Castle of Illusion remake teased for this summer

Mysterious avant-garde trailer surfaces.

Sega's 1990 cult-classic Mega Drive game Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse appears to be getting a remake this summer, according to a mysterious new trailer shown below.

Castle of Illusion's main antagonist, the witch Mizrabel, is heavily featured along with her wind-up toy soldier minions. That game's common collectible, the apple, makes an appearance as well.

Last month Castle of Illusion was spotted on Australian and Brazilian Classification rating boards, suggesting a remake or re-release was on the way. This fancy new black and white trailer suggests the former, ala Capcom's recent announcement of a Duck Tales remake.

According to the Brazilian ratings board leak, Castle of Illusion was rated for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Vita. This doesn't necessarily mean it will be released on all these platforms though, so we'll have to wait for a more formal announcement on that.
