Don't Expect DuckTales, TaleSpin, or Darkwing Duck on VC Anytime Soon
DuckTales, TaleSpin, and Darkwing Duck were some great Disney cartoons from the 90′s, and they spawned some great games to go along with them (which sadly isn’t so common these days). So these seem like some good candidates to add to the Virtual Console’s NES lineup, right? Maybe, but don’t expect to relive these classics on the Wii anytime soon. According to Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development with Capcom, who developed these games, any re-release is being held back by licensing problems:
“Licensing issues abound. I think you’d be hard pressed to see them show up, but you never know.”
I’d actually expect that to be quite the legal hassle, considering Disney controls the rights to the franchise, which is too bad. There There really aren’t enough games out there featuring pogo stick combat.
