Capcom Announces The Disney Afternoon Collection!
Written By: Kenneth Seward Jr.
Capcom is doubling down on the retro feels by revealing their latest old school bundle. Posed to join their Mega Man Collection, Resident Evil Remakes and DuckTales: Remastered is The Disney Afternoon Collection, a compilation of six games ripped straight from our childhood!
We’re talking about Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and TaleSpin to name a few. All of which will feature 1080p HD support, new game modes (like Boss Rush and Time Attack) and more. There’s even a Disney Museum, showcasing concept art, advertisements, character art and music. It’s basically a way for older gamers to learn something new about these classic titles before sharing it with their younger counterparts.
Speaking of the younger gamers, I know that some of these games are rather difficult – I’ve yet to beat Chip ‘n Dale without help. Thankfully, Capcom had included a Rewind mechanic that allows players to go back in time, past a mistake/failed jump. This makes the prospect of sharing some of these games with my kids a little less daunting.
Check out the full list of games below:
• Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers – This classic lets players team up with a friend in co-op play as they assume the roles of the mischievous Chip and Dale as they take on memorable villain Fat Cat and attempt to solve the mystery of a missing kitten.
• Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 – Fat Cat has escaped and his plans are even more dastardly this time. The titular heroes and supporting cast Monterey Jack, Gadget, and Zipper must stop Fat Cat from his evil dream of world domination!
• Darkwing Duck – Play as the original caped crusader and fight a city full of criminals from the infamous F.O.W.L. organization in this action-packed platforming epic.
• DuckTales – In this iconic platforming adventure, players help Scrooge McDuck fill his feathery pockets with vast riches from across the world.
• DuckTales 2 – The sequel to the original game comes jam-packed with more action and an even bigger caper set in new locations like the Bermuda Triangle and Niagara Falls!
• TaleSpin – Take to the skies as Baloo the bear navigates his plane through exotic and dangerous locations in this side-scrolling shoot-em-up.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will be released on April 18th for $19.99 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
