Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck spoofs almost appeared in Shin Megami Tensei

Don't mess with Disney

All the way back in 1992, Atlus released Shin Megami Tensei on the Super Famicom. That installment of the series took fans to a theme park called Tokyo Destiny Land, which had the player taking on demented theme park monsters. While there were plenty of baddies to take on, a very specific duo was planned at one point, but yanked before the game released.

As you can see from the sprite art above, Atlus was going to spoof Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck with twisted takes on the classic characters. It seems Atlus had second thoughts about taunting the House of Mouse with these designs, so they did away with them before launching. I'm thinking that was a smart idea!

IGN Video - Aladdin (SNES) Vs Aladdin (Genesis)

The impending release of 'Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King' has ignited the age-old debate: Which version of Aladdin is better, the Virgin-developed genesis version or the Capcom-developed SNES version? Which version is truly "The Ducktails of Aladdin games" (whatever that means)?

Check out more character art for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3's "Curse of the Vampire" DLC

I think Blade can handle this

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 got some new costumes today, but there's even more content coming in the future, including the Curse of the Vampire DLC. The official Japanese hub site for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 has been updated with some individual character art for the DLC, which you can see in the gallery above.

Silly typo spotted on Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King's Switch cover

I feel it in my loins

It's very likely this mistake won't be on the actual cover, but at least we can enjoy it in the promo art. As you can see above, there's a typo in the game's title on the spine, changing it from Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King to Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Loin King. Not the first mistake in a game's cover, and certainly not the last!
