Disney platformer Castle of Illusion set for an HD remake this summer
DuckTales isn’t the only classic Disney platformer getting some high definition this year. SEGA announced this morning that it is collaborating with Disney Interactive to release “a fantastical HD reimagining” of the iconic 1990 Genesis game Castle of Illusion Staring Mickey Mouse this summer.
In development at SEGA Studios Australia (who is working with the director of the original), the HD remake seeks to bring Mickey’s classic adventure to a new generation of players, with enhanced visuals and gameplay elements “that were intended for the original game, but couldn’t be achieved until now due to the technical limitations of previous generation consoles.”
“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.” said Mai Kawaguchi, Sega’s Senior Digital Brand Manager, on the PlayStation Blog.
The HD Castle of Illusion will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Below, you will find the new trailer and screenshots that Sega revealed along with the game’s existence. Enjoy.
