Capcom has announced DuckTales Remastered, an HD remake of the 1989 NES platformer heading to Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and the Wii U eShop this summer.

Developed by WayForward Technologies, DuckTales Remastered follows Scrooge McDuck through a series of side-scrolling environments and features "luscious hand-drawn" sprites set aback 3D backgrounds.

As well as improved visuals, the HD update includes "new controls, additional areas [and] a Duckburg museum to track your progress", and features remastered versions of the original game's 8-bit music tracks. You can even swim in Scrooge's money bin.

The original NES release is fondly remembered by fans for its excellent platforming and soundtrack which, judging by the trailer, Capcom hasn't forgotten.

Give it a watch. I guarantee you'll be singing along by the time it comes to an end.

Here's another one. YouTube Video

Amusing theme tunes back in the 90s. This, Chip and Dale's, Captain Planet, et cetera. Ahhh good old days.

God I miss my childhood - Ducktales was one of my childhood cartoons. Anyways World of Illusion... I recall a Mickey game with him jumping on bouncy leaves... was that the same one I wonder.

I have no idea. I doubt it would have the same charm though. World of Illusion looked gorgeous enough even back then.

Wasn't Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion on 3DS supposed be a continuation or at least heavily based off that game/ series (mickey illusions games)?

Then again power of illusion wasn't a good game, so a remastering would be better.

For some reason I dont think i actually played Duck Tales, Quackshot came immediately to mind. but this looks pretty awesome :)

Now all we need is a re-imagining of Mickey & Donald's World of Illusion. Now THAT would be awesome.

In my books they're the guys who made the Shantae games, the guys who made mighty series and the guys who made contra 4, so really I only know them for their good handheld game heritage. They also did the "boy and his blob" remake which was good.

But I did hear Double dragon Neon was somewhere between, so bad it's good and so bad it's awful, so I guess they have a checkered history on console.

Well I'm still waiting for the co-op patch for Double Dragon Neon they promised everyone, so in my books they are Gearbox standard.

Knew the song off by heart! Well, about 78%, the rest I'd got wrong in that way you do as a kid and just make up sounds that fit.

Ok, a remastering of an 8-bit game based off of a TV show from the late 80's before my time, hmm I'm not sure about this, who's making it...?

WayForward Tech!?! Ok, there is no doubt they'll do a great job!
