DuckTales Remastered is a thing that exists (opens in new tab) , and now it's a thing with a whole load of gameplay footage to pore over, so we can decide whether it lives up to the well-regarded NES original.

In other news, no one appears to be working on a Chip 'n' Dale (opens in new tab) remake, so there's obviously no justice in the universe.

I don't know about you, but I much prefer the original pixel art.

Here's a speedrun of the NES game for comparison:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
