Confirmed: Sega Are Remaking Castle of Illusion

Last weekend we posted a teaser trailer that had us believing (hoping) that Sega were going to answer our demented fan mail and remake the classic Mega Drive game, Castle of Illusion, starring Mickey Mouse. Well, the big teases have finally confirmed that they are working on a HD re-imagining of the game for PSN, XBLA and PC platforms.

Sega Studios Australia are handling development and they are also working with the original game's director. From the screenshots released so far, it seems that they are sticking with 2D gameplay, which is something of a relief. Sega's Senior Digital Brand Manager, Mai Kawaguchi, supported this by saying, "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."

No pricing details are available at this time but we know the game will be released this summer. Check out a few new screenshots and a trailer after the break.
