Castle of Illusions HD Confirmed; Coming to PSN/XBLA/Steam


Sega is working with Disney Interactive on an HD remake of Castle of Illusion featuring you guessed it, Mickey Mouse. It has been confirmed that the game will release sometime this summer on PC, PSN, and XBLA.

Developed by Sega Studios, the title is detailed as “a complete re-imagining” of the Sega Genesis side scrolling game that first released back in 1990. It will feature the original storyline that had gamers poised to help Mickey save Minnie from the evil Witch. Sega has stated that the game has been “completely rebuilt from the ground up with new visuals and fresh gameplay mechanics.”

“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.”

Gamers are rejoicing as it has been 22 years since they have seen this game boot up again, and now, it will look the most up-to-date. For more news on this, stay tuned to GamersXtreme, and as always, “Game On!”


    It looks fantasic! I never played the original because I never had the right console and also that, when the game came out, I wasn’t even born yet until a year and a few months later! Can’t wait to try it out!
