Castle of Illusion Staring Mickey Mouse, the HD Remake of the Genesis classic, is getting delisted across all platforms September 2nd.
If you ever wondered why people get so grumpy over digital-only releases, here’s one big reason: we’ve heard that the 2013 remake of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will be delisted from XBLA, PSN, Steam and mobile platforms on September 2nd. The news arrived via an email from an email sent out by indiegala, which claimed the game would be “retired” on that date. The reason for the delisting is likely because SEGA is not renewing the license with Disney, which has been a sad ongoing trend with the company that has also contributed to the delisting of OutRun Online Arcade and After Burner Climax.
The game is a 2.5D Remake that adds 3D platforming sections, a new soundtrack from the Grant Kirkhope, and more. Its a great remake that I highly recommend you get before its delisted. Its is getting a lot of different sales, noted by SEGA Bits below and in the source link is the sites review of the game as well.
Thankfully, some great sales are going on right now. The Humble Bundle PC version is only $2.24, discounted from $14.99, and the PS3 version is only $3.74. If you are still on the fence, check out our review of the game in which we awarded it an A- and called it “A fantastic platformer!”.
If you need further convincing to give this game a shot, below the source link will be interviews from the creators of this HD remake project, some gameplay footage of the first level & a comparison between the original game and this remake.
