As if the return of one of 8-bit gaming’s most treasured titles wasn’t exciting enough news, the inclusion of Steam Trading Cards has given PC gamers yet another reason to yell “WOO-HOO!” from their cubicles today.
If you’re new to the whole Trading Card thing, they’re like tradable achievements you can unlock simply by playing DuckTales: Remastered. Some cards are rarer than others, and certain cards you’ll have to trade via the Steam Community, but once obtained can be crafted into custom badges for your profile. This is splendid news, plus it’s hard to argue that this gels perfectly with Scrooge McDuck’s never-ending pursuit of treasure at any cost. So go and grab DuckTales: Remastered now and get started on your Trading Card adventure.
If it wasn't already obvious, we're among the millions of DuckFans who consider the original game’s tunes to be wonderful, timeless, and always worth keeping on a playlist. But even more to the music’s credit, these songs have stood the test of time so well, they’re beloved by people who’ve never actually played the game or seen the DuckTales TV show! See how WayForward dealt with that audible legacy below.
Share a pic of your old Scrooge stuff and we’ll send you some retro DuckTales figures!
You won’t find a lot of DuckTales merch in stores these days, but that certainly wasn’t the case in the 1990s. Action figures, lunchboxes, bedsheets, etc. If you wanted to blanket your world with Scrooge and the gang, you had options. Well, we’re not here to mourn what once was, we’re actually here asking you guys to do something fun: <a href="http://www.capcom-unity.com/xantista/blog/2013/08/08/show-us-your-ducktales-stuff'"> SHOW US YOUR DUCKTALES STUFF! </a>

We'll also accept old photos of you with DuckTales stuff in them, or you can even whip up your own DuckTales merch!
