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:

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.
