Capcom to release HD remasters of six classic NES games in The Disney Afternoon Collection.

The new compilation brings together high-definition remasters of six popular NES games that were based on Disney’s TV animations of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Games include Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, DuckTales and Chip ’n Dale: Rescue Rangers.

As well as an improved 1080p resolution, each title will also have a range of screen filters that will replicate the ‘classic look and feel’ of the era’s CRT televisions. That will be fun to play with for ten minutes.

  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2
  • Darkwing Duck
  • DuckTales
  • DuckTales 2
  • TaleSpin

Capcom are also adding new gameplay features, with Boss Rush and Time Attack modes being developed for each title. Boss Rush mode does as you’d expect and challenges players with onslaught of consecutive boss encounters. Time Attack mode focuses on encouraging fast, time-based level completion and will be supported by online leaderboards.

Aficionados of classic NES games will know that many titles of the era are rock hard by today’s standards. To accommodate newcomers a ‘Rewind’ feature is also being added that ‘does a Sands of Time and provides swift resurrection from any perilous missteps.

To acknowledge the nostalgic importance these games hold for Nintendo and Disney fans, an in-game museum will also collate a wealth of concept art, advertisements, character art, and music.

The only thing missing from the package is a release on a Nintendo console. The Disney Afternoon Collection will be available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The game will hit digital stores on April 18, priced £15.99/ €19.99/ $19.99.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
