No belated April Fools jokes here. Wayforward and Disney Interactive have just released DuckTales Remastered onto the App Store.
This remake of the NES classic (and game with one of the best soundtracks of the era) includes a new art style, 3D backgrounds, difficulty tweaks, tutorials, voice acting, expanded levels, unlockable art galleries, and so on. It was also something of a hit on consoles when it came out last year; and now it's on iOS.
We'll have a review ready later today, but if you just can't wait you can download DuckTales Remastered right now for $9.99.
As seems to be the trend these days, another point-and-click adventure game is getting the HD rerelease treatment. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition is currently in development and slated for a mid-2014 release. The original, which was released back in 1993 by Sierra, and details the exploits of a writer/book store owner as he attempts to find inspiration for his novels while investigating local murders. Sounds a lot like a TV show, actually.
"I'm thrilled to be back at work on Gabriel Knight and to bring this classic game to a new generation of players," Jensen said in a press release, "It's going to look and feel like a brand new title. But never fear, 100% of the original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is here. I hope both existing fans and new players will love it."
This special 20th Anniversary Edition is being recreated from the ground up (with supervision from the series' creator, Jane Jensen) and will feature enhanced graphics, new voice recordings, and a remastered soundtrack from the original game's composer, Robert Holmes. Sins of the Fathers is set to release on the iPad next year.
