New DuckTales revealed

Capcom developing new side-scrolling game inspired by NES classic for Xbox Live, PSN, and Wii U; will launch this summer.

BOSTON--Today during Capcom's "World of Capcom" panel at PAX East, the publisher announced a new DuckTales title. Due out this summer on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and eShop for Wii U, the game is in development at WayForward Technologies (BloodRayne: Betrayal).

According to Capcom, the new DuckTales title will feature authentic character voice talent from the television show. Its level backgrounds will also be based on scenes from the show.

Capcom explained that all art for the game is hand-drawn and that the team at WayForward used the original NES DuckTales title as a blueprint for the new version.

Gamers worried about the game deviating from Disney's original vision can breathe a sigh of relief. Capcom said it is working very closely with Disney to "make sure everything feels right." The game will play "just like you remember," the company explained.

The game's debut trailer is embedded below.

Also, on the off chance anyone from capcom happens across the comments section: This is the way forward with the Megaman franchise. No shooters. No gritty, #edgy remakes. Simple, pretty, modern platformers with a strong attention to game mechanics. Remember, it doesn't need to be an homage to the past, it needs to BUILD on the past. Do not approach it as a retro project.

WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT -pants- Okay...I think... I THink I've WANT WANT WANT....damn. ... Alright. I've got control of myself now.

What I meant to say, if you'll pardon my breach of etiquette, is that I would thoroughly enjoy a brisk romp through the fertile pastures of my youth's imagination via the merrits of the Ducktales franchise, reborn.

One side of my gut is telling me to never get another Capcom product after the whole Megaman Legends screwjob. And the other is telling me to forgive them after this comes out.

DuckTales is one of the greatest NES games of all time.  So this is cool news.

Yay now I get a refresh of a 25+ year old game, most likely, complete with obnoxious DLC just like the 80's...oh wait.

Didn't a character from Duck Tales won the reader's choice in one of Gamespot's contest?  :-)

Launchpad McQuack! The Beagle Boys! Flintheart Glomgold! Hope there all in there. : )

I hope they make the stages longer this time. It was a lot of fun to play as a kid (still have my NES cartridge), but it was a pretty short game.

Perfect time to link Peter McDuck Griffin's taking a dive. Moments like this remind me of how much I used to respect Capcom. Before all the DLC, the murder of the survival horror genre, the unwanted/unneeded changes to Dante  and hidden stuff you have to pay to unlock. I still respect you Capcom, you just make it really difficult.

SWEET!  They should also remaster Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, and make it a 2-Pack!!!

Capcom better not mess up the music to the Moon level.  Best video game music theme ever.

Great game, played it when I was a kid. Too bad it's not coming to the PC. I love those nostalgia remakes.

It would be awesome if I could play this on the PSVITA but I doubt they will make it accessible like that but this seems to be my greatest availability of play time is on the go.

@Imperiusmax it'll be good. I think a 7.5-8.0 score.

@Icepick_Trotter 
The entire soundtrack is being remixed!
Have faith, WayForward's sound guy Jake Kaufman is stupendous, it'll have a very good remixed soundtrack.

I believe the original game is intact, but they are adding some new areas.

@erix43 Lol. In Blade Runner, they test to see if you are a replicant by asking you to sing the Ducktails theme song.

@electro57 
Capcom is just publishing it.
It's being developed by WayForward, and their sound guy is fantastic, It'll be good.

@electro57 I really hope that if they choose to do remix versions of the music, that they also have an option to play the original tunes.

@Andrew Billings 
Yep, being remixed.

@setuwa because one of the greatest two-hour blocks of cartoons contained Rescue Rangers, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck and Tail Spin.  Racing home from school to watch them and eat fruity pebbles was one of my favorite things to do....until I learned how to play with myself.

@Bigbudd0045 @electro57 
It is being remixed. I'm assuming it'll be like once you beat the game you can play the original music type of thing
