite games on NES - I welcome a sequel so long as it's 2D and I can still bounce around on that cane.
Wonder what kind of mega man game they will put out, duck tales looks interesting I've never played the original one.
Ducktales... oh this year just got SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better.
I wish it were pure 2D, but this isn't offensive since they didn't seem to screw with the actual game(s? Please be both). Hasn't Rayman taught us anything, that you don't need to use 3D in a 2D side-scroller, there's something they need to bring back. True 2D games, none of this 2.5D crap.
I was just talking about this show and game. I LOVE this series and this is a first day, no question asked, purchase. Now to get the show on DVD asap! Woo-oo!!
I hope the Mega Man game they're talking about is Mega Man Legends 3!
TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is it possible that Capcom may redeem themselves after all these years? I sure hope so.
How extremely random, but great news. WayForward is a great dev for this too. I wonder is Disney bringing back the Ducktales franchise?
My inner child just shed a tear of joy. Bring back the whole Disney Afternoon crew (Darkwing Duck, Tailspin, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers, etc.) and I'll be a happy big kid Lol! Hope Ducktales 2 gets a reimage as well!
I am so happy for this my favorite retro game getting some love.
Life just got a little better!
What a pleasant surprise, one of my favorite NES classics getting a remake?
Take my money already Capcom!
Ducktales WOOOO OOOO.
Damn it's been a long time since i've heard that.
