The remake of the Genesis classic is coming to PSN, PC, and Xbox LIVE on September 3 and 4th from SEGA.
Priced at $14.99/1200 MS Points, “Castle of Illusion” remakes the 1990 game of the same name developed by SEGA for their second home console. The platformer was part of a run of excellent licensed titles put out around that time including “Jurassic Park” and “X-Men,” which took advantage of the 16-bit system’s hardware for then-fluid and vibrant animation (and the game’s happened to be really fun, too).
The remake was developed by SEGA’s Australian studio under the supervision of the original’s director, Emiko Yamamoto, whose got a healthy list of Disney credits including “Kingdom Hearts,” “Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck,” and “Disney’s Tarzan Untamed.”
From SEGA’s synopsis:
With all-new HD graphics and gameplay, Castle of Illusion brings Mickey and his magical world to life. When the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie, it’s up to Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie. Gather your courage and take on hordes of rebellious toys, traverse enchanted forests and navigate mazes of living books.
