Mickey Mouse platforming on ABC building blocks

Sega has announced an HD reimagining of the Sega Genesis platformer Castle of Illusion, featuring Mickey Mouse. The upcoming digital release will be a 2D/3D hybrid developed by Sega Studios Australia.

“Our plan is to deliver a fully reimagined experience that takes advantage of the power of PS3 with all new graphics and new adventures, while at the same time making sure that the game maintains the Disney magic that the original Castle of Illusion captured in 1990.” says Sr Digital Brand Manager Mai Kawaguchi on the EU PlayStation Blog, “We have also been working very closely with the director of the original game, who is now at Disney Interactive…  If you have played the original game, you will also see that we have kept intact many of the major iconic elements of the game that helped define this groundbreaking game at the time of its original release.”

Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse will be available worldwide for digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360, PlayStation Network and Windows PC via Steam in summer 2013.
