Soon you’ll be able to play classic Disney games on existing hardware. The Walt Disney Company unveiled a collection of titles based on Aladdin and The Lion King. Only two games are included, but there are multiple versions within Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King to dive into and compare.

The trailer showcases a few modifications and additions. Aside from remastering the graphics to exist in 1080p, there’s Watch Mode to skip to any part of a game and Rewind to correct any mistakes. Disney also tossed in a digital museum that takes you behind the scenes.

Of course, there’s also full access to soundtracks. So you can listen to “A Whole New World” as it was meant to be heard on the SEGA Genesis and Game Boy more than two decades ago.

Here are the games included in this collection:

  • Disney’s Aladdin (SEGA Genesis version)
  • Disney’s Aladdin (Game Boy version)
  • Disney’s Aladdin Final Cut (unexplained version)
  • Disney’s Aladdin Trade Show Demo (not publicly available since 1993)
  • The Lion King (SEGA Genesis version)
  • The Lion King (Super Nintendo version)
  • The Lion King (Game Boy Version)

In total, you’re getting four versions of Disney’s Aladdin and three versions of The Lion King. All of them were released in 1993/1994 after their respective films premiered.

Disney hasn’t shared an exact release date, but we do know the entire collection will be released this fall. It’ll cost $29 and be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Given the name Disney Classic Games, expect similar collections from popular franchises to be rolled out in the future.
