Yesterday a large portion of the gaming community went insane. Capcom announced that they were releasing a remastered version of their 1989 DuckTales Nintendo game. This summer it will be showing up on Xbox Live, Playstation Network, and the Wii U shop. So why is everyone so excited about a video game based on a Disney cartoon that used to run on weekday afternoons?
DuckTales shared a lot of the same creative team as the Megaman games. So you have non-linear game play, controls that were innovative at the time, and fantastic sound and graphics. Again this was all for a game tied into a cartoon. There is no doubt that nostalgia is coloring people’s excitement here, but make no mistake that DuckTales is a damn good game.
That F’ing Monkey would like to apologize in advance. We realize watching the above video once will have you singing the Ducktales theme song for the rest of the day.
