Capcom has announced that WayForward’s Ducktales Remastered game will also be available on PC via via Steam, Origin, Impulse, GamersGate, Green Man Gaming, and other PC services; the game will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and now PC this summer.
The most obvious features that have been remastered are the graphics and the voice acting; Capcom did, however, make a point of using all the same voice actors from the show, including the actor for Scrooge who is now 94 years old.
The Remastered edition looks significantly sharper than the original; WayForward Technologies have also previously remastered other classic games such as Contra 4 and Double Dragon Neon. IGN has released a side-by-side comparison of the original 1989 NES game and the Remastered edition to showcase the vast visual differences.

The new Infernal Mode, which was not included in the original 3DS game, offers an almost impossible level of difficulty, with randomised enemy and item placements.

You can’t miss MyM issue number 6 on sale on the 4th of October! Ooh have we got a scary one for you this time, with the forthcoming ZombiU featured, set to be the most unique and unusual launch title for Nintendo’s new console. Senior scriptwriter Gabrielle Shrager gave us many more words in an interview about the London-based zombie apocalypse sim. Meanwhile our games editor got to try the game and make sure that it pushed all the right buttons – he tried to and we think he succeeded!
Rosario + Vampire has a prime slot with its season two pending release, as has Blue Exorcist also featured with its own part two on the way… Looks like there’ll be a couple more DVDs in your collection to celebrate Halloween 2012! Not to mention awesome coverage of the anticipated Resident Evil 6 – highly likely to spook up your console while your DVD player recovers.
And just because it’s Halloween it doesn’t mean everything in the magazine needs to be about zombies! Oh yes, we’ve reviewed The Raid, Tekken Tag Tournament, Kotoko and a good bunch of manga too, along with a delightfully extended look at the ninja in advance of the forthcoming Ninja Scroll steelbook. But we couldn’t resist the lure for too long, and had to get involved with Ultimate Zombie Feast and Zombie Flesh Eaters – they proved too tasty to pass over!
So, roleplayers, in ZombiU you can be the one who slays the zombies infesting our most beloved Buckingham Palace. But who knows? You might even be the one to win the brand spanking new Wii U in honour of the game’s release!
