It’s a sad day for DuckTales fans everywhere – DuckTales: Remastered is set to be pulled from digital storefronts starting on the 8th of August 2019.
The announcement was made on the Capcom site, with reassurances that people who have previously purchased the game will still be able to access and play it after its removal.
If you want to pick up DuckTales: Remastered before it flies the coop forever, it’ll still be available on the following platforms until the listed dates and times:
- Wii U – August 9, 4:59pm PDT
- PlayStation 3 – August 9, 8am PDT
- Xbox 360, Xbox One (via Backwards Compatibility) – August 8th, 5pm PDT
- Steam (PC) – August 8th, 4:59pm PDT
Capcom would like to add that the times are estimates, so don’t wait until the last minute to decide whether you want to buy it or not.
The good news is that most platforms are currently giving DuckTales: Remastered a ‘farewell price drop’ with the game being up to 75% off on most digital storefronts. You can pick it up on Steam here.
As with most digital delistings, people who own a physical copy of DuckTales: Remastered have nothing to fear aside from breaking or losing their disc. Physical versions of the game will continue on like nothing happened.
Capcom didn’t comment on why the game was being pulled but, as per usual, we can assume it’s most likely some tricky business to do with licenses. We’ll update if we find out why DuckTales: Remastered has left us too soon.
