Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is receiving the HD remake treatment, Sega announced.

The game is expected to be released digitally this summer on Xbox 360 via Xbox Live, PlayStation 3 through the PlayStation Network and PC through Steam.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is a highly-acclaimed 2-D platformer originally released in 1990 for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. The original version of the game was developed by Sega’s AM7 studio.

Sega Studios Australia is handling development of the remastered version of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. The developer previously worked on the 2009 title Stormrise and the London 2012 Olympics game. The director of the Genesis version of the game, who is now working at Disney Interactive, is also assisting in development.

Although capturing the spirit of the previous title, the updated version of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will have new gameplay mechanics. Some aspects intended for but never included in the original game can now be fully achieved thanks to the power of current generation consoles.

This is the second remastered classic Disney platformer expected to be released this summer. Capcom and WayForward are bringing back Scrooge McDuck for a remake of the 1989 DuckTales game in DuckTales Remastered.

Sega released a trailer for Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse alongside the announcement. It can be viewed below.
