DuckTales: Remastered is being removed from digital storefronts later this week. If you want to add it to your collection, you’d better act quickly.

A Capcom employee announced the move in a recent blog post but provided no explanation as to its sudden disappearance. You’ll have until August 8 at 5 p.m. Pacific to grab the game on Xbox 360 and Xbox One and until August 9 to pick it up on PlayStation 3 and Wii U. The post mentions the Steam version will no longer be available after 4:59 pm Pacific but doesn’t give a date.

An HD remake of the original DuckTales that dropped on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989, DuckTales: Remastered launched on modern platforms in mid-2013 before finding its way to Android and iOS devices in 2015.

Capcom said those that have already bought the game digitally will be able to re-download it, even after it is removed. Furthermore, disc-based versions of the game will install and play as they normally would.

At least they had a physical release. Oh wait it was just a digital code in a physical box. This is really stupid.
