DuckTales Remastered was unveiled at PAX East and is being developed by WayForward Technologies. Many fans are excited for the re-make of the game, which will include an expanded plot since the original game didn’t have much of one at all.

WayForward Technologies have gone to great lengths to explain the many details of the game, including why Scrooge’s nephews have been kidnapped in the first place. Capcom producer Rey Jimenez stated in an interview with Siliconera:

“In the original NES version, you go in the UFO to find the remote control to open the area to get to the boss. You don’t really know why. The game doesn’t explain it well. In the NES version, you fight a big rat and it didn’t explain why you’re fighting a rat on the moon. That’s explained in here because there are rats they’re experimenting on and you let them loose and that becomes the rat down there. Also, how does Scrooge McDuck breathes on the moon? We explain that as well.”

The game will be headed to the Wii U eShop later this summer.

    Why not give everyone they deserve. by remaking the soundtrack for the Moon Stage.

  • Jerry Garcia

    Anyone else listening to Chumbawumba?

    • Dominic Coradazzi

      Nope, Moon theme

  • Denvy

    Did people really wonder why Scrooge could breath on the moon? Seriously? You’re a pogo jumping duck collecting jewels and treasures. If you accept that as a possibility, breathing on the moon certainly doesn’t lend itself to criticism as unrealistic.

      When I saw that I immediately yelled, “UNREALISTIC!” and forced the game down my shredder.

      Idk…. I guess it sounds legit.

    • Rick van der Linde

      Not to mention it’s a talking duck.

  • Saleh Sbeiti

  • brian murphy

    Little Nemo remake would be nice lol

  • Ducked

    Hopefully this is the next step for a entire new Duck Tales game.

    I think its kind of silly to go so far as to explain why scrooge can breathe on the moon.

    No one questions in Mario galaxy about atmospheres, and how Mario breathes underwater in the old games.

    They should just let that one go, but at the same time its sort of funny as hell!

    Maybe that’s what they were going for. Can anyone say… ‘over the top’? 😛
