Several gaming news sites have picked up on the fact that the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive (or Master System?) classic Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, developed by SEGA AM7, has been rated by the Brazilian ratings board. The platforms listed include Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, and Playstation Vita. No other information, such as potential release date or whether this is the Master System version of the Genesis/Mega Drive version, is given. Could it be that Disney and SEGA have a stronger relationship following Wreck-It Ralph, and the two worked out a deal to rerelease the licensed game? Hope so! Ideally they’d release both versions of the game in a Vintage Collection, and other SEGA developed Disney titles such as World of Illusion and QuackShot are to follow. When we learn more, we’ll be sure to share.Ad:

It would be great if it’s part of a Mickey/”Illusion” series collection. There was a third Master System title, “Legend of Illusion,” that I think only ever came out in Brazil, so it’s too expensive to buy a copy now for all but the most deranged— er, dedicated collectors. 😉
It’d be cool if Disney, Sega, and whomever owns the rights to the old Virgin Interactive Genesis/Mega Drive titles could work out some kind of deal to put all Disney-licensed games onto a single disk collection, perhaps also including Sega Marvel titles now that Disney owns Marvel.
I hope it’s bundled with World of Illusion (though that’s unlikely) as not only is Castle of Illusion very short, but imo World of Illusion is the better game.
Sega will hopefully not be charging a very high price for this if it’s just Castle of Illusion.
That would be great news, i still have the original one on the Sega Master System. It would be nice to see it in HD.
Are these games worth anything these days?
