Head to the African Mines with DuckTales Remastered

DuckTales Remastered is nearly here, and Capcom has done a good job so far of showing off the game's redone HD visuals. If you've been keeping track, Capcom has already revealed The Amazon, The Himalayas, and Transylvania --...

Capcom shows off 30 minutes of DuckTales' Himalayas stage

We already knew that Capcom was showing off the Himalayas level from DuckTales Remastered at San Diego Comic-Con. However, it also has a treat for anyone that couldn't attend the show. Capcom's released a 30 minute vide...

The Smurfs 2: The Video Game stars evil Peter Molyneux

The Smurfs 2: The Video Game isn't your typical licensed movie game chaff, thanks to what appears to be an appearance from 22 Cans' Peter Molyneux as iconic Smurfs villain Gargamel. Molyneux of course is known for the Fable ...

Pore over Shantae's original design sketches

The release of EarthBound on the Wii U unfortunately overshadowed the equally long-awaited arrival of WayForward's Game Boy Color gem Shantae on the 3DS. But I'm not about to sit by and allow our spunky little gal pal to be i...

Scale the Himalayas in DuckTales Remastered

The next DuckTales Remastered stage to be unveiled is the Moon! ... ... is what I'd like to say, but it's actually the Himalayas. In addition to the new trailer above, there are some screens and enemy art below. Don't get in...

Regular Show game is an amalgam of old-school genres photo
Regular Show game is an amalgam of old-school genres
by Steven Hansen

Not to be outdone by its contemporary, Adventure Time, and the upcoming Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, Cartoon Network toon Regular Show is getting a long-titled game of its own, Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land.

In Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby In 8-Bit Land, Mordecai and Rigby get transported into some of their favorite video games. The duo will have to use their best skills and unique abilities to traverse the various challenges to escape and return home in this ‘eggscellent’ journey.

I'm less familiar with Regular Show than I am Adventure Time, having only caught a few episodes of the former, but Destructoid's own Tony Ponce raves about the show ad nauseam. In the linked piece, in fact, Tony notes the show's predilection towards retro games, which is quite appropriate for 8-Bit Land. I may not be all that familiar with the show, but I'm more than familiar with the genres it's employing.

Exploring Adventure Time's dungeon because I DON'T KNOW

WayForward is coming with a follow-up to last year's Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!, but it's not quite a sequel. Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW is a multiplayer dungeon crawler and, in...

DuckTales flies in August, boxed PS3 version incoming photo
DuckTales flies in August, boxed PS3 version incoming
by Tony Ponce

You know what I never had a chance to do at E3 this year? Visit Scrooge McDuck's money bin. Not my fault that iam8bit planted the installation friggin' miles away from the show floor! Those jerks!

Anyway, Capcom has finally announced launch dates for DuckTales Remastered. Wii U, PS3, and PC players can solve a mystery on August 13, but Xbox 360 players will have to wait until September 11 to rewrite history. But wait! There is an additional surprise in the form of a limited-edition boxed release, exclusive to the PS3, arriving August 20. Okay, it's just a download code rather than a physical disc, but you get sweet cover art and a special DuckTales collector's pin!

To hype yourselves up, check out the first part of WayForward's documentary chronicling their whirlwind development journey. Also remember to set aside some fowl funds -- $14.99 for the digital release, $19.99 for the PS3 box.

Review: Mighty Switch Force! 2 photo
Review: Mighty Switch Force! 2
by Chris Carter

I've been in love with the WayForward's eShop titles ever since Mighty Flip Champs! dropped in 2009. It was a beautiful, challenging, vibrant game that was followed up by Mighty Milky Way and Mighty Switch Force!, with the latter seeing the most success -- enough to warrant an HD Wii U port and a full sequel.

The only problem is, WayForward tends to excel when it's constantly thinking up new worlds and characters. I think somewhere in the process of developing a sequel, they missed a bit of the magic.

The 'Quack Pack' is back in DuckTales Remastered

DuckTales was always one of those games that I never thought in a million years would get a re-release, much less a remake with hand-drawn art and fully voiced dialog performed by the original cartoon's voice actors. Somehow,...
