Disney Afternoon Collection from Capcom
Retro is coming back in a huge way with some famed Disney classic video games. Capcom decided to unleash new information today of a Disney Afternoon collection, which is a compilation of six games that feature some old school cartoon characters from my childhood. The best thing about getting home after school was catching up with that afternoon hours before the evening shows began.
Players will be able to relive their childhood afternoons with Disney and explore these pieces of gaming history with classics including:
- 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.
All six games are new and improved HD versions of the originals and feature a number of filtering options that replicate a classic retro look and feel. This collection also offers new ways to play with Boss Rush and Time Attack modes for each game. In Boss Rush mode, players battle through challenging boss encounters consecutively, while Time Attack mode encourages time-based gameplay and provides online leaderboards that track the fastest times for each game. A new “Rewind” feature makes these challenging titles more accessible for newcomers, with the option to rewind time and enjoy a swift recovery from blunders. Additionally, the in-game Disney Museum will provide history buffs with a wealth of content to celebrate the era of the original releases, such as concept art, advertisements, character art, and music – all preserved in their original glory.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will be released digitally for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC beginning April 18, 2017. It will go for $19.99/€19.99 in North America and Europe. I wished they re-released gargoyles the video game as well since that was part of the Disney afternoon too, but not bonkers…you can keep bonkers! -Beast Out-
