When I was little, I used to love Disney's games. I remember playing Aladdin, Hercules, and The Lion King. All three of them were challenging platformers which featured a lot of frustrating stages. It's maybe been almost two decades since I've played Aladdin and The Lion King, but it looks like that's about to change quite soon. Today, Disney announced that it was bringing Aladdin and The Lion King to Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
On October 29, the 16-bit games, complete with new features and enhancements, will be released on the platforms. According to the company, Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will include the fan-favorite versions of each original title, featuring upscaled visuals to support high-definition displays and additional upgrades to enhance playability with a controller.
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. Both of these games are quite challenging so you'll be able to instantly save, rewind, select levels, trigger god mode, or enable infinite lives if you're having problems. There's also an Interactive Game Viewer in there that enables you to view full playthroughs, with the ability to skip forward and start playing at any point.
