DuckTales: Remastered features the game's original stages, with some portions having been redesigned to include new objectives which must be completed before the stage can be completed. The end of stage bosses were also given new patterns and also included in the remastering were new areas such as a tutorial section set in Scrooge's vault as well as a new final stage set in Mount Vesuvius.

Another addition was Scrooge's Money Bin (allowing players to dive and swim in the money they collect!) and a museum which allows players to purchase unlockable concept art and music using the money they collect whilst playing. Finally Scrooge's iconic pogo-jump can now be executed via a single button press (with the option to turn on "hard pogo jump").

The Wii U version supports Off-TV Play and displays the map on the GamePad screen during regular play.

A plot was also added into the game explaining the motives behind visiting each of the games various locales and providing justification behind why Scrooge is able to breathe whilst on the moon. The surviving members of the original cast of the DuckTales animated TV series also reprised their roles and feature in the game.

The graphical style of the remastering was a 2.5D blend of 2D hand drawn character sprites and 3D modelled levels, the backgrounds and layouts being created by Disney Television artists Mike Peraza and Rick Evans.

The soundtrack meanwhile was remastered by Jake 'Virt' Kaufman to create more modern sounding take of the renown original soundtrack and the game allows players to toggle between the remastered and 8-bit soundtrack upon beating the game once.
