Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers and Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2 – Bring in a friend for classic co-op Capcom platforming action as one of you plays as Chip, and the other as Dale.
Darkwing Duck – Jump in the shoes of superhero Darkwing Duck and fight crime with lots of charm and wits.
DuckTales and DuckTales 2 – Embark on classic treasure seeking adventures through exotic stages as the pogo master millionaire Scrooge McDuck.
TaleSpin – Take to the skies as rad pilot Baloo in a unique take on the shoot ’em up genre, where you get to change the direction of your plane at any time.
The games will also feature some brand new content that is exclusive to this collection, which include:
REWIND! So it’s probably been a while since you’ve played these games, or maybe it’s your first time diving into them. Either way, some of those jumps and surprise enemy attacks can really throw a wrench into an otherwise perfect run. Enter the Rewind feature: just hold down a button, go back in time, and rewrite history by nailing those sick pogo tricks and crate throws.
TIME ATTACK! Race against the clock and use the online leaderboards to compare your best times with other players across the web. Note you cannot use the Rewind feature here, so make sure you practice beforehand!
BOSS RUSH! Just looking for a quick way to challenge your reflexes? Good news: we have some pretty intense boss battles waiting for you. Just like in Time Attack mode, it’s a true test of your skills, so no help from the Rewind feature here either.
The Disney Afternoon Collection will also include bonus concept art, sketches, music, and more.
