More Disney Classic Games Are On The Way

Virgin Interactive

For some, it was the '90s that was peak gaming. Yes, the '80s saw the birth of icons like Pac-Man, Mario, Zelda, and more, but it was in the '90s that home gaming really came into its own.

For those of a certain age, the decade was also immortalised by riding a magic carpet or swinging off a monkey with Virgin Interactive's adaptations of Aladdin and The Lion King.

These once-forgotten classics found a new lease of like in 2019 - thanks to the Disney Classic Games collection - but some were disappointed the equally lauded version of The Jungle Book didn't make the cut. Thankfully, that's all about to change.

What's the new release of Disney Classic Games?

The Disney Classics took the simple premise of 2D platforming and sprinkled a bit of Tinkerbell's magic dust over them. Although the 2019 release included several versions of 1993's Disney's Aladdin and 1994's The Lion King, players were rightly bummed that 1994's Walt Disney's The Jungle Book was MIA.

For the first time ever, these games were brought to the likes of the Nintendo Switch, but with developer Digital Eclipse seemingly seeing the error of its ways, there's a terrific trilogy on the way. A listing for another collection first appeared on the site for French publisher, Just For Games

The new collection will include Capcom's Super Nintendo Aladdin, The Jungle Book (which has a Super Nintendo, Mega Drive, and Game Boy version), and The Lion King - Super Nintendo version, Mega Drive, and Game Boy/Game Boy Color. We don't know if those who previously bought the collection will get the SNES Aladdin as a free upgrade. 

Is this the end of classic Disney games?

Eurocom

The SNES version of Aladdin was massively different from the other releases, while the addition of The Jungle Book is also a bit pull as well. The collection is set for a November 12 release, meaning it's well-timed for the Christmas season.

Even if this era of Disney games bowed out with the '90s, there were some other classics lost in the shuffle. Virgin Interactive released Pinocchio in 1996, so we're not sure why it's left out again. Elsewhere, other developers worked on similar titles like Probe Entertainment's Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Funcom's Disney's Pocahontas, and Eurocom's Disney's Hercules.

We doubt we'll ever see all those classic '90s Disney games together, but it's a nice idea anyway. Either way, The Jungle Book is expected to get new features like 1080p to dust off this old favourite and bring it to a new generation of fans and retro gamers alike. If you're ready, let's go on a magic carpet ride.
