For those who have been gaming for a while, there are two—of many—general truisms regarding Capcom’s library: DuckTales was and is a fantastic platformer, and there is no reason why the Dungeons & Dragons collection shouldn’t be released stateside. Capcom has ticked several boxes in one announcement with the news that they will be releasing DuckTales Remastered and both Dungeons & Dragons side-scrolling brawlers, Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, online this summer.
DuckTales Remastered, in development at WayForward, will feature re-created visuals using hard-drawn and animated sprites, as well as levels based on the original’s. Some of the original voice actors from the TV series will also be reprising their roles in-game. A new tutorial level and leaderboard support is also being added. Gamers can check for DuckTales Remastered this summer for 360, PC, PS3, and Wii U.
Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and its sequel Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara will be released as an HD set from developer Iron Galaxy. Additions include drop-in/drop-out online play, House Rules mode for greater customization, Character Visualizer player tracker for balancing parties, leaderboard support, Challenge system for obtaining coins to spend in an extras vault, and GamePad support for Wii U owners. Currently, the only way to enjoy the four-player brawlers on a home console is to import the Sega Saturn version for over $100. That will change this June when Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara launches for $14.99/1200 MS Points for 360, PC, PS3, and Wii U.
