Castle of Illusion: Reimagining a Classic – Part 2

Hi Everyone. Back in May, we released the first part of our Castle of Illusion Behind the Scenes Video, which gave you a glimpse of how the original game was developed. Sega Studios Australia team also shared their excitement in working on a re-imagined version of their favorite game from their childhood, teaming up with the game director of the original game. In this latest video, the development team share some of the key steps they took to bring the title to life while taking advantage of the latest gaming technology.

Stay tuned for more info on Mickey and his magical journey!

  • Tell me this is coming for the Vita please.

  • I want this now! when it will be released?
    I can’t wait for the nostalgic moments on this game thank you guys for the remake i loved this game when i was a kid and i know am going to enjoy it now

  • Wish it was coming to PS Vita, would rather play it there. (Ducktales too, but that’s Capcom)

  • Vita please…

  • i love Mickey. I’d try this game if it was $9.99. Can’t imagine spending a dime more for a remake of an old Genesis game.

  • I was a big fan of the original game. This version is looking good but I’m not fan of the animation right now.

    I hope the game is polished before its release.

    Thanks for doing this Sega.

    Now make a 2D version of Shadow Dancer with some cool graphics and animations.

  • Will buy for Vita.

    SEGA: where in the hell is the US Vita version of PSO2???

  • Mai, please please please bring this to Vita.

    Also, do you know anything about Skies of Arcadia HD? Vita also please!!!

  • i hope this game arrive on vita at some point :/

  • Take a hint Sony/Sega we want this on Vita.

  • Still no Vita version, still no purchase.

  • Looks great, true to my memories, even! However, along with most of the comments, I wish it were on Vita.

  • Obligatory “VITA” post.

    We need this on VITA along with Duck Tales. Make it happen, Sony!

  • Vita Version?

  • Why would i play this on my 50″ tv when i could play i in bed on my vita? No sale!

  • I’m Not Usually One To Join In With The Crowd, But You Guys Should Also Put Out A PS VITA Release. “Castle Of Illusion Would Look awesome On the Vita’s OLED Screen!

  • Wonderful game, but would like this on the Vita as well. Don’t worry, buying this for PS3 D1 so your hard work is much appreciated!

  • I would love to play that game … On my VITA.

  • (And yes, this applies to Duck Tales aswell)

  • Everytime I see something about this game… I die a little inside.

    Castle of Illusion?
    Why on earth would you do a remake of Castle of Illusion, when a much better game exists.

    I’m talking about, of course, “World of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck”

    There is an appalingly large hole where 2 player games used to fill. This would help, if only a little.

  • I would love to see this on Vita! :)

  • Not getting this for PS3, but it would be a day one purchase for the Vita!

  • I know this game will be released for the Ps3, but I hope in the future we get a vita version. This game will not only look beautiful, but the vita truly deserves more games!

  • if you think there going add this to the vita. fat chance… this game was released on console system only and what’s the point of putting it on a handheld sure i know COI was on Game Gear also but the sega genesis version or this game is never going be handheld you might has well give up hope after all this is sega and that hiru miku game is not coming to vita stateside so yeah i would not hold my breath…

  • Ps Vita? Come on!

  • No Vita release?

  • Will only buy on Vita.

  • Another +1 for vita only purchase

  • Never played this but considering getting it.

  • VITA version?

  • Dear SEGA MAKE A VITA VERSION!!!!!!!

  • +1 for a Vita version please.

  • sega should make a vita version and i must also add bring phantasy star online 2 over seas

  • Would rather play this on PS3 so I don’t have to squint to see stuff on the screen, plus I’d rather use the superior analog sticks on the DualShock… oh, hey! It is for PS3! Great! It all works out then… :)

  • Will this game come with the original Sega 16-bit version?
    I hope so.

    That would really be the main reason I would be buying it.

  • @ SpooNManX

    I hope so too, but I doubt it.

    I think they probably would have mentioned it by now because it would increase perceived value from potential customers… but, who knows.

    It would be a nice surprise!

  • @ Ryumoau

    Yeah, you love Mickey so much that you just can’t bear to spend more than $10 on the game. Indeed, that is definitely love.

    So, what is it? $15? Oh crap. Yeah, that’s just too much. That extra $5 is too tough to manage. You might lose everything you own if you took such a gamble. I see…

    Hmm… well maybe if you didn’t spend $1,000 every year on avatars, you might have the extra $5.

    Oh, that’s right, you were just lying about how much you love Mickey in the first place, so this entire post was pointless. My bad.

  • Really hoping for a Vita version (along with Ducktales too)

  • Pleaseee make a port for Vita

  • This was one of my favorite Genesis games and a surprisingly challenging platformed, given the Disney theme. I’m really liking the look of this new gen version. I wonder if there are any plans to take on Fantasia next if this one is successful…

  • 41 comments and not even ONE freaking reply from the developers or someone from SONY! this is irritating and humiliating for US the consumers! Remember? the ones who buy your consoles and games? At least put a monkey to write to us that you just can not do it for the vita, or that the vita is so poorly marketed that only hardcore half broken gamers care and you don’t want to put efforts on it and that’ll be enough! gosh ……

  • BTW ….. day One buy! he he, even if it is not on the vita ……..

  • this looks great, but I would of a preferred a remake of the mickey mania Genesis game by SOny

  • Would buy on Vita.

  • Got a PS3 but dont play on it much when my Vita is far more convenient. I love this sort of game on there.
    Please make a Vita version! Its such a shame to keep having great loking ps3 games and then not bother with them

  • Having traded in the failed Vita to Gamestop back when it was still $150 trade in was the best thing I ever did. It was doomed from the start. Im so glad they decided to bring this to the PS3 (where the big boys play) instead. While its not the better of all the Mickey games the Sega released, its still gonna look killer on my 60in! Day 1 for me for sure. Come home Mickey, come home where you belong!!!

  • When it comes to the vita, I buy.

  • I’m more familiar with that Mickey game where he was sometimes the fantasia wizard or a fireman. Will you guys please re-make that one next?

  • @46: Because to be on Vita, it can’t be on PS3…. oh wait,

  • Great!!!! Really nice vita game, get it now!!!! oh wait…. only for ps3, not gone buy it…
