We’ve already covered the Japanese release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Short Peace Project on PlayStation 3 few weeks ago. Usually this is something that never make it out of Japan, but incredibly enough, today we’re here to report you that Namco Bandai has announced a localized release for the US.
Capcom’s amazing remake of evergreen classic Duck Tales, after its debut this year as a digital download, finally gets a disc-based retail version. Bless those bagpipes, fans of physical media! DuckTales: Remastered will be getting a disc and box on store shelves across North America starting November 12th. Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U at $19.99.
Yes, everything’s really cool, but what about us? What about Europe? Well, we asked Capcom UK and this was the answer.
@ThatDamnPixel We’re currently discussing opportunities for a physical release in Europe. At this stage nothing has been decided”

Let’s hope Europeans, let’s hope. Stay tuned!
If you pre-ordered it (like almost 3 years ago), your long-waited copy should be on some truck or plane, travelling to your post box. But, as long we still got our press copy, we decided to record some gameplay video; and the one above is from the very first level of the game, played in hard. Enjoy.
We already told you that at PAX game devs just go crazy, so here we are again! Capybara Games and Double Fine Production are sharing the same booth at this week’s PAX East, so they decided to release a special retail version of the same boundle you can buy on Steam. This special edition will be limited to only 200 copies and will be available only at their shared PAX booth.
The box will contain all the games from the Steam pack, plus a very cool gem: the two games studios teamed up to develop a racer, called Capy Fine Racing GP and featuring all the characters from both companies. But this isn’t all, indeed the racing game will be released on floppy disk…yep, you heard it right, old school 1.44 MB floppy disk!
This is what Capy co-founder Nathan Vella has told to EDGE regarding the co-developed racing game:
“Ken Yeung and Vic Nguyen made a game called Capy Fine Racing GP, which is a little jokey – but still rad fun – OutRun-style racer staring Capy and Double Fine characters. The game will be released on the 3.5″ floppies that come inside the Capy and Double Fine limited edition boxed bundle, AKA the retail version of the Steam bundle that we just launched which includes both studios’ Steam games. We only made 200 boxes, and even then some of the floppies might not work, but the people who buy them will be allowed and encouraged to share the game.
It’s just something we did for pure fun and loving the idea of doing cool shit with our friends, in the spirit of the Capy Double Fine PAX combo. While it’s totally a real game, it’s also not at all a real game.”
If you are at PAX right now, you definitely should try to put your hands on one of those limited edition boxes! Good luck!
We’re happy to announce that Microsoft will bring Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition to retail as a disc-based version!
This version of Minecraft will contain all the same features and content included in the current Xbox 360 Edition version, as well as the new additions coming soon.
The retail disc will hit the stores in the US on April 30, and will cost $19.99. The retail package is also coming to Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan in early June. So, Microsoft…WHERE THE FUCK IS EUROPE?
