DuckTales Remastered Music Duckumentary

Video games and music go together like chocolate and peanut butter. A classic video game is often revered as much for its memorable music as the excellent gameplay. DuckTales is no exception to this rule with an amazing NES soundtrack that still holds up 20 years later. Every single song for this game is a classic tune and showers your eardrums with joyous nostalgia. The music for the Moon level in particular is one of the most amazing pieces of NES music ever composed and has been endlessly remixed in every style imaginable. For many, it is as highly regarded as the Wily Stage music from Mega Man 2.

Wayforward is taking this legacy very seriously with DuckTakes: Remastered and it shows in their latest Duckumentary which showcases the love and care put into the music and sound. One of the highlights of the video is the reveal of the Moon theme which has been as anticipated as the game itself and it does not disappoint. The man behind the new soundtrack is the ever talented Jake Kaufman (a.k.a. Virt) who has a long history with Wayforward and is responsible for some of the best retro game music in the industry today. Enjoy and be sure to grab your copy when it releases next week!
