Capcom is back with a bang. The launch of Disney classic collection that was previously rumoured has now been confirmed and very soon gaming lovers can enjoy them in their consoles.
The game is titled as Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King, the compilation will feature the 16-bit classic games that are based on two of Disney’s biggest blockbusters of 90’s. Both the movies and the games are indeed very close to the kids who grew during that period and this is also considered as some of the best platformers of the 16-bit generation.
However, this is not only about two classic games and Capcom’s new collection will also feature different exciting versions of each property. Let’s have a look on what the game includes-
- Disney’s Aladdin – Game Boy/Super Game Boy
- Disney’s Aladdin Trade Show Demo
- Disney’s Aladdin – SEGA Genesis
- Disney’s Aladdin Final Cut
- The Lion King – Super Nintendo
- The Lion King – SEGA Genesis
- The Lion King – Game Boy/Super Game Boy
However, there is a lot of unpack here. Disney’s Aladdin is getting some interesting versions of the game that includes the unreleased demo version that was only available through game expos in the 1993. The most interesting part is the presence of a “Final Cut” version of Aladdin and Capcom has not yet provided any details of it. Maybe, it is due to some added levels or the Genesis version that has helped to made it into the original.
It’s really thrilling to see that the super game version will be included while both The Lion King and the Aladdin version will have their game Boy Versions available. Those who are not aware of the super game Boy of being an add-on for the Super Nintendo that allowed gaming enthusiasts to play their gameboy cartridges on the TV, that included various color palates to give add some actual colour to the monochrome versions.
However, the fans of these games will observe that the Super Nintendo version of Disney’s Aladdin is considerably missing. The SNES version is an entirely different version rather than just a vaguely version like with The Lion King. The SNES version was designed by Shinji Mikami, who is the creator of The Resident Evil Franchise. There is no information regarding why this version is not being included. Apart from this many gaming lovers will probably declare the Genesis version better in comparison to the other two games.
There are many extra features and each game will feature excellent graphics and different filters that will allow enjoying the game in whatever feature you prefer. The game will also highlight a “rewind” feature and customizable controls, something that has become mandatory in almost all modern collection of classic games.
There are some cool bonuses that the 90’s Kids Rejoice, Aladdin and the Lion King Are Released on Consoles that will include a gallery filled with art and music. There is also a ‘museum’ mode that enables you to view the ‘behind-the-scenes development assets, that includes interviews. The throw in an Interactive Game Viewer allows you to watch a play throughout of the whole game and jump in at any time.
Till now, the exact release date for this long-awaited classic video game collection has not been declared. But if it is to believe what Capcom say, fans can expect the collection in their consoles sometime in the fall. Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch just for $29.99.
