Back in the ’90s, both films received 16-bit video game adaptations for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Sega Genesis, and since everything old is new again, it’s appropriate that both have been reissued in an upgraded form. Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Updated by Digital Eclipse and Nighthawk Interactive, the games feature upscaled graphics for high-definition display and come packed with bonus features, including interviews, an art gallery, and a music player with 16-bit chiptune versions of classic Disney songs.
Each game contains modern flourishes, such as customizable controls, save states, and filters for visual enhancement, in addition to features that were never available the first time around, such as rewind and fast-forward. The set even includes different versions of the games as they appeared on SNES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, and Super Game Boy, and Aladdin comes with a brand new “final cut” version and the original trade show demo that was shown at events back in 1993.
