Castle of Illusion HD coming September 3, PSN version preorders get bonus Mega Drive version

Sega has finally announced that Castle of Illusion HD will be hitting the PlayStation Store on September 3, with the Xbox Live Arcade version to follow on September 4.

As an added incentive, Sega will be giving away the Mega Drive version of Castle of Illusion with digital preorders on the PlayStation Store. It is our understanding that this will be the only way to get the classic version of the game, as plans have not been announced for a separate release.

A local price for the PSN version has not been revealed (it is £9.99 / €12.99 / $US14.99 elsewhere), but it will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.


Sega releases Castle of Illusion E3 Trailer

Sega has released a new trailer for their upcoming remake of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse.

The trailer confirms that the game is based on the Mega Drive / Genesis version of the game, but will also feature new levels.

It’ll be coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Steam in the North American summer. So before the end of September, basically.


Sega teases return of Castle of Illusion

It would appear that, hot on the heels of the DuckTales remake, Sega and Disney are planning a remake of Castle of Illusion, one of Sega’s finest platformers from the early 1990s.

While no actual media for the game has been shown yet, Sega did put out the above teaser trailer, and the box art for the game has been leaked.

Expect to hear more from Sega on the project soon.
