Last month, the Brazilian ratings board DJCTQ revealed that the SEGA Genesis platforming classic Castle of Illusion was coming to PS3, Vita, 360, and Wii U. Now, XBLA digital box art has appeared, indicating that a formal announcement is just around the corner.

Here's where the weirdness comes in. The art is completely different compared to the original game's cover -- compare for yourself in the gallery. Does this hint at a full-scale remake rather than a quick-and-dirty port? With the recent announcement of DuckTales Remastered, I wouldn't discount that possibility!

A remake is most definitely what we need to wash away the  disappointment of Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion. Wouldn't you agree?

It's not a trick, Michael... it's a Castle of Illusion!

Let's call Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion a false start. It tried to recapture the spirit of Castle of Illusion on SEGA Genesis, but it sadly fell short. The actual remake, on the other hand, is looking like the real d...more

Sega really wants to get Castle of Illusion right

It can't be easy trying to do justice to a legacy as large as Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Take in Mickey's rough patches in his last few games, and it's not hard to see why many fans would be so apprehensive to...more

Castle of Illusion remake announced for PSN, XBLA, and PC

Remember the '90s? Before our eyes ever (accidentally) set upon Disney hentai and before Mickey Mouse got thrown into a bunch of lame platformers? We had Castle of Illusion and it was enough to get me giddy to visit my grand...more

Tease me, please me, oh Castle of Illusion teaser!

The cat's pretty much out of the bag already, but if I had no idea SEGA was planning a Castle of Illusion remake, this teaser would definitely tease the sh*t out of me. It looks like Schindler's List but with sentient wooden...more

Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it.more
