Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion digital box art materializes

5:00 PM on 04.07.2013 // Tony Ponce

Does this hint at a remake in the vein of DuckTales?

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?

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?
