Disney’s Classic Lion King and Aladdin Sega Genesis Games are Getting Remastered

The SNES version of Aladdin will not be included :(

Remember how awesome Aladdin was on Sega Genesis? Remember how hard The Lion King was? Well remember no more! Both games are coming to modern consoles and PC.

Publisher Nighthawk Interactive and emulation masters Digital Eclipse are releasing Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King, a remastered collection of the iconic Sega Genesis games. Both games will be remastered in 1080p HD with a slew of visual enhancement options and features, such as a rewind and watch mode. Interesting, multiple versions of both games will be included in the collection, the Game Boy/ Super Game Boy ports of Aladdin and The Lion King, technically making this a six game collection.

The collection also includes a museum of concept art and sound test mode so you can jam out to the 16 bit version of I Just Can’t Wait to Be King (I do this everyday regardless).

If you watched the above trailer and noticed Aladdin looked different from what you remember, it’s probably because you played the SNES version of the game. That version, considered by some to be weaker than on Genesis, will not be included in this collection unfortunately, most likely because Capcom developed and published it.

While no Capcom Aladdin is a bummer, we have found memories of these fun, at times way too hard, classic Disney games, so we’re pumped to pick it up.

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King releases on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One this fall for $29.99.
