The lights are on
Capcom is set to take its dive in Scrooge's money vault starting next month with digital and retail releases. If you want to play it as soon as its available though, your platform selection won't be entirely open.
On August 13, DuckTales Remastered will arrive on PlayStation Network, Nintendo eShop on Wii U, and PC. Xbox Live Arcade will join the party on September 11.
For those looking for something a bit more tangible, a retail PlayStation 3 release is coming on August 20. It will include a download code and a DuckTales collector pin, and come with a $5 premium price increase over the $14.99 online purchase.
In the first of a series of "duckumentaries," you'll see how developer Wayforward is approaching level design, an updated art style, and capturing the feel of the original DuckTales cartoon.

Sweet. I would have preferred if PS3 got TMNT first instead, but at I am still okay with this one!
Can't wait to play this polished version, loved the original when I was a kid.
Very neat! Are the characters going to have that white outline around them? Scrooge kind of looks like a little sticker.
I would sincerely hope that the retail release would have something more than just a pin for $5 more. Hopefully there is some artwork or something along those lines if the game is merely a downloadable code.
So, Ducktales is coming out for PS3 next month and Xbox in September, yet TMNT: Out of the Shadows comes out for Xbox bext month and September for PS3... That's screwed up.
I'll probably get it for PS3 then; September will be split between the beginning of the Fall Semester... and GTAV.
Well I guess Xbox can't get everything first, but I'll be there in August ready and raring to go!
They should release Ducktales 2's level next, as free or paid DLC for Ducktales Remastered, and release Ducktales on Steam.
This has to be hitting my nostalgia bone, because for some reason, I really want that $20 surprise (at least to me) PS3 retail release. I have no idea why... but at least it has a download code anyway. I'd rather have this game digitally, and always available on the XMB, than having to put a disc in. But a boxed copy of this title? Man... for someone who owned both NES Ducktales, I WANT THAT.
I actually would like to see more digital games get retail releases. Both to increase awareness for killer downloadable games, and also to fill up gaps in a release schedule. Nintendo, for example, could keep a steady stream of titles coming to the Wii U if they "promoted" digital games to retail in the future. Games like a $20 "LostWinds HD Collection" should be no-brainers to fill up the Wii U release schedule... but NOA is really stupid.
