Disney’s range of movie tie-in video games from the 1990s are getting a re-release on current consoles with the Disney Classic Games Collection.
The collection is a physical and digital release and includes the games for The Jungle Book, The Lion King, and Aladdin. These games are held with particular esteem and affection for school-aged 90s console gamers, and all are platform games based on the corresponding movies. Challenging but fun, these games are overdue a re-release of this scale.
Featuring multiple versions of the games for the various consoles they were released on, the listing looks like this:
- Disney’s Aladdin: SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Sega MegaDrive
- Disney’s Aladdin – Final Cut: Sega Mega Drive
- Disney’s Aladdin – Demo Version: Sega Mega Drive
- Disney’s Aladdin – Japanese Version: Sega Mega Drive
- Disney The Lion King: SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Sega MegaDrive
- Disney The Lion King – Japanese Version: Sega Mega Drive
- Disney The Jungle Book: SNES, Game Boy, Sega Mega Drive
It is worth nothing that both versions of Aladdin are including, which are basically completely different gmes.
Disney Classic Games Collection is the latest and greatest compilation of classic Disney games based on some of the most beloved Disney movies of all time: Aladdin, The Lion King, and now, The Jungle Book! Now you can play ALL of the critically acclaimed 16-Bit console versions of “Aladdin”, along with classic games based on Disney’s “The Jungle Book”! These all-new, fan requested, and beloved games complete this collection!
Upscaled for HD TVs, with adjustable screen aspect rations and borters, the games feature custom filters for replicating classic CRT screens and other displays. As is expected with modern remasters of classic games, the Disney Classic Games Collection lets you rewind games to retry difficult areas, watch full game playthroughs with the option to join the action at any point, and save your game wherever you need to. The release also features video interviews with the original development teams, and explore galleries of unreleased concept images and marketing assets associated with Aladdin, The Jungle Book, and The Lion King games.
Finally, you can even listen to entire soundtracks for the games using the built-in music players, including 16-bit versions of classic songs like “A Whole New World”, “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King”, and “The Bare Necessities”!
The Disney Classic Games Collection is just £29.99 and can be pre-ordered for consoles ahead of its December release.
