DuckTales: Remastered

Capcom has announced that DuckTales: Remastered will be pulled from PC and console digital stores tomorrow.

There’s just one day left to buy Capcom’s excellent remaster of NES classic, DuckTales. The 2013 game – which was remade by platforming maestros, WayForward – will no longer be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii U, and Steam from August 8, 2019.

If you have purchased DuckTales: Remastered in the past, you will still be able to redownload it after this date. Xbox One owners with an interest in the game shouldn’t dawdle either, as it’s backwards compatible. Disc copies of the game will install and play as normal.

Before it’s delisted, DuckTales: Remastered is getting a last minute discount of 75% on all platforms. Here is the exact time of duck death.

  • PlayStation 3 – August 9, 8AM PDT
  • Wii U – August 9, 4:59 PM PDT
  • Xbox 360 (Xbox One) – August 8, 5 PM PDT
  • Steam (PC) – 4:59 PM PDT

Capcom has not given a reason for the game’s removal, but we’d speculate that it’s due to a licence expiry with Disney. It’s another sobering reminder of how digital media is rarely permanent. We hope the same fate doesn’t befall the wonderful Disney Afternoon Collection.
