Digital Eclipse will be restoring and Nighthawk Interactive will be publishing Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King.
This compilation will include the Game Boy/Super Game Boy, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Super NES versions of Aladdin and The Lion King. It will arrive on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Fall 2019. This announcement began as a Gamescom leak, with the news being compiled and assessed by Eurogamer.
There are some things you should be aware of about the games on display here. Capcom created the Super NES version of Aladdin and Virgin Games made the Genesis one, with the Game Boy and NES versions based on the Genesis one. Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will not include the Super NES version of Aladdin. However, it will have the Game Boy, NES, Super NES, and Genesis versions of The Lion King, which were all handled by Virgin.
Aladdin and The Lion King will include a number of features people common to Digital Eclipse collections. You will be able to select and use cheat codes, rewind in case you make a mistake, or watch the games being played in the Interactive Game Viewer. It will have a museum with a gallery showing concept art, music player, and section looking at interviews with the creators. Also, Aladdin will have its tradeshow demo and final cut present. All of this is in addition to slightly improved graphics, of course.
Once more, Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Fall 2019. I’ve held off on referencing it until now, but as you may know, there have been… heated debates about whether the Genesis or Super NES versions of Aladdin are better. The time is nigh for those to return (and for Capcom loyalists to bust out the emulators, I guess), so if you have any history with these games and their different versions, sound off in the comments below.
