Weirdness: If You Always Wanted a Gold DuckTales NES Cartridge, Now's Your Chance
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Sing or draw to win, it's up to you
DuckTales: Remastered is now gracing the Wii U eShop, giving the NES classic a HD makeover and the odd extra feature. Capcom isn't quite finished promoting the multi-platform release — mainly due to the fact it's yet to arrive on the Xbox 360 — so has launched a rather intriguing contest for eager collectors. Every weekday up until 11th September — the 360 release date — Capcom Unity will be giving away at least one tin lunchbox per day. It contains "shredded one dollar bills" — probably not actual money! — some promotional guff and, most intriguingly, a functional gold NES cartridge of the original DuckTales.
These packages were originally given out to some members of the press, and with just 150 produced the remainder are now there to be won. There are two ways to go about it, with the first being to record yourself singing the DuckTales theme tune, which you can do at this official page. Below is some footage of others doing so in public, and having a jolly time while they're at it.
Alternatively you can produce some drawings and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org with "DuckTales Art" as the subject line, with the following rules:
Don’t wanna sing? That’s cool, maybe you’re a more visual person. We want you to
A) Insert the DuckTales gang into classic Capcom box art, and/or…
B) Duckify you a Capcom character or characters! Make Ryu, Mega Man, Arthur, etc., look like they’d fit in perfectly on the streets of Duckburg.
So there you have it, with at least one of these kits being given away every weekday until 11th September there are plenty of opportunities, as long as you're in North America or Europe. Check out the kit and gold cartridge in the video below; will you be entering the contest?
