You’ve gotta love the classics, and that is no more true than the Disney classics. Today Disney are hitting back into the gaming scene with details surrounding the digital and retail launch of Aladdin and The Lion King on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Coming to console and PC in the Fall 2019, Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will allow fans to relive the magic of the 16-bit era, just with a modern day twist, and new features and enhancements bringing things up-to-date.
They will include the fan-favourite versions of each original title, featuring upscaled graphics to support high definition displays and additional upgrades to enhance playability on current consoles. The collection also includes a brand-new “final cut” of Aladdin and an original Aladdin “tradeshow demo” that has not been publicly available since 1993.
Fan or not, you will be able to revisit these beloved games in order to take advantage of a variety of modern support options. This means the ability to utilise instant save states, make the most of a “Rewind” button to jump back up to 15 seconds, choose your level, add in invulnerability or infinite lives, and enjoy an “Interactive Game Viewer.” which will enable players to view full game playthroughs, with the ability to skip forward, jump in, and start playing at any point.
But further to that, the Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King features include:
● Authentic Game Content with Modern Improvements – Fans old and new can enjoy the original game builds, upscaled graphics, customizable controls, special filters for visual enhancement and more.
● Variety of Game Versions – The collection includes multiple playable platform versions of the games including their Sega Genesis, Game Boy and Super Game Boy releases, as well as The Lion King Super Nintendo Entertainment System version.
● A Helping Hand – Players who want to experience the Disney magic in true “Hakuna Matata” fashion can use the Interactive Game Viewer, Rewind feature and cheat codes to aid gameplay progression.
● Curated, Explorable Museum – A treasure trove of behind-the-scenes development assets including interviews, an art gallery and a music player shares the rich history behind the Aladdin and The Lion King 16-bit games.
Updated lovingly by the publisher Nighthawk Interactive and development studio Digital Eclipse, the Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King will be available come October 29th 2019 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Physical copies will also be available.
