Disney Classics Games Collection Featured Ecran Partage

We no longer present Disney, one of the most famous multinational entertainment companies in the world. Naturally, the characters and universes have had multiple incarnations in video games in all eras. Therefore:

Which Disney game to choose on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 5 and 4, Xbox One and Series, and PC?

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King

Compilation of old Aladdin and Lion King games released on GameBoy, Genesis (Mega Drive), Super Nintendo, Game Gear. This is an outdated version of the compilation. Prefer the version below.

Disney Dreamlight Valley

A game where you create your human character and interact with many Disney characters in order to maintain and develop a village. Very inspired by Animal Crossing New Horizons .

Playable with 1 player.

More information in our detailed article.

Disney Illusion Island

A playable platform game from 1 to 4 players where the characters Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy go back and forth in various environments in order to unlock skills and access new areas (yes I just tried to describe “metroidvania”). To recover health points, characters can hug their friendly characters.

Available on Nintendo Switch.

Playable from 1 to 4 players.

Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition)

It used to be a 3D action/adventure game with Disney and Marvel characters that you could unlock by buying physical action figures in stores and placing them on an electronic portal that you plugged into your console. There was also a Toybox/Toy Box mode where players could build their own games/level inside. The game was not as successful as the publisher had hoped for and was cancelled and removed from digital platforms on console. It is available on Steam only in a version where everything is unlocked.

But don’t waste your time with this game, it is entertaining but not fantastic and there are quite enough interesting Disney games.

Available on Steam PC.

Playable with 1 player.

Disney Magical World 2: Enchanted Edition

It is an improved version of the game of the same name released for Nintendo 3DS. The player must complete a number of conditions and tasks via mini-games in order to progress through the magical world of Disney. Everything is an excuse to talk to the characters of the brand and enjoy their universes. However the game seems to be quite average according to the reviews.

Available on Nintendo Switch

Playable with 1 player.

Disney Speedstorm

A racing game with Disney characters. However, all content is very expensive and monetization is very aggressive. You have to accumulate a lot of virtual currencies to unlock the content, or pay dearly. The tracks of the circuits are not interesting either. Avoid.

Available on Steam PC, Epic Games Store PC, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series

Playable from 1 to 2 players locally and up to 8 players online.

Disney TSUM TSUM FESTIVAL

It is a collection of playable mini-games from 1 to 4 players featuring Disney characters with a cylindrical design. This takes on the appearance of toys released in Japan. There are a lot of mini-games and game modes, but not all of them are necessarily fun. The game is better when played with 4 people on the same console on a few mini-games. Unless you’re a big Disney fan and find the game at a low price, you can go your way.

Available on Nintendo Switch.

Playable from 1 to 4 players locally, and from 2 to 4 players online.

The Disney Afternoon Collection

A compilation of the following old retro games from Capcom released on NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) in the 90s:

  • Talespin (“Super Baloo” in France, “Looping” in Quebec, Switzerland, Belgium)
  • Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers (Tic et Tac Rangers du Risque)
  • Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2
  • Duck Tales (The Spike Gang)
  • Duck Tales 2
  • Darkwing Duck (Myster Mask)

The compilation is excellent and has many functions: a museum mode with images, soundtracks, the ability to see the games played by experts. A delight, just a shame that it is not available on Nintendo Switch.

Available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam PC.

Playable with 1 player.

Playable with 2 players for the 2 episodes of Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers only.

Disney•Pixar Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!

A 3D adventure game set in the Toy Story 2 universe. This is the Playstation 1 version and is now available on Playstation 4 and 5. To be reserved for the nostalgic only.

Playable with 1 player.

Disney•Pixar Toy Story 3

A 3D adventure game set in the Toy Story 3 universe. This is the Playstation 1 version and is now available on Playstation 4 and 5. To be reserved for the nostalgic only.

Playable with 1 player.

Which Disney game to choose on Nintendo Switch, Playstation, Xbox and PC?

For the nostalgic, the 2 compilations of old games are excellent and very well done: Disney Classic Games Collection and The Disney Afternoon Collection . They can also be useful to teach the history of the video game and show the progress that the medium has made.

If you want a recent and quiet game that invites you to take care of its environment, Disney Dreamlight Valley is for you. Be careful about monetizing it though.

For family play, Disney Illusion Island is well suited.
