Retro Aladdin, Lion King games coming back in $100 cartridges


Classic Disney games Aladdin and The Lion King are becoming re-released on contemporary consoles on Oct. 29 — but publisher Nighthawk Interactive is providing a version you can play on the original platforms, also.

Nighthawk Interactive has partnered with production corporation iam8bit to sell retro versions of Aladdin and The Lion King with retro packaging for Nintendo Switch. But Genesis and SNES fans can acquire $99 cartridges for each and every title, also. The Retro Retail editions and Legacy Cartridges are offered for pre-order on Oct. 24 — the retro editions will ship on Dec. 10 for $49.99 with the Legacy Cartridges coming in early 2020 for $99.99.

Each games are anticipated to have “upscaled graphics to assistance higher definition displays and further upgrades to boost playability” on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation four, Windows Computer, and Xbox One particular. The Retro Editions are offered only for the Switch version of each and every game, although, in new various selections: Clamshell Style (Genesis) and Boxed with Tray (SNES). Each and every comes with a retro-style manual and an exclusive fold-out poster.

Only four,500 Legacy Cartridges each and every for Aladdin and The Lion King are offered. Each and every has restored artwork, a playable cartridge, and “retro pack-in surprises.” Here’s what’s additional cool: each and every is primarily a “blind box” with regard to the cartridge inside — most people today will get a typical a single, but a single out of eight people today will get ultra restricted ones, glow-in-the-dark purple for Aladdin and glow-in-the-dark yellow for The Lion King.

Neither iam8bit nor Nighthawk Interactive can “guarantee which version you will acquire,” it mentioned in a press release. “It really is entirely random.”

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King, a bundled version of the games, will be offered on Oct. 29 for $29.99.
