A total remake of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse has just been confirmed by Sega and Disney Interactive today. The remake of Castle of Illusion, a 2D side-scrolling game originally released in 1990 for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, is being developed by Sega Studios Australia and will feature ‘reimagined’ graphics in high-definition that mixes both 2D and 3D artworks.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will be released ‘this summer 2013’ on Steam for Windows PC and as a downloadable title on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Sony has posted a video trailer of Castle of Illusion for PS3:
