Capcom announces 8-bit retro Disney compilation

Six of Capcom’s 8-bit Disney classics will be bundled into a single release on PS4, Xbox One and PC next month.

The Disney Afternoon Collection includes Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, Darkwing Duck and TaleSpin. These titles were originally released between 1989 and 1994. The name ‘Disney Afternoon’ comes from a US TV series.

Interestingly, despite the titles original appearing on the NES, the release is not coming to Switch or 3DS.

These are not remasters, incidentally, so expect the visuals to be pretty faithful to the original releases. They will of course output in 1080p, and are described by Capcom as being ‘restored’.

New content will be included, however, such as Time Attack and Boss Rush modes, the latter of which follows the formula created by streamers and could go down well with that audience. Also added is a Rewind feature that allows players to undo mistakes without the need to re-run an entire level. There’s also a museum mode for concept art and making of material.

The Disney Afternoon Collection will be released on April 18th and will cost £15.99 in the UK.

Here’s the Capcom blurb on each title:

  • 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.
