DuckTales: Remastered Hits PSN, eShop, And PC This August, XBLA Follows In September

Capcom announced today that DuckTales: Remastered, WayForward’s HD remake of the classic NES platformer DuckTales, will have a staggered North American release across all major platforms starting this August.

DuckTales: Remastered is currently scheduled to launch first on PSN, the Nintendo Wii U eShop, and PC (via Steam) on August 13th, with the XBLA version pushed back to a September 11th release. In addition to the pure digital distribution launch schedule, the game will also be released in a boxed version for the PlayStation 3 on August 20th. The PS3 retail version comes with a download code for the game (Capcom does not appear to be including a physical game disc in the box) and an “exclusive DuckTales Disney collector’s pin”.

The digital version of the HD remake will cost $14.99, while the PS3 boxed retail version runs $19.99. Since the boxed version does not include a game disc, the only difference between the two appears to be the actual box and the collector’s pin. Whether that is worth the extra $5 or not hinges on your personal nostalgia for the original title… So, it looks like I’ll be waiting until August 20th to download a copy.

Capcom has also released the first “Duckumentary” video for DuckTales: Remastered today, giving fans a look behind the scenes at WayForward Technologies. This first offering covers how the studio went about remaking the original 8-bit levels, producing new concept art, and character designs for the game.

Check out the first DuckTales: Remastered Duckmentary embedded below, and look for more videos to be released every other week leading up to the game’s launch on August 13th.
