When DuckTales: Remastered was announced by Capcom earlier this year, I was both thrilled and frightened. Had video games gone the way of movies? Will we now constantly see reboots and remakes of classic games instead of focusing on fresh and original material? Apparently, I wasn’t the only one with this thought. Speculation arose whether Capcom would create HD adaptations of its other classic Disney titles.
This question was first ignited when DuckTales Remastered producer Rey Jimenez revealed in March, should the DuckTales remake be successful it could lead to “more Disney games being remade.”
Months later on the Capcom Unity forums Jimenez once again fueled the remake questions by revealing,
The better [DuckTales: Remastered] does, the more likely we’ll do another.
If Capcom is pleased with the numbers DuckTales Remastered sells, Jimenez reported Chip n’ Dale would be the next logical step should the remastering continue.
Now that I have played DuckTales Remastered, I wouldn’t mind a remastered version of Chip n’ Dales. Hopefully like DuckTales it would be refreshing yet nostalgic and it’s not like Capcom wouldn’t be releasing anymore new and innovative material. It’s really the best of both worlds. Only time will tell what Capcom does but I’m keeping my fingers crossed because when there’s danger, once they’re involved, somehow whatever’s wrong gets solved.
