Capcom has made some of my favorite games of all time: Mega Man 3, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Final Fight, Captain Commando, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck. Those last two might sound out of place, but in the 80s and 90s, Capcom made some of the best platformers/action games ever. And speaking of which, I saw an amazing trailer today! The Disney Afternoon Collection is coming back to console and PC! Ducktales, Ducktales 2, both Chip and Dales games, Talespin and Darkwing Duck, these will be in one collection, but will have some modern features/modes: Boss Rush, Time Attack, and Rewind! Some of these games were merciless, and having a Rewind feature would be kind of interesting, to say the least. Can’t say I’d use it, but for people in a newer demographic/audience who do not realize the challenge of NES platformers, they’re going to need all the help they can get. Right on the heels of the new Ducktales cartoon, this will drop on April 19th, for just twenty bucks! Sure, some people might say “20 bucks for a few ROMs of old NES games? That sounds stupid!” But these are the same people who bought Super Mario All-Stars and didn’t complain even a little bit! I absolutely cannot wait for this, and look forward to streaming some of these on Bottom Tier when it does launch! I’m genuinely shocked it’s not coming out on the Switch though. Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to launch some nostalgia onto the Nintendo console? Just a thought, guys. . .
But Capcom’s not new to bringing out collections of their classic games either; I mean, look at the Megaman collection! There’s been more than one of those, frankly. These aren’t being touched up or updated visually at all, which is fine. I enjoyed the look and feel of these when they came out, and we have even recently started doing a recording of Darkwing Duck over on the Bottom Tier channel, which you can see the first episode of here!
