Power Button - Episode 103: WayForward Director Austin Ivansmith Rewrites History With DuckTales: Remastered
August 15, 2013
Life is like a hurricane when WayForward's Austin Ivansmith, director of the recently released DuckTales: Remastered, joins Blake Grundman and I for an hour to talk all about the development of the game. You'll hear about how the project began, how closely involved Disney and Capcom were with the development process, what inspired the addition of new elements, how the new game matches up with the original Nintendo Entertainment System release, what it's like to direct legendary voice actors like Alan Young and June Foray, which line of Scrooge McDuck dialogue Disney ordered to be changed, how the rearranged soundtrack was composed, what Remastered means for the future of the DuckTales brand, if a mobile or handheld version of the game is in the cards, whether or not everyone involved is interested in creating new editions of other classic Capcom/Disney collaborations from that era, how to handle negative reviews, and so much more. It's over an hour of conversation that'll answer the DuckTales: Remastered questions that you didn't even know you had. Special thanks to Austin for coming on the show!
