DuckTales: Remastered might not make sense to younger gamers who missed the show’s craze. VG247′s Dave Cook explores the NES original and speaks with Capcom about the remake.
being made because companies realise they can't make anything near as good as they use to? when this game sells i'm sure other companies willfollow in ther footsteps. much cheaper to remaster games then to build from ground up. and those ground up games are rarely better then the remasters.
"when this game sells" So what is Ducktails: Remastered doing that dozens of other re-releases from the last 7 years haven't?
releasing and remastering a snes game is diffeent then a remaster of a ps2 game. quality of 16bit era was much better and more difficult games in my opinion. rleasing a virtual console release isn't the same as this either. this remaster looks as if it's a totally new title instead of just a copy and paste remake.
Ducktales was NES, not SNES
Be careful linking all of those together. This isn't a re-release, it's a full remake with additional content. It seems to have been done with a lot of respect for the original game. To me, this is a lot like Bionic Commando: Rearmed (no, not that "My arm is my wife" game, the other one), which kept all the good stuff of the original and made a new game with it. And that game was awesome. Let's hope this one's done that well. Contrast that with a bad remake, like Turtles In Time Re-Shelled (or whatever it was called). It was an empty polygonization of a perfectly great sprite game. Yes, this wasn't the original game, but it was just put in 3D, nothing added, charm removed, it seemed like... well... an empty shell. The polygon remake of Cave Story for the 3DS was the same way - retail-priced, 3D graphics, but not as good. The re-release of Cave Story in pixels with just a little 3D was way, way better for the 3DS later on. Contrast that with an actual "re-release," like the Virtual Console releases or the recent Capcom re-release of the two D&D arcade games. Those are emulations/reproductions of the original game. Not much is added to the game itself, although online play might be enabled instead of couch/arcade machine multiplayer.
Amen. Game companies turn to nostalgia titles when their expensive new games aren't selling. Examples: HD remakes, downloadable Classics, Wii in general
The dozens of others may be well & good but, this is Ducktales! Wooo hooo. Just watch the videos. I have to say Castle of Illusion looks great too.
I can't believe people are actually excited for this game, but hey, to each their own. I'm happy for the people that are looking forward to it, but I'll be shocked if it sells enough to make a profit.
a profit? how much do you think it costs to remaster a game like this? or even remake it from the ground up! Not much by today's standards. Can't wait day 1 buyerl
I have no idea, but I just can't see this game being a big seller.
I didn't get to play the original but hey i'm excited for it as long as it's priced right ;)
The original DuckTales was fantastic. In my top 20 must play NES titles.
Because the game was amazing. It had great level design and gameplay. Plus who doesn't love Ducktales? I understand if you didn't play it because you weren't deeply involved in gaming or your to young to know classic gaming but it is 100% worth the remake and buy. Same with MM castle of illusion. Now I just hope they do Goof Troop. Watched and played all those as a kid and now my daughter loves Ducktales and goof troop and all those old cartoons from the late 80's and early 90's (and I love rewatching them too and remembering the good days.)
and darkwing duck & def a chip & dale
the thing is, Ducktales was famous and loved back then therefore a game was automatically justified if you know what I mean. nonetheless, it warms my heart to see such games seeing the day of light one more time.
Kid gamers gotta love them! Wouldnt know pacman if he slapped them in the face. First this, then cool spot please oh and Aladdin.
add lion king to that list. and goldenaxe
This game was one of my favorites on the nes. Well worth a play through imo
