Think back when you were you were little and you used to play classic licensed games like Disney games on your SNES or Sega Genesis. Here you are an adult and what if I told you that you can play these games again in your modern consoles. It’s been announced yesterday that Disney is planning to release a game collection in which it will have three different game versions of Aladdin and The Lion King including a never before played demo of an Aladdin game; the total games in this collection is seven. This game collection is called Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. According to IGN, here is what we’re getting:
- Disney’s Aladdin (Sega Genesis)
- Disney’s Aladdin (Game Boy)
- Disney’s Aladdin (Final Cut)
- Disney’s Aladdin (Trade Show)
- Disney’s The Lion King (Sega Genesis)
- Disney’s The Lion King (SNES)
- Disney’s The Lion King (Game Boy/Super Game Boy)
Based on the trailer, players will be able to play the game with enhance graphics and the ability to jump into any moment in the game. You will also be able to rewind time in order to correct yourself if you make a mistake while playing. Unfortunately this game, as far as I know, will not have the SNES version of Aladdin. My guess is that this game was once licensed by Capcom and now Capcom doesn’t have the rights for the game anymore. It’s pretty common for Capcom because they usually lose the rights to a game. This happened before with the Ducktales Remastered and Marvel vs Capcom Origins. The SNES Aladdin game was designed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.
This game will be released for a price of $29.99 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. It set to be released in the Fall 2019.
Speaking of Disney, here is a did you know gaming of these Disney games:
If you think Final Fantasy VII is overrated, I am happy to take your mind away from 7 and give you something from 8. It’s previously announced that Square Enix was going to released Final Fantasy VII for multiple platforms for PS4, X1, Switch and PC. The game is going to be titled Final Fantasy VIII Remastered. This game is going to get a huge makeover with a new way of experiencing the magic and fantasy of FFVIII. The graphics are enhanced and just like the updated FFVII, this game will allow you play the game in 3x speed, maxed out stats and even turn off encounters.
Now, revealed in Gamescon 2019, you can get your copy of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on September 3rd, 2019.
PSN describes it:

Batman: Return to Arkham includes the comprehensive versions of both games and includes all previously released additional content.

Use Batman’s legendary gadgetry, strike from the shadows, and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious super villains.

Greeting gamers! This is Matt-in-the-Hat and I am here to give you an update on the anticipated video game Marvel’s Avengers. It was announced last week that Square Enix has teamed up with Marvel Games to create a project video game called Marvel’s Avengers. In this game, players will be able to play as the heroes Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Black Widow. The game will have an original story and players will be able to play online with each other and use the characters. However, in regards to online, there might be a catch. Besides having microtransactions, it is very unlikely that players won’t be able to play online in the story/campaign. According to game news DualShockers, they recently heard from IGN that Marvel’s Avengers story mode will be for solo players. There is no full details yet, but the game will likely have a secondary mode where players can join in and play together and do missions. Still, I will do my best to give you more updates. Marvel Avengers will be released in May 15th, 2020 for PS4, X1, PC and Stadia.

The microtransactions will be available in this game for players who wants to buy and customize the character’s costumes and edit your player cards. There won’t be loot boxes or pay to win features.

You asked and Bandai Namco listened, Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting another season pass with an updated roster of fan favorite characters. A trailer was released during the Red Bull Summoning Tournament of Dragon Ball FighterZ and the trailer revealed that six new DLC characters are planned to join Dragon Ball FighterZ. You can buy the new season pass on January 31st of this year for anyone who has the game for PS4, X1, Switch or PC. The two characters joining the game will be Gohan’s wife and Mr. Satan/Hercule’s daughter Videl. She can utilize amazing combos and also have Gohan’s hero alter ego Great Saiyaman to help her fight along with her. Also being playable is Universe 11 greatest warrior Jiren. Jiren made his appearance in the last arc of Dragon Ball Super during the Tournament of Power. Jiren’s trainning has made him the strongest warrior and his strength is so incredible that he was able to put Goku in a pinch that not even his SSB form wasn’t at his level. These two characters will be added on Jan 31st. But wait there’s more! Revealed as the last two characters to be added, it’s been revealed that Broly and Gogeta from the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be added to the game. There’s no gameplay, but these two will be the last characters added to the game.
So here is the season 2 newly added roster:
- Broly (Dragon Ball Super)
- Gogeta (SSGSS/SSB)
Kingdom Hearts III is getting close and we are less than 2 weeks away from the official release. With the game coming out, get ready to determine where to pre-order the game. Depending where you pre-order, players will be given some exclusive DLC weapons to help players start off the adventure.
If you pre-order any of Kingdom Hearts III for PS4 or Xbox One from Amazon, players will be given the Dawn to Dusk keyblade. The Dawn to Dusk keyblade is a keyblade that increase the fire magic powers and will instantly give players the Firagan situation command.
If you own a PS4 and you plan to pre-order through the Playstation Store, you can get your hands on this blue keyblade called the Midnight Blue. Almost like Dawn to Dusk, this has some powerful magic attacks that is specifically made for blizzard attacks and even triggers the command attack Blizzagan.
Xbox users who pre-orders this game through their store will be given the Phantom Green keyblade. Just like the previous two, this one is focused on thunder based attacks and can perform the Thundagan.
So what you guys think about the keyblades DLC? If you are planing to get this game, which retail are you going to get?
Looks like a fighting game is getting delayed but with a good reason.
The upcoming Koei Tecmo fighting game Dead or Alive 6 will not be released on February 15th. Instead, the game will be released on March 1st. The reason why this game is getting delayed is because according to a tweet made by the game producer, the game is near complete in development, but the game is going to need the extra time to polish the gameplay and game mechanics. The game is set to be released on March 1st, 2019 for PC, PS4 and X1.
