Life is like a hurricane, as Capcom today announced that DuckTales: Remastered will officially release from this August on all major platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. In North America, the game will be available for digital download on August 13 (on PSN, Nintendo eShop on Wii U and PC), with an XBLA version launching 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!
