Disney and Nighthawk Interactive revealed today that Disney Classic Games: Aladdin & The Lion King is getting a physical edition on the Switch. As you can see from the image art here, they made this up to look like the old-school cartridge boxes you used to see in stores. Inside you get a cartridge version, as well as an exclusive game poster and color game manual. You can get them in two versions, a clamshell version for Genesis fans, or a box version for SNES players. This edition is only available at Best Buy for $50 if you’re looking to buy it.
