In a turn of events that nobody saw coming, Capcom has announced that DuckTales: Remastered is back on digital storefronts after being delisted in August 2019.

The game was originally pulled from all available platforms last year, with Capcom reassuring players that everyone who already owned the game would be able to keep playing it. However, Capcom never provided a reason for DuckTales: Remastered being made to fly the coop.

Regardless, DuckTales: Remastered is now back and ready for purchase on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One (thanks to the Backward Compatibility program), Wii U, and Steam.

As per Capcom’s official blog post:

With DuckTales: Remastered back on digital storefronts, join Scrooge McDuck on out-of-this-world adventures with his nephews and niece in search of mystery, adventure, and treasure.

If you missed this gem the first time around, now’s the perfect time to dive in. Calling back to the golden age of 8-bit gaming and Saturday morning cartoons, DuckTales: Remastered features hand-drawn animated sprites that bring each character to life in a vibrant world. Duckburg and the many exotic locales you’ll visit have never looked better thanks to hand-painted backgrounds from the original cartoon. The original Disney Character Voice talent reprise their roles from the cartoon with pitch-perfect performances… you’ll swear you’ve stepped into an episode of the classic DuckTales cartoon!

Keeping with the gameplay of the 8-bit classic, you can platform and pogo-jump your way through fantastic locales while enjoying modern touches and gameplay improvements as Scrooge and family search for the five Legendary Treasures. When you’re in between adventures, make sure to take a swan – er, duck – dive into Scrooge’s famous money bin as his wealth grows with each successful escapade!
