Were you a huge fan of those quirky Disney cartoons from the 80s and 90s, like say, TaleSpin or DuckTales? Well, if you were, then you’ll probably be happy to hear that Capcom has announced they will be releasing a collection of Disney NES adaptations known as The Disney Afternoon Collection.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will include Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, and TaleSpin. And the bundle will be available to download next month, April 18, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in both North America ($19.99) and Europe (£15.99).
What’s extra special about this bundle is that The Disney Afternoon Collection will not only include fan favorite Disney titles, but also those hard-to-find titles, often coveted by retro gaming enthusiasts. As of right now, a loose copy of DuckTales 2 could cost $155 for a collector. And a loose copy of Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 can run you on the average of $220.
The Disney Afternoon Collection has full HD support, with all games running at 1080p resolution. The actual graphics themselves have been upscaled, slapping a fresh face on our old favorites. But for retro purists, The Disney Afternoon Collection also offers various modes that implement filters so that players can enjoy the games with an authentic retro feel, minus all the drawbacks.
Keeping newcomers in mind, Capcom also added in a few other noteworthy options including a Rewind feature which curves the signature difficulty of the original NES titles by allowing players to rewind time and undo costly gameplay mistakes. The Disney Afternoon Collection also includes a Boss Attack Mode where players can consecutively battle difficult bosses and a Time Attack Mode that encourages speedy gameplay. An in-game Disney Museum is also featured, for players interested in learning more about the game’s original releases.
The first trailer for The Disney Afternoon Collection is embedded above, and fans who are planning to attend WonderCon at the end of March will be able to try it out by visiting Capcom’s booth (#1137).
