Since its inception, Disney has been a mainstay of the video game business, with the media conglomerate utilizing its vast library of brands to produce a diverse range of games. Disney has its hands on some of the most successful gaming titles between its brands and partnerships like Square-renowned Enix’s Kingdom Hearts trilogy. Disney’s diverse array of iconic characters has spawned a slew of interesting games over the years, and one of their most recent releases will be updated later this year.
Disney Magical World 2 was initially published on the Nintendo 3DS in October of 2016. Bandai Namco’s life simulation game allows users to engage with and play mini-games with renowned Disney characters. In the game’s original release, players may explore worlds from iconic Disney titles, including The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, and Frozen, among others. Nintendo officially confirmed that the game would be getting an upgraded edition for the Nintendo Switch at a recent Nintendo Direct.
During Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, Bandai Namco and Nintendo formally confirmed that Disney Magical World 2: Enhanced Edition will be arriving to the Switch later this year. Several distinct worlds based on iconic Disney brands like Lilo & Stitch and Beauty and the Beast were seen in the teaser.
Players will be able to personalize their clothes, with many of them based on the game’s brands, as well as create their in-game homes. The clip also revealed that the Enchanted Edition would include every DLC released for the original game.
Disney properties have long been a gaming staple, with iconic titles like Aladdin and The Lion King on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) among the console’s most successful titles. In the case of Kingdom Hearts III, the business generally licenses out their franchises for usage by other developers. Disney’s purchase of large media conglomerates such as LucasArts and Marvel has given the company access to even more renowned gaming brands.
In recent years, Disney has expanded its activities into numerous new outlets in order to promote its renowned brands. Marvel continued to dominate the box office with popular films like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Black Widow. At the same time, Disney+, the corporation’s dedicated streaming service, was a significant success for the firm.
The range of material available under the Disney banner appears to be growing by the year. Still, titles like Disney Magical World 2 demonstrate that the business remains committed to its cartoon heritage.
