RadarPlays - DuckTales (NES)

Tales of derring-do, bad and good luck tales

Last Friday at PAX East Capcom surprised many with the announcement of DuckTales Remastered, a remake of what many see as an underrated 8-bit classic. But the GamesRadar staff was too excited to wait for the XBLA/PSN/Wii U rerelease this summer, so we plugged in the original NES version for this week’s retro RadarPlays. Henry, Cooper, and special guest/unofficial DuckTales speed runner Chris Hoffman take a look at how well the original holds up today. Woo-oo!

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!
