The Disney Afternoon Collection now available – Six classic NES games on modern systems
As an homage to the classic block of cartoons that made up The Disney Afternoon, Capcom has released a collection of six Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games for Windows (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The six games are: DuckTales, DuckTales 2, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, and Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2. You can also get the PS4 and Xbox One versions digitally via Amazon.
While not every game is a winner, as both an original fan of The Disney Afternoon and of themed compilations like this, I find it pretty hard to resist. The added rewind functionality and save slot for each game makes these sometimes overly hard games (particularly for my middle-aged reflexes) even better.
I’m also a bit ambivalent about this not being on the Nintendo Switch. Even though that system lacks a proper d-pad in its default configuration (making games like Puyo Puyo Tetris a bit frustrating for me), it still seems like it would be a great way to play this particular collection. Maybe in the future.
