My impulse buy of the day: The Lion King / Aladdin Retro Edition for Nintendo Switch

I just need to gush a little bit about how much I love this thing. I don't think I've ever walked into a store and impulse bought something so quickly as I did when I discovered the existence of this edition of the game. A bit pricy at $49.99 but I am a die-hard Sega Genesis fan so when I saw that this edition of the game comes in a bona-fide Sega Genesis clamshell case, I had to grab it. What an incredibly well-done edition of the game. It has a full color double manual for both games, a poster, and a foam insert that holds the cartridge. The case is even textured the same as the originals! I am very impressed by the quality. What's more, there also exists an SNES box-styled edition of this compilation (which I was also admittedly very tempted to buy, but I figured there's no sense in owning both copies, especially when I originally experienced both games on the Genesis :P)

Anyone else pick one of these up? Super pleased with it as a neat little collectible.

I just impulse bought it on the eshop. Always wanted to play the two games. Didn’t realize there were nifty collectible physical editions with special boxes.

I just remember The Lion King having some true nonsense stages that were basically designed to prevent kids from beating the game on a rental. Did they change anything in this new release?

Yeah, I don’t get the point of the collection without the SNES version of Aladdin. That would have been the only game in the collection I actually had nostalgia for.
