DuckTales and DuckTales 2 - As the millionaire Scrooge McDuck, head on a treasure seeking adventure on a pogo stick.

Although well aware of the games The Disney Afternoon Collection brings together, growing up in the United Kingdom means I did not know The Disney Afternoon was a two-hour animated television programming block produced by Walt Disney Television Animation that aired in the States, until just now. For those of us who loved the classic cartoons and may have even picked up the video games at one point or another, Capcom announced today via emailed press release that the Disney Afternoon Collection, a six-game collection containing restored classic Disney games from the 80s and 90s.

TaleSpin - Players take control of Baloo in this shoot 'em up and take to the skies.

As stated earlier, all of the aforementioned games are new and improved as they feature high-definition versions of the originals. Also added is Time Attack, which will have the player try to beat levels as fast as they can, then compare their times to others' on an online leaderboard. A new "Rewind" feature makes these challenging titles more accessible for newcomers, with the option to rewind time and enjoy a swift recovery from blunders. You might want to wait and see how The Disney Afternoon Collection fares with critics before plunking down your $20.

Take the "HD makeover" with a pinch of salt, but they're all going to be brushed-up and bolstered with new features, such as Boss Rush, where you fight bosses one after another, and time attack.

You'll be able to discover for yourself how well these Capcom classics have held up when The Disney Afternoon Collection releases on April 18th.
