Capcom has advised us that ‘DuckTales” Remastered’ will start releasing domestically on August 13, 2013. On that date, it will be available as a digital download on Sony PlayStation’s PSN, Nintendo’s eShop for Wii U and for PC; the Microsoft Xbox 360 XBLA edition will be available for download on September 11. Additionally, on August 20, a boxed version (with download code and exclusive DuckTales Disney collector’s pin) will be offered on PlayStation 3 at retailers across the country. DuckTales: Remastered is priced at $14.99 for the digital version and $19.99 for the retail version on PS3.
To help celebrate this quack-tastic news, the team has released the very first ‘Duckumentary’ video, which goes behind the scenes with the talented developers at WayForward. The series of videos (beginning today and released every other week until the game’s launch) chronicles the creative process of bringing back Scrooge McDuck and one of the most cherished 8-bit titles of all time to current generation gaming platforms. Additional ‘Travel Tip’ videos from Launchpad McQuack will begin releasing next week and up until ‘launch,’ so be on the lookout for those as well!
UPDATE: Capcom has graciously provided us with artwork for the exclusive ‘DuckTales: Remastered’ pin that wil come with the boxed collector’s edition.
