DuckTales: Remastered Won't Be Getting Any Multiplayer DLC
Posted by Andy Green
Staying true to the original
The original NES version of DuckTales was an entirely single player experience, however as anyone who's played the game will know, there's plenty of room for multiplayer considering all those nephews Scrooge McDuck has.
Now that the classic title is being remade, everyone wants to know if Capcom or WayForward Technologies will be implementing some multiplayer elements into DuckTales: Remastered.
IGN recently caught up with its producer Rey Jimenez at PAX East and asked him whether or not some multiplayer DLC would be on the way. Here's what he had to say:
Absolutely not. Although were adding new stuff... the guys at WayForward are super purist. This is 'DuckTales: Remastered', it’s not 'DuckTales remixed plus all this other stuff'.
The stuff that they’re adding is to give the game definitely more charm and more value and basically play up that factor that people remember DuckTales and it means something to them outside of just a NES game. DuckTales itself as a franchise has a lot of meaning that makes people happy.
Jimenez revealed DuckTales: Remastered would be staying true to the original as much as possible, with 70% of its levels being the same as the NES version, while the rest would be modified slightly to make the experience better:
For those of you that really know the original game, and have a lot of muscle memory of how the original one went, you'll see that most of the game is there - like all the items are in the same place that you remember them - but then you'll come across a few areas that have been a little tweaked, a little tuned, to flow a little better.
There will also be a new tutorial level to show newcomers how to play.
