Castle of Illusion Remake | Power Up Gaming
Several weeks ago a short teaser trailer found its way online but failed to tell the world what it was teasing. There was alot of speculation with the witch, the toy soldiers and the spooky castle that this may be a remake of Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse (left video). Well the speculation can end now as an official trailer was released earlier this week that confirmed that this is just that. It's set for a Summer 2013 release for PS3, XBOX 360 and PC (right video). Known in Japan as I Love Mickey Mouse: Great Mysterious Castle Adventure, Castle of Illusion was a platform game released November 22, 1990 on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. An 8-bit game based on the Sega version was released for the Master System in 1990, followed by the Game Gear in 1991 which was known as Mickey Mouse's Castle Illusion. The remake will be a combination of both 2D and 3D and is being developed by Sega Studios Australia who are working very closely with the game director from the original 1990
