This. I never played the game or watched the series, but I'm such a fan of the source material that I'll probably get this.

According to IGN it's August 13th on Steam, WiiU and PS3, and Sept 11th on the 360. Enjoy your Summer of the Arcade!

Yeah, I saw that. A day earlier is fine by me Wonder why the 360 version is lagging behind.

In a weird way, the lack of backward compatibility in other systems is leaning me towards getting the WiiU version of the game (unless it's horribly buggy or something). In other Disney related news, I'm also leaning that way for Infinity.

I was thinking the same thing fujishig. I have a shit ton of MS points but I'm enjoying the WiiU lately. I might cave so I don't have to wait and that way it's on a console that I know will be hooked up for awhile.

It's a stupid MS policy : No other XBLA games during their Summer of the Arcade, and no multi-console games as part of the SotA (unless they're delayed on the other consoles like Lara Croft or the previous TMNT brawler).

Yep, or you can use the gamepad to display the map.

Pre-ordered from PSN with PS+ discount and $10 back for purchase the other three titles. So basically I'm getting DT Remastered for free, can't wait!

Re: Duck Tales Remastered! (XBLA, PSN, WII U) - Summer 2013

I've never pre-ordered a game on PSN before. How does this work? Does it automatically get installed? Do I get a notification when it's available? What time will it be available?

I. Can't. WAIT.

Nope, it won't install itself. But when the store updates (usually between 2pm-6pm PT on Tuesday, but sometimes as early as Noon and occasionally as late as 8-9PM), the game will appear as "Free" when you log back into the PSN store. You can select it and download it directly from there.
Alternatively, you can go to the Online Store after the update, log in, click on the game and queue it up for your PS3 -- it might download it to your system before you get home possibly. BTW : Best thing about pre-ordering it from the PSN Store (besides the 20% discount for PS Plus members)? The free Static theme they give you is beautiful and awesome!
Spoiler:


First English-language review is in from an Australian site. Sounds like they did a great, great job with the conversion. Now I know who Way Forward is (it was a topic of discussion in the Smurfs 2 game thread).

No guarantee, but this might be on the Wii U eshop at midnight. That's what they did for The Cave. I think that retail releases and downloadable titles that aren't part of the regular Thursday update get midnight releases. I would love to be playing this tonight.

I pre-ordered this on the PS3 since I'm a Plus member and it was discounted. Plus that background is pretty awesome. And the $10 credit.

It's only a $10 Credit if you bought all 4 PLAY games (Stealth, Inc, ibb & ebb, Cloudberry Kingdom, Ducktales). Preordering also gets you a 20% discount if you're PS Plus. And yeah, like I said, that theme is fantastic eye candy.

IGN gives it a 7.0 and says it has some problems, especially with story elements and some with controls.

Re: Duck Tales Remastered! (XBLA, PSN, WII U) - Summer 2013

The storyline issue seems like a fair criticism. Is making those more easily skippable something that could be done in an update/patch later? As for the gameplay, well, either the game does gameplay like the old game or it makes it different. Either way, some fans of the original will be frustrated.

Well I just pre-ordered the game on PSN at the last minute (well, last few hours anyway).

It's getting a mix of reviews, although they're mostly positive:
