Queue one of my favorite childhood cartoon theme songs of all time! Capcom has announced in an official press release that DuckTales Remastered is coming to PlayStation 3 via PSN on August 13th. As a special treat, it’s also coming to retail stores in a special retail box with collectible pin.

The digital only title will be downloadable from the PlayStation Network Store on August 13th for $14.99, a small price to pay for an epic piece of iconic software originally released on cartridge for the Nintendo Entertainment System. DuckTales Remastered has been completely redone by WayForward with all new 3D visuals while maintaining the original 2D gameplay.

The retail version is exclusive to PS3 and will be presented in a fun retail box (no images provided) containing a PSN voucher code and an exclusive Disney DuckTales collector’s pin. Expect to see this exclusive PS3 retail packaging in stores on August 20th for $19.99.

I got to play the game while at E3 this past June and I don’t think I blinked for a 20 minutes. The gameplay felt very modern and attainable while still possessing that classic charm that you don’t see in newer games. As a kid, I grew up watching DuckTales and look forward to this game a bunch. Let us know in the comments below how DuckTales shaped your childhood.

    Payday 2 AND duck tales life gone

    ouch, they should of released it this month if they could. Considering that no games come out in July, they could probably sell even more on day one. :

      Devs don’t usually leap to the challenge of cramming a half baked game into consumers hands. Overtime is not all that fun and puts the body and the mind through it’s paces. The most I ever worked was three consecutive overnighters at Sony while testing SOCOM 2. That’s three back to back 20 hr shifts, with only 3.5 hrs between to sleep. I passed out with a controller in my hand on the third day. One or two guys work a 40-40-40. Figure that one out.

      that is illegal, a minimum of 8 hrs is mandated by federal law between shifts with no more than 6 days worked consecutive.
      your story smells Kosmo

      Very little is illegal if you’re salaried – that’s why corporates love wrangling people into salary contracts.

      Labor laws are different in each state. There are loop holes to labor laws too. I clearly remember the seventh consecutive day worked was entirely double time back then. Though after this period, the higher ups made changes to our overtime policies quick style, saying nothing short of all projects will no longer have overtime without approval from management. Maybe this is why our department was shut down. O_o

      company policy does not trump federal labour laws

    • KosmoCrisis

      California does not have a restriction on how many hours can be worked per day. In fact, you can be fired if you don’t agree to work within a 72 hr scheduled week. We were allowed to work 8 reg, 4 OT, and 4 DT each day. After 40 reg it’s OT. The 7th consecutive day worked in the same work week is OT up to 8 hrs, then it’s all DT.
