At PAX East, Capcom unveiled DuckTales Remastered, an HD remake of one of the NES' most beloved titles. Because the fan community for the original NES classic is so large and so attached to the title, the positive response to the announcement has been incredible. Christian Svensson of Capcom took to the Capcom-Unity forums to answer questions about the title.
Firstly, Svensson revealed that DuckTales Remastered happened because of the fans. The demand was strong and so they pursued the project. He also says that while DuckTales 2 or remakes of other Disney-lisenced Capcom games may be possible in the future if DuckTales Remastered is a commercial success, but we shouldn't "put the cart before the horse." The full quote can be found after the jump.
Svensson has also made it clear that though DuckTales Remastered is coming to Wii U eShop, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade, the title will not make its way to the Nintendo 3DS or PS Vita "this time around." There is no mention of the future, so if the game sells well at first, Capcom may reconsider its stance.
All in all, it's wonderful to see that Capcom is starting a greater dedication to its fans, and I only imagine it will improve—at least for the near future. Are you going to be picking up DuckTales Remastered?
