DuckTales Remastered Coming to PC, Woo-oo!
If Buzzfeed has taught me anything, the early 2010s is all about feeling the feels, and reminiscing over the clear plastic blow-up furniture and orange VHS tapes of yore. (Also, Tamagotchis. Guys. Tamagotchi app out on Google Play and Apple App store. Just sayin’.)
The video game industry is far from immune to this trend, if the release of such nostalgia-hitting titles like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and the re-releases of classic titles like Age of Empires II: HD Edition are anything to go by. Here to join the likes of Earthworm Jim is DuckTales Remastered. The updated version of the classic NES game was announced earlier for the Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U, but mice and keyboards united in demanding a release for the PC as well.
CAPCOM announced on their site yesterday:
“You guys demanded it, so we’re unbelievably happy to announce that your most requested platform will indeed be receiving DuckTales: Remastered! Yep, Capcom’s heartwarming collaboration with Disney and WayForward will definitely be pogoing onto hard drives everywhere via Steam, Origin, Impulse, GamersGate, Green Man Gaming and numerous other places PC gamers download their wares.”
Release dates have not yet been confirmed, but they appear to be slated for roughly the same time “soon” and are rumored to be set at about $15 USD.
I’ll be honest. I had no idea DuckTales Remastered was even a thing until I saw the announcement for PC pop up on my Facebook. Since then, I’ve scoured YouTube for trailers and sung along with the songs and squeaked happy little noises over the sight of moon ghosts. I can’t even see the word DuckTales without mentally breaking into song (Woo-oo!).
Tell me. Can you?
