FTG Writes: Rewriting History
Over the last few years, there has been a true revival of the 8-bit era. From various re-releases of classic games like Mega Man, The Legend of Zelda, and even more cult hits like Kid Icarus, to purposefully derivative and inspired fan-service games like Retro City Rampage and Scott Pilgrim, interest in old-style gameplay is remarkably high. One of the most prolific titles from that old period was the Capcom classic DuckTales. Back in those days, when a developer had a pre-existing license in their hands, publishers and developers would usually get their top guys on the project – which is why they were so much better than their modern counterparts. However, for as good as DuckTales was, nobody would have ever thought it was due for a remake any time soon. With no other DuckTales property in circulation, love for the game is what drove DuckTales Remastered into existence.
