A remaster collection including the 1993-released Aladdin game and 1994-released The Lion King game, both originally developed by Virgin Interactive for Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis, will be available to pre-order for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch starting August 28 at GameStop and launch this fall, the retailer announced during a presentation at the 2019 GME Conference.
News of the announcement first surfaced via Twitter user @wolverinefactor, and was followed up by GameXplain with an off-screen image. A separate source has corroborated and supplied additional information to Gematsu.
Both Aladdin and The Lion King are reportedly playable in original and 1080p resolutions, and include their original soundtracks. New features include the ability to fast-forward and rewind to jump to any part of the game, as well as have the game itself take over to show the player how to clear the stage.
As this news was presented at the 2019 GME Conference, which is a GameStop exhibition, it is currently unknown whether the collection is also planned for PC. However, given that it will be available on all consoles, it will likely also be available on PC.
