DuckTales Remastered release dates announced

We’ve been tossing out the hyper-vague “Summer 2013” for DuckTales: Remastered’s release window since the game was announced back at PAX East, but today, we’re happy to finally confirm some solid release dates for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. Here goes:

• August 13th – DuckTales Remastered launches on PlayStation Network, Steam, and the Wii U eShop
• September 11th – DuckTales: Remastered launches on Xbox Live

If that weren’t enough, there will also be a special boxed edition of DuckTales: Remastered for PlayStation 3 available at US retailers on August 20th, which will include a download code and an exclusive DuckTales Disney collector’s pin. The physical version will go for $19.99, while the digital version remains $14.99 on all platforms. Wait, there’s more!

Woo-Hoo! Such news clearly calls for a celebration. So bless our bagpipes, we’re also the unveiling the first part of a behind-the-scenes Duckumentary series, which lovingly showcases how WayForward distilled DuckTales’ 75+ year legacy in comics, cartoons and video games into DuckTales: Remastered. Today’s Duckumentary focuses on the process behind taking the original backgrounds and level designs from the NES game, and enhancing through storytelling, voice acting, and hand-drawn art for an authentic Disney look and feel.
