Capcom today confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered will release across North America and Europe as a digital download for PC, PS3, Wii U and X360 starting from today, and it will be priced at $14.99 / €14.99 / 1200 Microsoft Points. DuckTales: Remastered once again follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they explore different themed worlds on their search for five legendary treasures.
According to the press release, DuckTales: Remastered has seen the development team at Way Forward take the levels and layout from the original release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience; but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.
Further additions to the original include an all new tutorial level where players can get familiar with the iconic pogo jump and cane swing and Scrooge McDuck’s very own Money Bin stage where Scrooge can dive into his dimes collected from each level directly off the springboard.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
