Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King Switch release

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King is the official name for the HD remasters of the two games leaked yesterday at a GameStop Managers Conference. It will release on Oct. 29 physically for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The announcement video reveals a buttload of extra features that seem to make this quite a value.

Here is a quick rundown of special features Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King has to offer:

  • Play in 1080P, along with screen filters and other display options
  • Classic soundtracks to listen to in a menu
  • Watch Mode: Apparently you can skip to any part of a game if you have a favorite part or if a given section is just too hard to play yourself.
  • Rewind: If you screw up, you can instantly undo it.
  • Museum: You can look at classic behind-the-scenes art and video.

As for the actual list of games you get to play in the game, even that is surprising and impressive (per IGN):

  • Disney’s Aladdin – Sega Genesis
  • Disney’s Aladdin – Game Boy (includes Super Game Boy version)
  • Disney’s Aladdin Final Cut – It is unknown what exactly this is.
  • Disney’s Aladdin Trade Show Demo – This is a version of the game only used at a trade show, apparently not seen since 1993.
  • The Lion King – Sega Genesis
  • The Lion King – Super Nintendo
  • The Lion King – Game Boy (includes Super Game Boy version)

So, yeah, like I said — surprising and impressive! Let us know how you’re feeling about Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King now that its awesome hand of cards is fully spread on the table. The game will retail for $29.99, and it is currently available for preorder at Best Buy.
