DUCKTALES: REMASTERED Flies to Retail Stores Beginning Today

It’s time to solve a mystery, or re-write history, as Capcom is excited to announce that the disc-based version of DuckTales: Remastered is available now in retail store shelves across North America. Fans of the digital version, or new players who have yet to experience the nostalgic re-imagining of the iconic title, can now pick up this disc-based alternative for $19.99 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.

To help celebrate this quack-tastic event, the team has put together an all new “Duckstep” video that is guaranteed to shake your tail feathers.

Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System , DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of the generation’s seminal platform titles. 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.

The development team at WayForward have taken the levels and layout from the original release and expanded on 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.

Youmacon 2013 Gaming Room

One of the biggest Youmacon 2013 surprises for me was the game room. Originally we stopped in as a way to waste time, but we ended up spending a few hours at the gaming oasis. Aside from the loud music of the rave and the craziness that was the After-Dark panels, the gaming room was filled to the brim with classic and modern arcade games. Everything from rhythm to fighting, home consoles to Virtual Reality was stuffed into the perfectly sized room. There was a huge setup for PC gamers where they hosted the League of Legends stream, an entire section of wall dedicated to Super Bomberman, and a ton of rhythm games.
Check out our gallery, and if you can, check out Youmacon 2013 next year and pop into the game room!

“There are a lot of kids who aren’t able to play games with their friends because they are patients in hospitals. Youmacon proudly supports the efforts of Extra Life, a charity which is raising money for children’s miracle network hospitals. Our current goal is to raise $1,500 for Beaumont Children’s Hospital. We believe video games can help bring a brighter future to Beaumont’s patients, and you can help prove that by donating to our campaign.

While each of us can be heroes in the games we play, by contributing to extra life, we can be heroes in real life. Join the thousands of gamers who do. Please help Youmacon support the children of Beaumont! Thank you!”
