DuckTales is coming back with even more tales of daring do, bad and good luck tales as Disney XD announced that they're bringing back the 80s cartoon with a new animated series set to launch in 2017.

Considering this is a game starring the miserly McDuck, it's also a bit surprising to find out the mobile title is free.

Celebrating the release of the DuckTales: Remastered video game from Capcom, WayForward and Disney Interactive, Mondo has commissioned four new posters by artists JJ Harrison, Anne Benjamin, Phantom City Creative and DKNG featuring the denizens of Duckburg. Between these, Remastered's release and Fantagraphics' beautiful reproductions of the Carl Barks Duck comics, it's a fine time to be a fan of anthropomorphic ducks who almost uniformly refuse to wear pants.

That said, you can imagine how thrilled I was when Capcom announced that they were doing a new "remastered" version for the current generation of consoles, and after getting a chance to play it at Comic-Con, I'm even more excited for it now.
You know, much as I love video games, I could probably stop paying attention to PAX East new the rest of the weekend and be content. Why? Twenty long years since the release of DuckTales 2 on NES and Game Boy, Capcom and WayForward (and Disney) have announced DuckTales Remastered.
