Capcom confirms that DuckTales Remastered will receive a PC version
Yesterday GameSpot reported that the upcoming DuckTales Remastered, which was previously expected to be a console exclusive title, will indeed be released on PC via Steam, Origin, Impluse, and other services.The reason that Capcom made the announcement is simple enough. According to the representative that made the announcement, PC was the most requested platform for the upcoming game.
PC users can expect the launch to be “Within or around the same window” as the console versions. In addition, the game will cost the same amount as the console versions, namely $15.
For those that aren’t sure, DuckTales Remastered is a remake of the classic NES game. It has been confirmed that around 70% of the levels will be the same as the original version, and yes, this includes hidden secrets.
Perhaps the most exciting thing about the upcoming remake (at least for any child of the late 80s and 90s) is that many of the original voice actors are making a return for the game. This means that iconic characters like Scrooge McDuck will indeed be voiced by the original people who brought them to life in the series. Unfortunately, Capcom couldn’t find all of the original actors, so for those that are missing, they will be using Disney’s official, modern equivalents.
One notable change is the money. In the original version, it was simply used to keep score and for bragging rights. In this remake, it will be used to unlock items and fill Scrooge’s safe.
