Enter the Childhood Flashback: Ducktales Announced

I’ll just leave this here…

This was one of those games that I’ve been looking for for quite some time. Whenever I see NES games on sale I scour the shelves looking for this lost piece of my childhood.

You see, back in the day, when you could rent video games this was one of my regulars. Eventually played it enough to beat it.

At the time it had been on a birthday list. I was probably about as old as my oldest daughter is now, and it was a toss-up between this and Base Wars.

The last weekend I rented it prior to my birthday I beat it, and announced proudly to my mother that I therefore no longer wanted it for my birthday.

She admitted to me later that this caused a bit of a panic as she’d already bought it for me. She rushed out and got Base Wars, having had to unwrap Ducktales to do the return if I remember the story correctly.

Base Wars was a satisfying game. I loved it. Still do. It’s another one I’d love to see remade… but after all these years I’ve been hankering to replay Ducktales. Now I can do so with updated graphics and share the experience with my younglings.

Redflare was amazed by my luck. She knows this is a game that I’ve been looking for for a while. Along with Elevator Action, for instance.

Summer 2013, here we come!

Any other classics you’d love to see remastered? Earthbound perhaps?
