#3.  DuckTales Remastered

The original DuckTales remains one of the greatest 2D platformers of all time and easily one of the best-licensed games ever. If you are going to remake it, you can’t really mess with the established gameplay, it’s too perfect.

So Capcom went the safe but really smart route by just making the 2013 Ducktales Remastered as close to the beloved classic Disney cartoon show as possible. The stages and sprites are all redone beautifully and look straight out of the show. The original voice cast from the show is all here and recorded dialogue for all of your favorite characters. The gameplay is arguably a little more forgiving than the original, but more or less intact. It’s a really great remake that adds mostly surfaces touches but in a way that in my opinion really improves the experience if you were a huge fan of both the game and the cartoon show.

Sadly, Ducktales Remastered is still only available on last-gen consoles physically and was removed from digital storefronts this past August, so it’s a little hard to acquire now. Hopefully, a re-release of the remaster will happen sooner rather than later. In the meantime, the original game is available in The Disney Afternoon Collection maddeningly available on every platform except the Nintendo Switch (seriously, why is that?).
