Throughout the month of June, we’re looking back at various games for the original Nintendo that were released in the U.S. in the month of June.
DuckTales 2, developed by Move Software and published by Capcom, was released in North America in June of 1993, following an April release in Japan.
The game, like the original DuckTales for the NES, was a side-scrolling 2D platformer, based on the popular Disney Afternoon animated series of the same name. The player controls Scrooge McDuck in an adventure across various worlds, with his cane used for attacks and interacting with various objects across the levels.
The game, released late in the life cycle of Nintendo’s 8-bit behemoth, got generally good reviews although its release time meant it is more rare than the average NES game. It was recently re-released as part of The Disney Afternoon collection.
