DuckTales: Remastered Coming to Retail on Wii U in North America

Woo-oo!

DuckTales: Remastered is exactly what the title suggests, it's a re-worked modern version of the classic — and challenging — NES game. For fans of the original that fancied a shiny new run-through it's been largely well-received, but its old-school sensibilities also saw it cop some criticism; it's certainly down to taste.

Up to now it's been a download release on the eShop, of course, but it's been confirmed by Capcom that it'll arrive as a budget-priced retail disc on the Wii U in North America — previously a physical version was only confirmed for the PS3. It'll arrive in the region on 12th November and cost $19.99, which is $5 more expensive than the download version; if you want a box, you pay the price. There's been no equivalent announcement for Europe, but we'll keep our eyes peeled.

For our part, we were full of praise for this Capcom / WayForward release in our DuckTales: Remastered review. If you haven't downloaded it already, are you planning to save up some treasure to grab the disc version? Let us know in the comments below.
