The DuckTales reboot is still two years away, but Disney is offering just about anyone with a phone to dive into one of Uncle Scrooge’s most famous adventures today.
Disney announced that DuckTales: Remastered, a remake of the 1989 Nintendo game, is coming to mobile devices today.
The remastered version brings to life the original game’s five locales—Himalayas, Amazon, Transylvania, African mines and Moon—with updated visuals and voice work from the original cartoon’s cast. The game sees Scrooge attempts to recove the Five Legendary Treasures and rescue his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie whenever they get into trouble.
DuckTales: Remastered first debuted in 2013 and eventually came to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Windows PC. The game is available today on the Apple App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone and Windows Store. The mobile version for iOS, Android, and Windows devices costs $9.99.
The game retains some of its difficulty from the original NES days, but is still a fun opportunity to jump back into the nostalgia the series now evokes while waiting for the rebooted cartoon series. At the very least, it will have you humming that theme song for at least a few more weeks.
