DuckTales Remastered plans started in 2010

We first heard about the remastered version of DuckTales in March, but the team at Capcom has been working for years to get Huey, Dewey, Louie, Launchpad and Scrooge McDuck back onto our screens.

Christian Svensson is Corporate officer / Senior Vice President at Capcom, and he likes to share bits and pieces of information with fans. His latest revelation: It took “more than two years (on and off)” to get the deal even started, before developers were able to put pen to paper.

The first conversations I had with folks at Disney about this were had at Dice in 2010 (Feb 2010).

Initial proposals for greenlight started preparation in mid-late 2011 (when it looked like we would be able to reach a deal with Disney). Active development started a bit later after greenlight was achieved.

Previously, Svensson has shared other trivia about the game:

We have ALL the original voice actors from the show. Scrooge’s voice actor [Alan Young] 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.

DuckTales Remastered hits Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U in the Northern Hemisphere’s summer, with rumours that it may also pop up on PC at some point.
