Just about everyone who grew up with an NES–that magical console that built the foundations for an entire generation of gamers–remembers the incredible fun that comprised Capcom’s Ducktales. The game itself has been venerated for decades and has been universally hailed as one of the greatest platformers of not only the 8-bit era, ranking up with the greatest of the NES world.
Now Capcom is bringing us back to those nostalgic days with a remastered HD port of the legendary game, which is releasing quite soon across a multitude of platforms via digital download. The game is set to re-vitalize an age-old classic while bringing it into the current age of gaming, allowing players to re-discover the splendor of their youth.
To celebrate the impending release of Ducktales: Remastered, Capcom has sent out limited edition collector’s boxes that contain a golden NES cartridge of the renown classic, bundled in a commerative lunchbox that’s emblazoned with that grumpy, greedy avian hero Scrooge McDuck.
While the public would absolutely love this sort of thing, it appears that Capcom is only sending these limited edition boxes out to certain select outlets. It would be interesting to see if Capcom will introduce the set onto the market for the global public, as the demand is there, yet their limited nature only add more value and prestige to the set.
Ducktales: Remastered is slated to release next week in North American on Tuesday, August 13th via digital download on the PlayStation Network, Nintendo eShop, and Steam. The XBLA version will come next month on September 11th, and all versions will cost $14.99.
Additionally, Capcom will release a retail release for PS3 for $19.99.
