Sega revealed the release date Friday for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC remake of the classic Genesis platformer, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Those that pre-order the title through the Playstation Network will also receive some bonus extras.
Castle of Illusion will be released worldwide on Sept. 3, 2013 for $14.99 (1200 MS Points). Those that pre-order the game on PSN between Aug. 20 and Sept. 2 will receive the original Genesis version of the along with one exclusive dynamic theme and three avatars. What's more, the original Castle of Illusion can be downloaded and played immediately during the pre-order period.
The game is a complete remake of the original Genesis version of Castle of Illusion and features the same classic 2D side-scrolling play but with all new 3D characters and environments. The levels are not strict remakes but are re-imaginings including some new sections that allow the player to move Mickey in multiple directions.
The plot is still the same though as the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie Mouse leaving Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue her.
