The 2013 remake of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will no longer be available for purchase beginning this Friday, 2nd September.
Forza Horizon and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse have both been added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library.
It's been nearly a year since the release of 3DS title Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion, a game so forgettable I almost forgot I reviewed it. (But then, my memory isn't very good, hence the error in that article about the double-jumping. My once vivid recollections of the precise mechanics of mediocre early 90s platform games have been blurred by the passing of time and the horror of childbirth. Sorry, everyone.)
Epic Mickey: POI was billed as the "spiritual successor" to classic Mega Drive platformer Castle of Illusion. This is like tying a ribbon round a dog turd and claiming it's a tribute to a Fabergé egg. The good news, however, is that new PSN, XBLA and PC effort Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is the actual successor. It's got double-jumping and everything.
The game follows the adventures of the only popular entertainer of pensionable age not to have been arrested on child sex offences as he embarks on a quest to rescue his girlfriend, Minnie, from evil witch Mizrabel. He must explore seven worlds and defeat seven bosses to collect seven rainbow gems, then smash Mizrabel's face off with a Boomshot grenade launcher while shouting "Lock and load!" and calling her a bitch.
Sega's downloadable remake of Mickey Mouse game Castle of Illusion is coming out on 4th September - on PC, PSN and XBLA - priced £10 (1200 MSP).
If you pre-order it from 21st August on PSN you'll receive an emulated version of the Mega Drive original, a dynamic theme and three avatars as well.
The new Castle of Illusion is a 2D/3D hybrid wrought in lip-smacking HD. Sega Studios Australia is doing the honours.
The teased Castle of Illusion remake has officially been revealed as an XBLA, PSN and PC title due this summer, publisher Sega ha announced.
