Capcom's Disney Afternoon Collection Brings Back Six NES Classics

Capcom's Disney Afternoon Collection Brings Back Six NES Classics

Ducktales, Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and more return on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Capcom announced today The Disney Afternoon Collection, a digital collection of the company's classic NES titles. The collection includes DuckTales, DuckTales 2, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, and TaleSpin. The Disney Afternoon Collection will launch on April 18, 2017 for $19.99.

A brief synopsis for each game in the collection is available:

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers and Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 – Bring in a friend for classic co-op Capcom platforming action as one of you plays as Chip, and the other as Dale.

Darkwing Duck – Jump in the shoes of superhero Darkwing Duck and fight crime with lots of charm and wits.

DuckTales and DuckTales 2 – Embark on classic treasure seeking adventures through exotic stages as the pogo master millionaire Scrooge McDuck.

TaleSpin – Take to the skies as rad pilot Baloo in a unique take on the shoot 'em up genre, where you get to change the direction of your plane at any time.

The series seems to be getting the same treatment as the Mega Man Legacy Collection. Full 1080p presentation, retro TV filter options, Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, a rewind feature, and an in-game Museum full of development information and art.

At the moment, there does not seem to be a version of the Collection available on the Nintendo Switch.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.

Starting Screen: Sprite-Based Game Art Is Far from Overdone

Indie developers love sprites, but each studio has a unique thumbprint that keeps the retro style fresh. Plus: Fate of the Furious wins the box office, there's a cat in Kowloon Walled City, and C-C-Chip 'n Dale's music rocks.
