This teaser from SEGA seems to announce the return of Castle Of Illusion

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?


Help to revive Retronauts on Kickstarter

retronauts podcast kickstarter

After the umpleasant shut down of 1UP last month, the retro games podcast Retronauts found itself without a home or any money to keep going, and that’s a shame because it was a fucking good podcast, one of the best out there.

Obviously its hosts have immediately started a Kickstarter project to revive the classic games podcast. They’d like to produce an entire year of new Retronauts episodes, released semi-monthly (that’s twice a month) with three regular hosts and a rotating fourth chair. All told, if this Kickstarter reaches its minimum amount, they’ll give us 26 new episodes to dig into, with the possibility of more on the way. But, with the help of some extra fundage, they’d like to do a hell of a lot more than that.

Those are the words from Retronauts guys asking for your money:

“Over the course of 160 episodes, the Retronauts podcast has delved into the history of your favorite titles, interviewed legendary developers, and explored the many strange tangents that exist within the realm of classic gaming. Since 2006, we’ve made a habit out of talking way too much about the intricacies and oddities of video game history.

But now that its benefactor has gone kaput, Retronauts as we know it is without a home — and its various contributors are without the platform they’ve used to educate and entertain these past seven years. That’s where you come in. We’d like to keep Retronauts going for at least another year, but we’re in need of the equipment and resources necessary to produce the quality podcast you’ve come to expect. Sure, we could always use Skype, but nothing beats the intimacy of four people in a tiny room screaming at each other about Milon’s Secret Castle.”

So if you’ve enjoyed their podcasts in the past (as we did) give them some money on their Kickstarter project!
