Super Lion King is the Famicom/NES port of Disney's The Lion King, originally made by Westwood for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, created by Super Game and published by Sugar Softec at an unknown date. It's also known to be Super Game's first port.
This bootleg port is widely considered to be more accurate and faithful to the original Mega Drive/Genesis game, compared to the official port developed by Dark Technologies and published by Virgin, despite that version including The Stampede, The Elephant Graveyard, and Exile levels not available in Super Lion King. In turn, though, the bootleg does include the levels after Hakuna Matata as opposed to Dark Technologies's version.
Two versions of this game exist; the full one retains the Bug Toss bonus stage (and shows the "Super Game" splash screen a bit longer), while the mapper 4 version (more widespread and more popular on the newest pirate reproduction carts) doesn't.
- There's an extra Super Game logo hidden inside the graphics of the ROM, which is emblazoned with "K64." It's unknown what "K64" means, but is speculated to stand for "King 64".
