Ducktales Remastered To Be Delisted From Wii U eShop Friday
« on: August 06, 2019, 01:06:55 PM »

The shiny digital future claims another victim.

Not even the Number One Dime will let you get the remastered Ducktales after Friday.

Capcom have announced that the 2013 Wii U release Ducktales Remastered will be removed from the eShop sometime during the day on Friday. 4:59 PM PT is the quoted removal time. It will be available for 75% off (US/C$3.74) until the delisting occurs.

Ducktales Remastered was the final Ducktales project for several actors from the 1980s animated adaptation, with Alan Young (2016), June Foray (2017) and Russi Taylor (July 26) all passing away in the intervening years. The game did receive a physical release on Wii U with a disc, though it has been out of print for several years.

Why is it being removed? Licensing?

I guess I don't see this as some indictment of digital delivery like some people seem to. For one, this game likely would never have existed in the first place if not for digital storefronts. Secondly, I will still continue to have the game digitally after this, just like physical owners will. If my Wii U dies I'll lose it, just like physical owners will lose it if their disc breaks.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

Yeah, I want to know as well. I have the physical Wii U version, but was hoping for a Switch port or even (long shot) a remake of the sequel since that is a rarer find. Are all storefronts cutting it or just the eShop? Maybe devs have to pay a monthly fee to keep it listed and there are no sales for it. If it were all versions being de-listed I would suspect licensing, but this is only one storefront losing it, so can't be that.

It's been removed from all platforms, so presumably the license cost is prohibitive for whatever reason.
