Disney and Sega jointly announced this morning that the classic 90s title Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, will be remade this summer as a digital download for Xbox Live, PC and the PlayStation Network.
“The original Castle of Illusion was tremendously entertaining and has a well-deserved reputation as a Sega classic. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse brings this great game to a new generation,” said Chris Olson, vice president of Digital Business at Sega of America. “Mickey is back and he looks fantastic.”
In Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, which came out in 1990 for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, gamers were presented with a cool soundtrack, solid controls and a pleasing art-style, while this new re-imagining will feature new visuals and added gameplay mechanics.
Sega didn’t mention if the game would see a digital version on the Wii U, but one would think if the demand was there, that a port could be done quite easily, so we’ll cross our fingers for it.
