A sequel, ''[=DuckTales=] 2'', followed in 1993. Scrooge has launched another treasure hunt, this time to find the pieces of a map that will lead to an even bigger treasure. The game made significant improvements to the previous game's formula (such as upgrade skills hidden in certain levels and several clever optional puzzles). Both games ended up ported to the GameBoy, as well.

Capcom released a downloadable HD remake of the first game with developers Creator/{{WayForward Technologies}} working with Disney to bring the game to life (and musician [[JakeKaufman Jake "virt" Kaufman]] rescoring the music) on August 13th, 2013 for the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}}, UsefulNotes/WiiU, and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, while {{Xbox 360}} received that game on September 11th; a disc-based version of the game came to [=PlayStation=] 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on November 12th. The HD remake -- ''[=DuckTales=]: Remastered'' -- has a new graphical style (one which aims to mimic the original cartoon), difficulty settings to make things easier or harder for gamers of all skill levels, an expanded storyline, expanded levels, a brand-new final level (Mount Vesuvius), the ability to swim in the Money Bin, unlockable bonus content (including a full-length version of the show's theme song), and '''voice work from the show's original vocal cast''' ([[TheOtherDarrin well, those who were still]] [[AuthorExistenceFailure alive at the time]]). Here's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVvpkNMnWcs reveal trailer]] in all its [[EarWorm earworm-y]] nostalgic glory.

* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Scrooge doesn't wear any sort of spacesuit in the Moon level. {{Handwaved}} in ''Remastered''[[note]]Even though it didn't need to be; he is a character from an animated TV show after all[[/note]], where the ability to breathe is made possible with the Oxy-chew taffy made by Gyro. No explanation is given for how he survives the extreme low temperature and lack of air pressure - or how Glomgold and the Beagle Boys are able to breathe up there, either.

-->'''Fenton:''' Gee boss, why'd you send Gyro back onto the ship?
-->'''Scrooge:''' So he doesn't find out you're Gizmoduck when you put on that suit, you dunderhead.
-->'''Fenton:''' But there are only three of us here, sir. Won't he figure it out anyway when Gizmoduck appears and I've mysteriously vanished?
-->'''Scrooge:''' I wouldnae worry about that. Gyro may be a brilliant inventor, but his deductive reasoning skills are about as good as yours.
