After a not-so-cryptic teaser trailer released last week, today SEGA has finally announced Castle Of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, the remake/reboot of the 90s evergreen platformer. Here’s the press release from the SEGA Blog:

“SEGA,  in collaboration with Disney Interactive is pleased to announce the upcoming digital release of Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse, a complete re-imagining of the iconic Genesis side-scrolling adventure first released in 1990. Developed by Sega Studios Australia, Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse will be available worldwide for digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Windows PC in summer 2013.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse first debuted on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive in 1990 to critical acclaim. Excellent controls, music, and graphics helped to bring the magic of Disney to millions of SEGA fans around the world. Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse will continue this tradition. Completely rebuilt from the ground up, Castle of Illusion has stunning visuals and new gameplay mechanics. Fans will enjoy the original storyline as they help Mickey save Minnie from the evil witch, Mizrabel.”

“The original Castle of Illusion was tremendously entertaining and has a well-deserved reputation as a SEGA classic. Castle of Illusion Featuring Mickey Mouse brings this great game to a new generation. Mickey is back and he looks fantastic.”

Earlier today SEGA of America uploaded a mysterious new video on its YouTube channel. The silent b/w teaser really looks like some sort of Castle Of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse remake/sequel.

As you can see, the trailer has no description and the title just says “Summer 2013”, but the style is unmistakeble and this is definitely something about the Genesis’ evergreen Castle Of Illusion from 1990. We are quite sure about this because of the 1990 – 2013 copyright at the end of the video, but also because the game was already added to the brazilian ratings bureau and someone an NeoGAF spotted a box art from the xbox.com HTML code.

So it looks like another Disney’s classic game will see the HD light this year (after the great announcement of Duck Tales Remastered by Capcom last month). Seems like Disney has something to be forgiven for…isn’t it?
