Life is like a hurricane, here in Minecraft. But Mojang's blocky world builder looks a little bit different today. That's because it's getting some special crossover content with another breakout pop culture hit, the 2017 DuckTales series. A couple of years ago, Disney rebooted its 1987 animated phenomenon and while it had a high bar to clear, the reboot has proven to be even better than the original. Now DuckTales is officially getting the Minecraft treatment.
Browsers of the Minecraft Marketplace can now find the DuckTales Adventure Map. This offers up a handful of familiar locations, from Duckburg itself all the way to the animated show's various adventure sites. Everything is faithful to the 2017 series, from the locales to the various collectible items. And yes, there's even a Money Bin to store your various treasures.
On top of the maps, players can also find more than 30 character models based on the DuckTales series. That includes Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, and nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. It also includes new breakout characters, like long-lost mother Della Duck and the refreshingly-rebooted Webby, who feels like a much more kid-friendly Lara Croft in this iteration of the series. There are even a few DuckTales-adjacent skins available, like Darkwing Duck and a few of his rogues.
DuckTales has a rich history in video games, going all the way back to the original NES classic from Capcom. The creators of the rebooted series are also big fans of both the original series and the NES classic. In fact, the NES Moon theme is now officially Disney canon.
The DuckTales Adventure Map is now avialable across all versions of Minecraft. More details can be found on the Minecraft website. And as a massive DuckTales fan myself, I'd be remiss if I didn't link to our old DuckTales retrospective from 2015.
