DuckTales is an action platformer video game developed by Capcom and based on the Disney animated TV series of the same name. It was first released in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989 and was later ported to the Game Boy in 1990. The story involves Scrooge McDuck traveling across the globe collecting treasure and outwitting his rival Flintheart Glomgold to become the world's richest duck.
A high-definition remake of DuckTales, titled DuckTales: Remastered, was developed by WayForward Technologies and released in 2013 on multiple gaming platforms, including PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
DuckTales: Remastered features a 2.5D presentation, with 2D hand-drawn character sprites and 3D modeled levels. Backgrounds and layouts were created by Disney Television artists Mike Peraza and Rick Evans. The game features full voice acting for the characters, including the surviving members of the original animated series cast, such as Alan Young as Scrooge.
The original game's levels are featured, but expanded with new areas and new boss patterns. The game features new story elements which explain some of the motives and reasoning behind each level, such as how Scrooge is able to breathe on the Moon. The game also features almost identical gameplay of the original, with a few gameplay tweaks, such as a map screen and an easier pogo jump, which can be toggled on and off. DuckTales: Remastered features a new tutorial level, set in Scrooge's money vault, and a new level leading up to the final boss. Money gathered in levels can now be used to unlock various gallery items such as concept art and pieces of music.
