The prize for most random and completely unexpected remake goes to… Capcom! The classic Nintendo platformer, Duck Tales, is getting a shiny HD makeover and is scheduled to hit PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U this summer for $14.99.
The characters will remain hand drawn while the background and platforms will be upgraded to vectors to allow for all sorts of snazzy effects and the original music will be remastered. New elements include a tutorial and a museum, “We’re literally pouring our heart and soul into this title, it’s going to play just like you remember,” said Capcom’s Rey Jimenez.
And now a very important warning: Do not watch the trailer unless you want to be humming the theme tune for the rest of the day, the music – taken from the original Duck Tales cartoon – is one of the most infectious tunes ever composed.
Now if only we can get them to make Aladdin HD as well…
