Capcom announced today at PAX that an HD version of the evergreen 1989 NES game Duck Tales is being developed by WayForward.

The game is called Duck Tales Remastered and it will launch this Summer on PSN, XBLA and Wii U E-Shop all around the world.

The classic platformer features hand-drawn character sprites and a 3D background world. Also, Disney’s original voice actors will lend their talents to the game. The game’s original 8-bit songs will be remastered by WayForward’s Jake Kaufman, and new elements will be included, without spoiling the original concept of the title.

Supergiant Games, a small indie developer known for the masterpiece Bastion, revealed today their new game called Tansistor.

Transistor is a science-fiction-themed action RPG and promises to bring players to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as they explore a stunning futuristic city. The game has been designed to seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, complete with responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling.

Check out the reveal trailer.

In Transistor, players assume the role of a young woman (yes, more female protagonist, please!) who gains control of a powerful weapon after a mysterious group of assailants nearly kills her with it. Now she must fight from street to street against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players will piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as they pursue its former owners.

This looks super cool and we want to play it now. Unfortunately the release date has not been set yet:

“We expect Transistor to be released in early 2014. We have not yet decided on which platform or platforms the game will be available for.”

But if this weekend you’re in Boston, you can always spend a day at PAX East and say “hi” to Supergiant Games guys at booth #892 where they’ll have a playable early build of the game.
