During today’s Disney and Marvel Games Showcase, we learned about a curious mod that you might have missed during the action if you blinked: Gargoyles. We get Gargoyles Remaster.
Developed by Empty Clip Studios (which recently worked on the Streets of Rage and Yakuza mash-up in Kamurocho), Gargoyles Remastered is exactly what it says on the box: a modified version of the platformer classic that was at Sega Genesis in 1995.
Gargoyles Remastered is planned for a console and PC release with updated visuals and controls, but there’s no release date for it yet.
If you’re less familiar with the Gargoyles themselves, the game is based on the Disney animated series of the same name that aired back in the ’90s and follows a group of gargoyles in modern-day New York City who protect them from various supervillains. It’s been part of Disney’s afternoon programming back in the day, and it’s become a cult genre over the years. It’s currently available on Disney+.
Gargoyles Remastered joins a number of other Disney platformers that have seen the pros in recent years, including Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book.
