DuckTales Remastered

Capcom removed DuckTales Remastered from the Wii U eShop last August. In a surprising move, it has returned roughly a half year later. In a blog post, Capcom announced that DuckTales Remastered is back, though the company didn’t state explicitly why it was taken down originally. 

Unfortunately, there’s still no word on a Switch release. You’ll need to go with Wii U or another platform if you’re interested in giving the game a shot.


Capcom is pulling DuckTales Remastered from all digital storefronts, including Wii U. The title will no longer be available to purchase from the eShop as of August 9 at 4:59 PM PT / 7:59 PM ET. You can save 75 percent on the original price until its removal.

If you have the physical version, today’s news won’t affect you in any way. Also, if you previously purchased the digital version, you’ll be able to continue playing.


Capcom’s latest financial results are in, and they bring encouraging news for a quartet of Nintendo-related titles.

Monster Hunter 4 saw “overwhelming popularity,” according to the company. The game ended up “creating a huge buzz even comparable to a sort of social phenomenon”.

Capcom also says that Resident Evil: Revelations HD and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies also reached their projected sales.

DuckTales Remastered sold quite well, too. According to Capcom, the remake experienced a “better-than-expected performance”.


A pair of Capcom games are currently on sale on the Wii U eShop. DuckTales Remastered and Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara can both be purchased for $7.49 each. These prices are valid until January 9.

Capcom and WayForward have prepared a new update for DuckTales Remastered. It addresses multiple crashes and adds a new “Quick Cinema” mode.

Quick Cinema allows players to skip through most cut-scenes when activated. The option appears after completing the game at least once.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


DuckTales Remastered is just a few days away from hitting store shelves as a physical product. At Target, the Wii U version will come with an exclusive Scrooge McDuck Disney pin.

Here’s what it looks like:
