Video games bearing popular licenses have garnered a negative stigma, which isn’t entirely unearned. For example, the latest Mighty Morphin Power Rangers beat ‘em up has little to offer players. However, plenty of enjoyable licensed games exist, and Capcom will re-release six of them in The Disney Afternoon Collection.
CAPCOM ANNOUNCES THE DISNEY AFTERNOON COLLECTION
Six classic NES titles spanning four franchises are bundled together: Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2 and TaleSpin.
New to this collection is the aptly named Rewind feature; holding a button down will allow you second chances at clearing an obstacle. Sounds reminiscent of a mechanic seen in Braid, although it’s meant to help players in this collection.
Veteran players can compete in the new Time Attack mode for the top spot in the online leaderboards. The ability to rewind time is blocked here, however, so players will be put to the test!
Similarly, a Boss Rush will be included for those who want to jump into the action. Rewinding is blocked here, too.
Finally, a Museum containing concept art, music and more curios from the era will be included for historic preservation.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will launch on April 18 for $19.99. Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC will receive the 8-bit memoriam. Additionally, this isn’t the only recent example of Capcom and Disney working together, as their renewed interest in the Marvel vs. Capcom series has shown.
Will you reminisce with these six Disney classics?
