Post by ALK » Tue Aug 27, 2019 9:43 pm

Coming to Switch, XBONE and PS4 physically.

Maybe I finally beat Lion King once and for all. Hey, not my fault I had no idea how to throw Scar off the damn rock. Least I got that far. :lol:

This feels like something they could very easily screw up.

On the other hand, the remastered Mickey game from a few years back worked well.

Apparently its by the same guys that did The Disney Afternoon collection, so it probably will be just fine.

Trailer. Includes your typical features (Screen options, rewind, etc.), Gameboy, SNES and MD versions (No Capcom's Aladdin) and a trade show version of Aladdin, and other extras.

I like the Watch Mode idea, including a playthrough you can jump into. Has that been done before in a commercial game?

Even though I have Aladdin on the Mega Drive, And Lion King on the SNES I really want this!

But I don't think it's gonna go cheaper than the $50 it's on sale for now sadly...which is two expensive in my mind.

On the now defunct twice now ol' Aussie XBOX Forum I put together some pictures of this game collection, hopefully the imgur link I used is in my history on the other laptop I use and if it is I will post that picture here soon. :D

Seen it on the online stores go for about £16-20 for the digital version. Might be awhile before the physical version seems a similar if not lower drop.

Bought my physical copy on PS4 for £25.99 on launch... while the digital version may come down in price in the future, if you want the physical I'd hunt one down now if you can. I imagine it's one of those titles that will disappear completely and just become a digital only title.

It's a great little collection with a fun trophy/achievement list and they've included the best versions of each game (although I would love to have had the SNES version of Aladdin).

Oh - it's not the SNES Aladdin on there then? The reason I avoided it was because I thought it wasn't the Megadrive one. :lol:

To be honest I was irritated they're charging so much for a couple of roms on a disc in the first place, when it was first announced I assumed they'd be HD remasters, but no...

Mega Drive, Gameboy and Super Game Boy for Aladdin, along with the Trade Show demo and a "Final Cut".

Lion King however had Mega Drive, SNES and Gameboy.

Yes I imagine it will become a rare disc title, so I should get it sooner rather than never!!!
