It looks like SEGA Studios Australia’s last task before getting the boot will be to finish re-imagining Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse in glorious high-definition. Following a slew of rumours, SEGA has officially confirmed the remake of the Mega Drive classic on the PlayStation Blog, noting that the title will work its magic on the PlayStation Network this summer.
“Our plan is to deliver a fully re-imagined experience that takes advantage of the power of the 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,” explained senior digital brand manager Mai Kawaguchi.
The remake looks legitimately gorgeous, with the action now taking place in a 2.5D world. There’s no word on the PlayStation Vita version that was originally teased in last week’s leak, but we’re promised more details soon. While you wait, feast your eyes on the first official screenshots and trailer embedded below.
