Well Capcom just went up a peg in my book. On the verge of releasing DuckTales Remastered, an HD remake of DuckTales 1 & 2, Capcom has created and sent out 150 media packages containing a DuckTales lunch box, but it’s what’s inside the lunch box that has this retro collector salivating. It contains not just a numbered certificate of authenticity, not just an old school Capcom promo poster, not just a coupon for green cheese (???), but a GOLD cart of the NES game DuckTales.
Did I mention that it comes packed in shredded money? Legalities of defacing currency aside, this is a strong move by Capcom to raise awareness for the upcoming digital download release, and also to send retro game collectors like myself into a tizzy. And before you ask, yes, it’s been confirmed that the game does run on an NES and it is in fact the original DuckTales. We’ll have to see what ridiculous prices these go for when they eventually hit Ebay.
