DuckTales: Remastered being removed from digital storefronts from 8 August

August 7, 2019

Capcom has announced that DuckTales: Remastered will be leaving digital storefronts from 8 August.

DuckTales: Remastered was released in 2013 and is a platformer based on the popular Disney cartoon DuckTales. The game sees players take control of Scrooge McDuck as he travels the world in search of five treasures to further increase his fortune. Scrooge McDuck can use his cane to strike at enemies and objects or as a makeshift pogo stick to jump over hazards. Character sprites are beautifully hand-drawn while levels feature 3D modeled environments.

DuckTales: Remastered is currently available on Steam, Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii U and Xbox One (via backwards compatibility). Many of the digital stores currently have the game on sale, which makes it very tempting to grab if you haven’t already done so. Microsoft have the Xbox 360 version for AU$3.73. Steam has the PC version going for AU$5.73.

Once the game has been removed from digital stores, disc versions will still be able to be played and if you own the title digitally you will also still be able to re-download it to your system.

A reason for the removal has not been provided, though it’s likely Capcom no longer have the DuckTales videogame license, which will presumably revert back to Disney.
