Japanese video game developer and publisher Capcom recently announced that their Metroidvania style platform video game DuckTales: Remastered will leave digital storefronts beginning August 8, 2019. However, those who own it will still have access to it.
DuckTales: Remastered is leaving digital storefronts in a duck-blur starting August 8th.
Life is like a hurricane, so get it on sale now or re-download it if you’ve previously purchased it. More details:

While the company has not mentioned or even hinted at a possible reason for the removal, thick chances are it could be owing to some licensing issues since DuckTales is a Disney product. DuckTales: Remastered is currently on sale on Steam for $4 and will go away after two days.
“Pogo jump your way into Scrooge’s Money Bin while you can! DuckTales: Remastered is getting a farewell price drop for 75% off on most platforms before it gets removed for purchase,” read a blog post on Capcom’s official website.
The blog also informed that game will be digitally available on the following platforms –
Wii U – August 9, 4:59 PM PDT
PlayStation 3 – August 9, 8AM PDT
Xbox 360, Xbox One (via Backwards Compatibility) – August 8, 5 PM PDT
Steam (PC) – 4:59 PM PDT
It also shared, “Disc-based versions of the game will install and play normally, and if you’ve already bought the game digitally, you’ll still be able to re-download it even after it’s removed, too.”
