The 30th anniversary of Jurassic Park is being celebrated in style.
Jurassic Park is celebrating its 30th this yeare birthday. To celebrate, the franchise returns to consoles in all its retro glory! In April, the Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection was announced for the Nintendo Switch, among others. Limited Run Games also recently announced a release date: the collection will be available from November 22, 2023.
In the meantime, they have of course not been idle, and a lot is already known about the content of this retro bundle. What you want to know first is of course which games are represented. This concerns the following titles:
– Jurassic Park 8-BIT
– Jurassic Park PORTABLE
– Jurassic Park 16-BIT
– Jurassic Park GENESIS
– Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues 16-BIT
– Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues PORTABLE
– Jurassic Park: Rampage Edition GENESIS
With no fewer than 7 titles, all from the 8-bit and 16-bit era, you won’t get tired of it anytime soon. The collection was initially going to consist of fewer games, but after feedback from fans, the SEGA Genesis titles have also been added. These can rightly be called old games, but fortunately several new features have been introduced that make them fun to play in 2023. In addition, brand new maps provide even more fun and thanks to save states you don’t have to worry about losing your progress.

In each of these games you explore the infamous Isla Nublar. Sometimes you play as Dr. Alan Grant, sometimes as a velociraptor. As you try to survive on this dangerous, prehistoric island, you collect eggs, provide power and find weapons to defend yourself. The end goal: escape, of course! However, the island’s hungry residents won’t make it easy for you…
At the end of this month you can experience it yourself. The collection will be available on the eShop, but several physical releases are also in the pipeline. In addition to the standard edition, various special editions are coming onto the market, all with their own extras (and price range). These are not limited to the Switch – some editions go full retro and are for the NES, SNES or Game Boy. Enthusiasts can pre-order the collection on the Limited Run Games website. Be quick, because this is only possible until November 12.
