New Disney Classic Games Collection will reportedly include SNES Aladdin and Jungle Book
Upcoming collection adds titles not included in 2019 release
An updated collection of classic Disney games will reportedly include the SNES version of Aladdin and The Jungle Book.
16-bit Disney classics Aladdin and The Lion King were remastered for Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019, including new content and a variety of game versions.
1993’s Aladdin famously had totally different games released on both the major console platforms of the time, including a Genesis/Mega Drive game by Virgin and directed by David Perry (Earthworm Jim), and a SNES version by Capcom and directed by Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil).
The latter was not included in 2019 release Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King, but according to Vooks, it will be present in an updated Disney Classic Games Collection.
So too will the SNES, Game Boy and Sega Mega Drive versions of The Jungle Book.
The Disney Classic Games Collection, which was first outed by the Entertainment Software Rating Board in August, is headed to PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, according to the classification body. It will reportedly include:
- 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’s currently unclear if players who purchased 2019’s Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King will receive access to the SNES version of Aladdin or The Jungle Book.
According to Vooks, Aladdin features difficulty adjustments and camera changes. All titles include 1080p graphics, quick saves, and the ability to rewind gameplay up to 15 seconds or fast forward the game. The collection also includes the full game soundtracks.
