Sega Classic 'Castle of Illusion' (1990) Remake for Summer

A remake not a remaster.

Originally released in 1990, 'Castle of Illusion' is an early Sega Genesis platformer, wherein Mickey Mouse seeks to save Minnie Mouse from the clutches of Mizrabel. The scope of the new version includes all new visuals and remade audio. Unlike 'DuckTales,' the 'Castle of Illusion' remake appears to have incorporated serious changes to the gameplay, even while invoking the style of the original game.
The original game spawned a series of sequels including 'World of Illusion,' which is preferred by some fans. If critical and commercial reception is good for 'Castle of Illusion' and 'DuckTales,' the possibility remains that Disney may contract remakes of other 'Illusion' games among the various twenty year-old Disney platformers.
The Sega Genesis classic 'Castle of Illusion' is being remade and is expected to be released for PSN, XBLA and Steam this summer.

It's about damn time that Sega starts digging into their old school library. Sega has a massive IP catalogue that can rival Nintendo, but for the past 10 years or so they've been content to release buggy Sonic games and Football Manager games. Did they just forget about how many great franchises they owned to rights to?

Well, hopefully this game sells well and we get more retro remakes. Come on Vectorman HD!

Yeah, but that's not Sega.

It's the only system I ever saw it on. It's even one of the games mentioned on the back of my Genesis box.

No, I mean, yes, it was released on a Sega console, but it's not a Sega game. Sega didn't develop or publish the game.

It was on the back of the box of my Genesis along with the other Sega games. But whoever is responsible they need to bring it back.

I remember the original being a great game at the time. Of course I was like 8 or 9. I don't think I managed to beat it. I still have it though apparently I lost the case, I'll have to break out the Genesis sometime and give it a play-through before the remake hits.

Castle of Illusion was incredible. I'd easily put it (and its sibling Quackshot) on a equal footing with the Genesis Sonic games. Pretty much anything Sega developed back then was gold, especially the platformers.

A Vectorman remake/HD special edition would make me happy. There's an Earthworm Jim HD remake on XBLA and it is just as awesome as when I threw the cart into my Genesis for the first time
