Ah yes, the 90’s. An era in gaming when most licensed games were mediocre to downright terrible. That is unless you’re talking about one of Capcom’s Disney licensed games. Capcom defied convention by releasing games that were not only good, but often great, based on many of Disney’s classic franchises throughout the life of both the NES and the SNES.
Today we’ll be talking about the former with Capcom announcing on their official blog that they will be releasing The Disney Afternoon Collection. This collection will be including six classic titles from the NES library and bringing them to modern consoles as well as PC.
- Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers
- Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers 2
- Darkwing Duck
- DuckTales 2
This will be the first time any of these games have been re-released. Some of the original NES carts are quite rare and tend to go for a high price, particularly DuckTales 2, so this collection is kind of a big deal. There will also be some additional features included such as a rewind mode to undo your mistakes, a time attack mode where you can compete against other players with online leaderboards (rewind is disabled in this mode), and a boss rush mode. There will be other extras like concept art and music as well.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will launch on April 18th for PC, XBox One, and PlayStation 4 for $19.99 USD.
