Ha, they anticipated of course that I would want to sing the theme song. Well played, Capcom, well played.

For whatever reason I never did - but obviously should have - played Duck Tales back in 89. I will more than likely get whatever WayForward puts out anyway, but I'm especially happy to see this classic coming back.

Also, music by virt...

3D environments in a 2D game. Fuck 'em. Every time.

I'm obviously still getting it because DuckTales, but I think this game deserves a full hand-drawn 2D treatment.

I have absolutely no affinity for the original game (I know it's a classic, but I never played it) and I really loved this trailer. The 3D environments with 2D characters is kinda weird though. The 2D art looks so much better, I wish the game was in full 2D. Well, I guess you gotta justify calling it "Remastered" but still...

Anyway, really hoping it is good. I like WayForward.

Why am I hearing about this on Hi Def Digest before Giantbomb!? How long have they been bringing Duck Tales up? Well, I guess, late's better than never.

Also, the YouTube clip tickled more tail feathers than the WayForward trailer did. The enhanced graphics I can deal with, but they better not touch that sound track.

WayForward tends to be solid, usually not amazing but solid. Looking forward to this.

Yea, I'm not entirely sure about the 3D backgrounds either. It's visually confusing with all these foreground and background elements on the screen, and they look like two separate art styles mashed together.

But still, kudos on bringing back the brand. I still can't believe that there's something being made with Duck Tales in the name in 2013.

Awesome, I still have the original for the GameBoy lying around somewhere. Apart from weird 3D, it looks really good.

Since this is a Capcom release I take it that "pony tails and cotton tails" will be day one DLC.

:D

Looking forward to this one.

This has the distinct flavour of being the result of a pitch by some of my favorite podcasting personalities over at lasertimepodcast, at least two of which work at Capcom Unity. Brett Elston and Chris Antista. Would be surprised if it wasn't so.

And yes, Ducktales are rad!

Putting the Ducktales song in that trailer was the best idea ever, I haven't even touched the original game but that song compels me to buy this remastered edition anyways.

God, I loved that cartoon.

Oh this whole thing is so self-aware, it's awesome. This game, the memories, just tell me who I have to give my money!

This is also probably the only time I would like them to do a localized version.

I don't really have a lot of nostalgia for the original game, despite playing it as a kid. The show though, oh man.

I imagine there's a generation of gamers now that probably don't know a damn thing about Duck Tales and don't give a hoot about this... BUT SCREW THEM, DUCK TALES!!!!

I usually hate everything localized but Ducktales's song and dubs were actually done by some actual actors, along some other shows back in the day. Nowadays dubbing is horrible.

Also this song is awesome in every language.

I know that I shouldn't be complaining about this particular piece of good news, any new Duck Tales is good Duck Tales. As such, I have one request that I will say and then shut up because DUCK TALES.

Could it have killed them to make a Steam Version so I don't have to worry about losing this game as soon as I get a new console?

That being said; WOO-OO.
