It’s been rumoured but this week Sega made it official: Castle Of Illusion is getting a HD remake.
Sega Of America released a black and white teaser trailer for the game last week, and this has now been followed up with a far less ambiguous colour trailer.
Neatly, the second trailer also expands the first’s dark intro to show Mickey approaching the eponymous castle in a way designed to mimic the classic box art of the original Mega Drive game (said artwork shown above).
Sega also released a few screenshots, giving a glimpse of the new art style the remake will be adopting.
We really like how it looks, and look forward to seeing more of the project as the game edges closer to its summer release.
Given that this news comes after Capcom announced that it will be releasing a HD remake of its classic NES platformer Duck Tales, it seems like 2013 will be the summer of Disney remakes, if not warmth.
