The Disney Afternoon Collection Has Capcom Going Retro

Six remastered games are designed to rekindle the fun of afternoon cartoons as a kid.


Nostalgia is wonderful, especially if it involves memories of eating cereal in front of the TV while you watched Saturday afternoon cartoons on TV. Capcom and Disney have teamed up to go retro with the announcement of The Disney Afternoon Collection, six old-school cartoon adventures remastered with new-school graphics and features.

While the games have been remade with 1080p graphics and new game modes, such as Boss Rush and Time Attack, they will also have a filtering option that will give them a retro look and feel. And if some of the games are a bit too challenging, a "rewind" feature will make it easier for new players to go back and fix mistakes while playing.

The games are:

  • 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.

The Disney Afternoon Collection will sell for $19.99 and will be available on April 18 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

      Two thoughts.

      2) How is this not coming to Switch? :( Maybe each game will be available on Virtual Console? Oh, a third thought.

        Haha I JUST commented on this in Discord. I think I'm going to have to get it on the PS4. I don't think it will work on my Mac. But I'll get it!

        I imagine it'll be the same remaster, and the other games will get the same treatment, maybe even using the remaster engine

        The remaster probably did well enough that they started work on the rest of them. It'll definitely be the same one.

        Did you watch the trailer or check the article? Both show the original NES versions of all games. DT Remastered doesn't appear to be a part of the package.
