- Go old school with Capcom this weekend, as they bring their Disney Afternoon Collection to WonderCon. You’ll get to play two of the upcoming games from that collection, including the original 8-bit DuckTales or Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers – and you’ll even get to walk away with a slap bracelet. I mean, come on. You can also play games like Ulta Street Fighter II on Nintendo Switch, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Street Fighter V – as well as Resident Evil 7 biohazard. For Resident Evil, if you’re the top score each day, you’ll walk away with a Collector’s Edition of the game. They’ll also have merch and more available at Booth #1137.
