DuckTales Remastered was unveiled at PAX East and is being developed by WayForward Technologies. Many fans are excited for the re-make of the game, which will include an expanded plot since the original game didn’t have much of one at all.
WayForward Technologies have gone to great lengths to explain the many details of the game, including why Scrooge’s nephews have been kidnapped in the first place. Capcom producer Rey Jimenez stated in an interview with Siliconera:
“In the original NES version, you go in the UFO to find the remote control to open the area to get to the boss. You don’t really know why. The game doesn’t explain it well. In the NES version, you fight a big rat and it didn’t explain why you’re fighting a rat on the moon. That’s explained in here because there are rats they’re experimenting on and you let them loose and that becomes the rat down there. Also, how does Scrooge McDuck breathes on the moon? We explain that as well.”
The game will be headed to the Wii U eShop later this summer.
