Monster Boy developer, FDG Entertainment, took to Twitter last night to announce their brand new game – -Ducktales Quackshot. However, since its April Fool’s, of course it wasn’t real.
But the funny part of the April Fool’s joke is that the game is actually real, but Disney denied the developers the license to work on the game! Yes, of course Disney would pass on something cool like Ducktales Quackshot, a new Ducktales game featuring the new art style from the rebooted animated show.
At the moment, the game is not in development, but developer FDG Entertainment didn’t want to waste their hard work on the pitch to just throw it in the trash, so they made an April Fool’s joke out of it. And who knows maybe Disney will change their mind after seeing fans feedback!
