Released in 1994, The Jungle Book is, of course, based on the 1967 animated movie of the same name, and found its way to a wide range of systems, including the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, SNES, Game Boy, Game Gear and NES. It was developed by the now-defunct Eurocom and published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment. If this new edition is anything like the original collection, we'll be treated to multiple emulated versions across a few formats.
Rechristened Disney Classic Games Collection, the pack is also coming to Sony and Microsoft platforms, as well as Windows / PC.
When we reviewed the previous iteration of this collection, we said:
Aside from the excellent presentation quality, the years have not been at all kind to these releases, and given the wealth of similar retro content available on the Switch eShop now, it’s tough to recommend that a newcomer pick them up. If you played these games as a kid and want a nice walk down memory lane, this is by far and away the best way you could possibly experience them – and that’s not something to be dismissed out of hand. Bearing that in mind, we’d give this release a light recommendation to those who are willing to shell out some cash for pure nostalgia. If you don’t fall into that camp, you should probably steer clear.
We'd imagine that the same verdict will apply to this updated release, unless you have an unreasonable desire to play The Jungle Book, of course.
