DuckTales Remastered has an expanded plot, devs clarify

DuckTales Remastered developer WayForward Technologies has explained that it has heavily expanded on the plot of Capcom’s NES original. To be fair, the original explained very little so this is probably an ace idea.

The NES game ended up with Scrooge McDuck exploring a base on the Moon and then scrapping with a giant rat. It also has some of the best 8-bit stage music I’ve ever heard:

Cheers constantlimit.

Ah nostalgia.

Anyway, WayForward Technologies has expanded on the story to explain why the rat is there in the first place and why Scrooge’s nephews have been kidnapped. Speaking with Siliconera Capcom producer producer Rey Jimenez said, “In the original NES version, you go in the UFO to find the remote control to open the area to get to the boss. You don’t really know why. The game doesn’t explain it well.

“In the NES version, you fight a big rat and it didn’t explain why you’re fighting a rat on the moon. That’s explained in here because there are rats they’re experimenting on and you let them loose and that becomes the rat down there. Also, how does Scrooge McDuck breathes on the moon? We explain that as well.”

Nice. The game is heading to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U this summer.
