Want to play the new DuckTales remake from Capcom and Wayforward but don’t like digital distribution? If you’re in North America this is now possible, as Capcom has released disc based versions of the game for PS3, 360, and Wii U. Each version retails for $19.99. The publisher has released a new “Duckstep” video to coincide with the retail release.

It’s time to solve a mystery, or re-write history, as Capcom is excited to announce that the disc-based version of DuckTales: Remastered is available now in retail store shelves across North America. Fans of the digital version, or new players who have yet to experience the nostalgic re-imagining of the iconic title, can now pick up this disc-based alternative for $19.99 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.

To help celebrate this quack-tastic event, the team has put together an all new “Duckstep” video that is guaranteed to shake your tail feathers.

Originally released in 1989 on the Nintendo Entertainment System , DuckTales was widely acknowledged as one of the generation’s seminal platform titles. DuckTales: Remastered once again follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they explore different themed worlds on their search for five legendary treasures.

The development team at WayForward have taken the levels and layout from the original release and expanded on them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience; but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.
