Polygon has the hot scoop in an article entitled Aladdin designer Shinji Mikami on why the Genesis version is better

Shinji Mikami, known for his work on famed games like Resident Evil, Viewtiful Joe, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, has pledged his support for the Genesis:

"If I didn't actually make [the SNES game], I would probably buy the Genesis one," Mikami told Polygon in an interview. "Animation-wise, I think the Genesis version's better. The Genesis version had a sword, actually. I wanted to have a sword."

Blast Processing > Mode 7 any day of the week. (I agree with Jeff, and think the music is better on the Genesis too.) Sorry if this is a flame post.

@billymaysrip: This isn't exactly a new or controversial viewpoint.

I thought everyone thought those Genesis Disney games were better than the SNES ones?

Also, I'm a SNES guy.

Also, OP you do realize Blast Processing isn't a real thing...just a marketing buzz word. Mode 7 was an actual graphics mode built into the snes that allowed rotation and scaling of a background layer.

This just in: Shinji Mikami says a fact. More at 11.

Wouldn't anyone who played both versions have that same opinion?

I didn't know anyone with a snes when I was growing up, everyone had a genesis and I was the weirdo with a TG16.

I honestly don't think I've ever even held a snes controller in my hands before.

Exactly. Was this ever in doubt by the way? I always thought is was a consensus among the gaming community (fanboys excluded) the genesis version was a better game overall.

Don't know why de OP made this a Blast Processing x Mode 7 though...

I've never played the Genesis version but the SNES version was a pretty good game.

Ya I saw this article on Polygon earlier

I agree with him. I still have that game, too. Good game. I didn't like the SNES version as much, but you know everyone has their tastes based on life experiences.
