Disney: collection of 90's classic games coming soon


After the collection of Doom for Nintendo Switch was leaked today, it seems that other online video game sites have listed titles not yet announced, including a collection of classic Disney titles that includes Aladdin platformers, The Lion King and the Jungle Book called Disney Classic Games Collection.

At the moment there is only a description on the website of the ESRB, the Entertainment Software Rating Board that manages the ratings of video games for consumption, an organization parallel to ours European PEGI that organizes videogame titles based on the content and age groups for which they are intended. Below is the translation of the summary intended for families.

“This is a collection of classic platformers based on the Disney films of Aladdin, The Lion King and The Jungle Book. Players run and jump through levels, using swords, fruit, or swipe-and-pounce attacks to hit enemies (e.g. guards, birds, snakes, monkeys). The combat is highlighted by the sounds of sword strikes and cries of pain; enemies disappear amid puffs of smoke when defeated. Some enemies and bosses shoot bullets (for example, arrows) at the player's character “.

The Disney collection is set to arrive on Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PS4. Judging from the description of the ESRB, it looks like the Disney platform video games that Virgin Interactive released during the 90s and that underwent several adaptations over time. Already in 2019 a similar and remastered collection had been released but did not contain the Jungle Book, by the same software house that would have listed the current collection: Nighthawk Interactive. We don't know if the current collection brings the three original titles or some remastered form to today's consoles, but as the description has now appeared on ESRB we hope to have an official announcement soon. In the meantime, we remind you that in the coming months at the MUDEC in Milan there will be an exhibition dedicated to Disney classics.

  • Disneyland and Walt Disney World have decided that customers will need to pay extra to skip lines for rides.

    The California and Florida-based entertainment parks said Wednesday that they will retire the FastPass perk, which previously allowed park goers to skip lines for free.

    Customers who want to skip lines will now need to pay $15 extra per ticket per day at Walt Disney World Resort and $20 extra per ticket per day at Disneyland Resort to access the new Disney Genie+ service.

    The new Disney Genie service is built into the Disney mobile experience apps and aims to create personalized itineraries for customers, allow them to join virtual lines, and make restaurant reservations. Through the Disney Genie+ service, customers pay extra to skip lines by accessing rides through Lightning Lane entrances.

    Disney's amusement parks across the world were hard hit during the pandemic after being closed for months on end and then reopening at reduced capacity. The company's parks business has not yet returned to profitability, according to its most recent earnings results.

    Josh D'Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, told The New York Times that the Disney Genie tool would pull in revenue that could be reinvested in experiences. It's also designed to improve the customer experience, he said.

    Still, some customers will likely find the extra charge hard to swallow after years of being able to skip lines for free.

    'Change is change, so it will take a moment for the guest to understand what this is,' D'Amaro said. 'But we are very, very confident in this tool and its ability to improve the guest experience overall.'

    Disneyland Paris also abandoned the free FastPass perk last month.
