Capcom has confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered will release across North America and Europe as a digital download today.
Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of the generation’s seminal platform titles.

All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of re-envisioned level backgrounds. Original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life alongside the original soundtrack.
