Capcom will ‘rewrite history’ this summer with DuckTales Remastered, a 2.5D update of the classic NES game for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Wii U eShop.
The 8-bit sprites have been replaced with hand-drawn animation so characters will have the proper color scheme and details like mummy bandages unwrapping are done frame by frame rather than in an indiscernible flash of light. The fully fleshed out characters will be voiced by the television show’s original cast, including 93-year-old Alan Young as Scrooge McDuck.
The notoriously difficult gameplay will be easier by default, producer Rey Jimenez told Polygon.
“Gamers are just different today,” Jimenez explains. “We had to make it significantly easier and more accessible. If you want the pure experience we are reproducing that with the harder difficulties.”
Each level will have a new introduction and ending but the money shot is a golden shower! Players can recreate the iconic scenes where Scrooge dives into his money bin and swims in gold, which will be directly proportional to the amount of gems collected.
