Sega and Disney have banded together to bring us a HD remake of Castle of Illusion, the classic side scrolling game for the Genesis.
The HD remake will be released this summer (although no specific release date yet) on XBLA, PSN and of course, PC. The game is being described as “a complete re-imagining” of the 1990 Mega Drive/Genesis classic. It will feature the original storyline though, of Mickey trying to save Minnie from the evil witch Mizrabel but will be bringing new gameplay mechanics to the table as well as completely redone HD graphics.
Chris Olson, Sega of America’s vice president of digital business, said this – “The original Castle of Illusion was tremendously entertaining and has a well-deserved reputation as a Sega classic. Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse brings this great game to a new generation. Mickey is back and he looks fantastic.”
