DuckTales Remastered Announced At PAX photo

DuckTales Woo-oo! PAX East is currently underway and Capcom had a bit of a surprise for everyone at their panel. Firstly, they announced that they are working on a new installment of the Mega Man franchise and, secondly, that they would be releasing an HD remastered version of DuckTales for the NES.

The remaster of this classic gem will be put in the more than capable hands of WayForward Technologies, who are the ones responsible for games like Contra 4 and Double Dragon Neon. The game will be available in Summer 2013 for Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and the Wii U Eshop ; so you shouldn’t need to worry about not being able to get it.

It’s great to see such a great game get the remaster treatment and the trailer – which you can see below – brings me a warm feeling of nostalgia. Now we can only hope that Darkwing Duck gets the same kind of attention. Come on, Capcom. Make us all happy!
