Duck Tales Remastered Increases Original's Price 45%

Six days ago Capcom announced Duck Tales Remastered was in development and would be released on Xbox Live, PSN, and Wii U eshop. Since the announcement, people have been clamoring to buy copies of the original NES classic. Duck Tales NES prices have increased more than 45% since the reveal.

The cartridge only resale price increased from $10 to $14.50 now.

The remastered version seems to have only increased prices on the original and not the sequel.
The sequel is not well known outside of game collectors and is already selling for $90 so this isn't very surprising. Duck Tales 2 is only being purchased by collectors at these prices.

I wish I kept Ducktales 2. I remember selling it for $60. Its cool to see the the original to spike, probably the best game on the NES.

As I personally own a copy of Ducktales 2 (with the manual no less), I can personally say that the game is inferior to the 1st Ducktales game. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, but there are errors in the text in the game and its more of the same game, but it feels and plays, slightly differently.

The first was definitely better.

I'm not kidding, MINUTES after I saw the trailer days ago I saw this coming, and bought DT2. Still got number 1, still love it.

I never had a chance to play Duck Tales 2, but consensus seems to be it was not as good. That would be another factor explaining why it hasn't increased in price much but Duck Tales 1 has.

Duck Tales 2:
Already expensive
Mostly collectors buying it
Not as good as the original

There is also the fact that there is a Gameboy port of the game that also came out in 1993. People may not be aware of it due to its extremely late release or think of the Gameboy port, which sold way more copies.
