It’s real: Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse dated

Castle of Illusion
ALWAYS WITH THE SPIDERS.

The HD reimagining of the rather excellent Sega Mega Drive/Genesis platformer, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, is due out on 4 September. Gosh!

While it follows roughly the same basics as the original, there’s plenty of new stuff. The castle itself sounds like it’s now a hub area, most of the levels and boss fights have been redesigned somewhat, and it looks like there are sections in which you’ll be controlling Mickey in a manner other than as a side-scrolling platformer.

Castle of Illusion will cost you £9.99 on its 4 September release.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      Ah this one of the games of my childhood, I played both versions (the master system one and the Sega Genesis one), I remember each level and bosses, btw that thing about remastered bosses is what is getting me excited. I quite enjoyed them, that Dragon Boss from the master system version was quite intimidating for me at the time, even tho the final boss was a total pushover and a boring fight. Meanwhile the Genesis one didnt have the dragon but the final boss fight was quite good.

      Hopefully there will be some extreme difficulty options to set it extreme, I thought the game was quite challenging for me when I was a kid but now I would expect something far more difficult.
