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.”

Chris Olson, vice president of Digital Business at SEGA of America, added a personal thought to the press release, we hope to share when the game will be out.

“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.”

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?

What’s the future of Resident Evil? Kawata spoke of a possible series reboot

Resident-Evil-Revelations-Achievements

As we already told you, we are long-standing great fans of the Resident Evil series, since the very first one, released in 1996 (awwww that live action intro). Anyway Resident Evil is turning 17 this year, and the franchise may have a bit of dust on it, or most likely, its metamorphosis into a more action-driven game rewarded Capcom with poor reviews and disappointing sales.

Regarding this tricky subject, Capcom’s Masachika Kawata, producer of Resident Evil: Revelations, made the comments to Eurogamer during a discussion of his latest project, the Revelations porting for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

Kawata mentioned the possibility of a reboot:

“If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players. It would almost entail having a slight reboot to get the series into a place where it would work with open-world gameplay. That’s just a personal opinion.

A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that…There is a possibility.”

He also said that it’s in the upcoming porting of Revelations, which partially reintroduced some of the atmosphere and classic horror of earlier entries in the series, that he sees clues to the future of the Resident Evil:

“Once we see Revelations released on consoles, we’ll be looking very carefully at how the title is received and what feedback we get. I think we’ll get a lot of input from the fanbase and the media on what it means for Resident Evil, and what it could mean for the future of the series. We’ll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next.

Moving forward I can see us focusing even more on the horror aspect and fear in the series, and see us making something scarier than we have already.”

So what we have to expect from future Resident Evil titles? An open gta-like world full of zombies…?

Why can’t we just have back Shinji Mikami and his survival horrors?
