Ducktales Remastered
« on: March 26, 2013, 06:20:50 PM »
I'm a fan of a lot of classic games and one of my Capcom favorites is Ducktales for the NES. I was surprised to find out they are doing a remaster for the Wii Channel, Xbox Arcade and PS Network:

Looks pretty good, I'm crossing my fingers for a decent remake. They are including all the old levels along with new ones and additional bosses. Also they got many of the actors and actresses still alive from the cartoon show like Alan Young who is coming back to voice act Scrooge (Young is 91 years old now!).

The original is one of my favorite games of that era. Such fond memories... and such a great wellspring of nostalgia to tap into for WayForward. That being said, their games seem to be hit or miss these days. The level design in the video looks pretty simple and boring, so hopefully it's just a result of this being an early version of the game.

Saw that a few days ago when it was announced and was happily surprised. Still, I'm wary of how they'll do it. Maybe I'm just being an old far, but for some reason the new graphics just don't do it for me as much as the old ones did, and the levels/gameplay so far don't seem to go beyond the minimum required. We'll see.

I prefer the older design to this one. Loved the original game and it's soundtrack (Lunar stage was my fav).
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Here's hoping for a Rescue Rangers remake to follow. Keeping my eye on this for sure.
"If I could strike one blow to spite their force, though I might bear one hundred more, I would wear the welts like rubies, and the shackles for a crown. And if I had one hundred hearts I would throw them all before their bullets before I'd sell a single one to wield their power. So lest we fall out of love with life, let us give all we have to give - for only a fool would cling to this world."

Hahaha, that could be fun actually. Still, those seem to be banking a little too much on nostalgia for my taste.

Very glad to see that. I wish Sega could do the same with Castle of Illusion and World of Illusion...

Have you tried the 3DS version of Epic Mickey? It tried to catch that same vibe (even the title, Power of Illusion, is a reference). Reviews were mixed though.

Yep, I've tried the demo. I thought that it was nice, they even reused the bouncing sound that Mickey does when he bounce on an enemy in Castle of Illusion.  :iva:
Certainly a future purchase... but not at full price.

The demo was abysmally bad, though.
