'DuckTales' cult NES classic gets HD redux for Xbox, PS3, Wii U


One of the most well-loved NES games of all time, "DuckTales," is being resurrected in high definition, Capcom announced today. "DuckTales: Remastered" will be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U this Summer.

Gamers old enough to have had an NES will likely remember the original "DuckTales," a creative and challenging platformer with catchy music and memorable level design. The new version features highly detailed graphics based on the original, as well as new levels and improved boss fights.

The game was announced at the PAX East gaming convention, along with non-HD releases of the classic Dungeons & Dragons series of arcade beat-em-ups. Capcom has been highly successful with its retro re-releases, producing popular and acclaimed versions of "Mega Man," "Blaster Master" and "Bionic Commando" among others in the last few years.

No word on exact release date, but "DuckTales: Remastered" will cost $14.99 or the equivalent amount in Microsoft's MS points.
