DuckTales: Remastered Gets Patched Up and a Disc-Based Version Is Coming Tuesday

If you’re like me, you’ve downloaded a copy of DuckTales: Remastered and experianced some glitches. According to Capcom Unity, a patch was released, which addressed numerous issues experienced; a patch for the retail disc version is coming Tuesday.

This patch will address just some of the following:

  • Pogo fix- Some users reported that the pogo was unreliable.  Tweaking the window at which the game looks for the pogo input seems to have fixed the issue.  It seems that it was too short and that some users set ups were dropping input frames.
  • Flashing characters- Got rid of the flashing characters.
  • Wii U crashing on the leaderboards.
  • Duckworth sometimes fails to lower down the safe.
  • The title crashes to a black screen when skipping the pre-race cinematic of Magica and Glomgold.
  • In certain conditions the title would fail to respawn correctly after a failed attempt for the race to the dime.
  • We’ve also addressed several stability and crash issues, but the above were the most reported.  If you have an issue you don’t see, please check the patch if it’s still there when the patch comes out.
  • We also added the below item due to a large request:
  • Quick Cinema mode- This mode will skip most of the cutscenes when activated.  The option will show up if you have at least one playthrough completed, even it if was pre-patch.  It’s not a true speedrun option like we wanted to, but some areas, like removing the random number events proved to be risky.

The disc-based version of the game will be released on November 12, 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Duckfans should also be aware that Target is also offering an exclusive Limited Edition of the game with a DuckTales pin with the Wii U edition.
