There was nothing quite like racing home from school as a kid to watch the Afternoon line-up of shows. You’d grab a juice box, make sure your mom cut the crust off your PB&J, and watch for two continuous hours as Ducktales, Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers, Talespin, and Darkwing Duck (along with many others) transported you to a world of wonder. And when the shows weren’t airing, we took to our Nintendos and played the classic 8-bit games associated with our favorite Disney shows.

As with all good things, the Disney Afternoon line-up had to come to an end, and us ‘90s kids moved on begrudgingly. But the joy of the shows never left us, and over the past decade we have all become quite nostalgic for our childhood. But now we can relive our childhoods, or introduce our own children to them. Disney and Capcom have heard our constant whining, and decided to bring back the games of the Disney Afternoon line-up in a glorious bundle pack.

The Disney Afternoon Bundle Announcement

released an official announcement video detailing the six games included in the new bundle-pack, along with new features and exclusive content. Capcom also released this official synopsis along with the video:

"Get ready to ride the wave of nostalgia with beloved Capcom Disney games from the '90s in a perfect mix of 8-bit platforming goodness, your favorite Disney characters, and hella extras, coming April 18 to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4."

This is a great for fans of the original shows and games, and with an April 18th release date, it's just around the corner. The bundle will run you $19.99, which is the standard price for a retro bundle, and you will get Ducktales 1 & 2, Talespin, Chip 'n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers 1 & 2, and Darkwing Duck in all their 8-bit glory.

All six games have all been upscaled to 1080p, along with the new features that weren’t available on the original versions. Capcom has added "Boss Rush" and "Time Attack" modes for the bundle – for those gamers that want to skip to specific levels. They have also included a “rewind” function, for people who are not used to the 8-bit platform games of old. This feature gives users a fighting chance, and ensures that gamers wont chuck their controller across the room when they get frustrated (speaking from personal experience).

If the games alone aren’t enough to get you excited, Capcom has also included a “Museum Mode” that will allow you to look at concept art and storyboards for the games. This is a hell of a deal for under $20, and for us ‘90s kids, it’s almost too good a deal to pass up! The Disney Afternoon Collection will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on April 18, 2017.
