DuckTales Remastered was announced at PAX East back in March, developed by the up-and-coming superstar development team at WayForward Technologies. Based on the classic NES hit DuckTales, which was inspired by the hit cartoon of the same name, DuckTales Remastered leaps to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC later this year, and after playing the demo shown at E3, I can say with certainty that DuckTales Remastered is going to be spectacular.
Starting in "The Amazon," I saw the brilliance of DuckTales Remastered shining brightly within the first thirty seconds of my experience. Rather than simply placing Scrooge McDuck, the game's protagonist, at the beginning of levels, DuckTales Remastered shows Launchpad McQuack dropping Scrooge off in various levels and explaining how it relates to his quest, which does well to make the game a little more cohesive. Did I mention that several cast members of the show reprise their roles for the game's voices? Most notably, Alan Young returns as Scrooge McDuck, which really adds an authentic DuckTales flair to the reimagined title.
