Capcom has today unveiled two new remastered classics from their revered catalogue , DuckTales and Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara. For those interested in DuckTales, you'll be able to take up the adventures of classic hero Scrooge McDuck as he explores differently themed worlds to collect their treasures and become the world’s richest duck.
DuckTales Remastered has seen the development team take the levels and layout from the original 1989 release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.

Further additions to the original include an all new tutorial level where players can get familiar with the iconic pogo jump and cane swing; while Scrooge McDuck’s Museum allows players to track all their stats and compare their progress with others via global leaderboards.
Alongside the announcement of DuckTales Capcom has also unveiled a double pack titled Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara that will feature both Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and its sequel Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. The two titles will see various HD changes including the addition of a Character Visualiser that can allow players to track their characters and create a "more balanced multiplayer dungeon party, or point out which characters are most under-used."
Just as in the arcades, up to four players will select their character class before doing battle against the mythical beasts from the Dungeons & Dragons’ universe with a mix of melee, range and magic attacks. But now, thanks to GGPO, there’s no need to jostle for position around a cabinet as Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara offers seamless drop-in/drop-out online gameplay in one of two modes. In addition to the classic arcade mode with its branching paths and multiple endings, players can utilize the all new House Rules feature and customize gameplay for a completely different experience.

The new extras don’t stop there. The Character Visualizer lets players track which characters they and their friends use most often and can help create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon party, or point out which characters are most under-used; with further gameplay stats tracked via a global leaderboard. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara also includes a Challenge system that sets players in-game goals in return for level-ups and coins which can be spent in the Vault: a treasure trove of unlockables and gameplay loot. Finally, owners of the Wii U version will be able to use the GamePad touch screen to select spells and items with ease, allowing for a more streamlined gameplay experience.
All three titles will be making their way to the Wii U eShop, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live during this year. Check out the trailers below for a great wave of nostalgia and to see just how HD they are.

I shouldn't need to buy the remastered one. My copy on the right already says it's State of the Art High Resolution.
