Disney classic remake kick: DuckTales and Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion coming to PS3 and Xbox 360

April 18, 2013

Disney classic remake kick: DuckTales and Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion coming to PS3 and Xbox 360With the closure of LucasArts, it appears that the license floodgates have been opened by Disney with two publishers announcing remakes of classic video games. Capcom announced that it is working on a full remake of DuckTales which originally came out on the NES.

I have fond memories of sinking countless hours into DuckTales, as well as Scrooge McDuck’s funny jumping mechanic on the NES. Working with Capcom, WayForward Technologies will be developing a complete remake (not a remaster) of the classic title. The new version of the game has been hand drawn to give it that authentic feel and will release over PSN, Wii U and Xbox Live.

Sega is also working on a classic Disney title with a remake of Castle of Illusions. The remake will be handled by Sega Studios Australia, and will be developed in HD 3D glory. Castle of Illusions will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC through Steam.

    Caste of illusions for Genesis was one of the best games on the system. Hopefully they do a remake of Aladdin too.

  2. CarlB:

    Castle of Illusion was a favorite of mine as well… would love to see a Disney Collection with trophies a la Genesis Collection.

    Kids today, and their Playboxes and Weeze.

    I played Ducktales, though I have fonder memories of other NES games.

    Dragon Warrior got me into RPG’s, which was followed by Final Fantasy.

    The Mario Bros games were always good but you can only play 3 so many times before you see everything.

    Friday the 13th…. I can’t tell you how long it took me to finally kill Jason… only to have it restart and do it all over again.

    I had like 30+ NES games, and Duck Tales is easy in my top 5. It was one of the few NES games I played all the way though on a regular basis.
