New Capcom Bundle Brings Back Classic Disney Games Like DuckTales and Rescue Rangers

Six classic Disney games are being rereleased as a new bundle dubbed The Disney Afternoon Collection. The new collection features titles created by Capcom during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s for platforms like the NES and Sega Genesis, all of which were based on Disney animated series. Games include DuckTales and its sequel, Darkwing DuckTaleSpin, as well as both Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers titles.

Capcom says that the games have been “beautifully restored” with support for 1080p HD visuals, as well as optional filters to make them look a touch more retro. The games have also been updated with some more ways to play, with both a boss rush and time attack mode added for each of the six titles. And since classic games can be fairly challenging, Capcom has also added an “option to rewind time and enjoy a swift recovery from blunders.” Longtime fans will also be able to dig into a collection of concept art, advertisements, and music in the in-game museum.

The Disney Afternoon Collection will be launching on April 18th for $19.99 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Square Enix and Marvel Team for Multiple Games, Starting with the Avengers

Square Enix is working with Marvel on multiple games from the Marvel universe, starting with an Avengers title as the first of its projects. The game is being promoted with the hashtag #Reassemble, and appears to center around the aftermath of the events of Captain America: Civil War, which likely means it’ll either precede or coincide with the next Avengers movie, which is set for release in May 2018.

The Avengers Project Trailer

The trailer basically gives us a look at the battle-worn, discarded equipment of a number of avengers, including Thor, Iron Man and Captain America. It also tells us that Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal are also involved in the game’s development.

So far, we know little else beyond that, but it’s exciting to see a developer like Square Enix get behind a franchise as successful and beloved as Marvel’s.
