Capcom digs deep into the vault to remaster DuckTales

Capcom teams up with WayForward to remaster the classic NES platformer

Capcom finally gets the picture and gives the their fans exactly what they've wanted for so long...DUCKTALES!

It's PAX East and Capcom has revealed their plans to remaster the classic DuckTales NES platformer. The company joins hands with WayForward (known for Mighty Switch Force and the Shante games) to remaster the game.

Now, if you've finished reciting the entire theme song, I should mention that they're aiming for release in Summer 2013 for XBL, PSN, and the Wii U.

Thanks to KOTAKU & CAPCOM-UNITY

    @Ashley Yeah, though there are still some really great shows: Avatar, Phineas & Ferb, and Adventure Time. (Moreso for writing than animation, though.)

    @Ste You just don't see animation like that in children's shows anymore. It's a shame.

    The Onion's AV Club had a great article about a month ago that talked about how Duck Tales ushered in a golden age of animated TV shows:

    I had not thought about how much I loved the duck tales show in a while. Definitely going to pick up this game. Anyone know where I can find the show online?

    So excited about this! I'm pretty sure I made a mildly embarrassing noise when I walked by the Capcom booth and saw people playing...somewhere between a gasp and a squee. Also, that's an awesomely close release date!

    I loved the original DuckTales game on the Gameboy. I'm pretty sure I played that for months ...
