In the early ’90s, the Disney Afternoon gave us a full two-hour-+ block of shows featuring beloved characters, including the giant among them, DuckTales. And before Nintendo switched to the SNES, Capcom adapted four of the Disney Afternoon shows into games for the NES. For the better part of two decades, those games have been officially locked away. But starting next month, all six of the Disney Afternoon games will be back in play!
Capcom has announced The Disney Afternoon Collection, which will include Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, and Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2. Note that titles will be released in all of their 8-bit glory, so all of the classic quirks and gameplay should be intact. Capcom is also adding a few new features to these titles. For example, Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, as well as a Rewind feature that may help players make some of those tricky jumping maneuvers.
All six of these titles were released when Capcom was creating some of the best platformers in the business, which means that these are some really fun games. By itself, DuckTales is still considered to be a classic, and it was given a modern remake just a few years ago. Now we’ll get a chance to hear the “Moon Theme” on our awesome sound system!
The Disney Afternoon Collection will be released on April 18 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
