DuckTales…woo-hoo! Now this is nostalgia taken to the next level. Start with the original side-scrolling NES game, add contemporary graphics, new voice work and a couple of levels the original needed but didn’t have – one with the ability to swim in Scrooge’s money, for example – get some all-new voice casting…
And yeah, sing that theme song from our childhoods incessantly.
Watch the trailer after the jump. Then talk amongst yourselves as to which other Nintendo games need the same treatment. I could go for some revamped Contra games, because fighting aliens just isn’t the same when you’re not doing it under the moniker of Nicaraguan rebels controversially funded by Iranian arms sales.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
