Original DuckTales Not Coming To Virtual Console
Posted by Andy Green
The remastered version won't be coming to 3DS either
The gaming world has been buzzing since Capcom announced DuckTales: Remastered and as expected people have been clamoring for information on the upcoming release.
Thankfully, senior vice president Christian Svensson has been on hand to give us a few answers to our neverending questions. Earlier in the day he revealed how WayForward Technologies ended up developing the remake, saying it was actually Disney that made the decision.
Of course, the news of a new version of DuckTales has left people wondering if the original would make it onto the 3DS or Wii U Virtual Consoles. However, Svensson confirmed on the Capcom Unity forums the deal with Disney only involves releasing it in its new form and not as a rerelease on other platforms. It won't find itself in the Remastered version either, due to too many changes being implemented.
Speaking of other platforms, if you were hoping DuckTales: Remastered would make it to the 3DS you'll be disappointed as Capcom won't be releasing it on handheld formats. Svensson also said there are no plans for a demo at this current time.
Many people have also been wondering if the new edition will feature the same voice actors found in the original and Svensson has revealed all of them are making a return for the remastering:
Scrooge's voice actor is now 94 years old but he still came into the studio and did his thing like a pro. The voice work really adds a lot to the package.
