In this latest video, the development team share some of the key steps they took to bring the title to life while taking advantage of the latest gaming technology.

i love Mickey. I’d try this game if it was $9.99. Can’t imagine spending a dime more for a remake of an old Genesis game.

I was a big fan of the original game. This version is looking good but I’m not fan of the animation right now.

I hope the game is polished before its release.

Thanks for doing this Sega.

Now make a 2D version of Shadow Dancer with some cool graphics and animations.

Looks great, true to my memories, even! However, along with most of the comments, I wish it were on Vita.

Obligatory “VITA” post.

We need this on VITA along with Duck Tales. Make it happen, Sony!

July 22nd, 10:07 am

I’m Not Usually One To Join In With The Crowd, But You Guys Should Also Put Out A PS VITA Release. “Castle Of Illusion Would Look awesome On the Vita’s OLED Screen!

Wonderful game, but would like this on the Vita as well. Don’t worry, buying this for PS3 D1 so your hard work is much appreciated!

Pinouboxe said:

July 22nd, 10:48 am

I would love to play that game … On my VITA.

Pinouboxe said:

July 22nd, 10:50 am

(And yes, this applies to Duck Tales aswell)

LiquidGhostFox said:

Everytime I see something about this game… I die a little inside.

Castle of Illusion?
Why on earth would you do a remake of Castle of Illusion, when a much better game exists.

I’m talking about, of course, “World of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck”

There is an appalingly large hole where 2 player games used to fill. This would help, if only a little.

AV-X14 said:

July 22nd, 11:43 am

Not getting this for PS3, but it would be a day one purchase for the Vita!


July 22nd, 11:44 am

I know this game will be released for the Ps3, but I hope in the future we get a vita version. This game will not only look beautiful, but the vita truly deserves more games!

DJPlace said:

July 22nd, 11:45 am

if you think there going add this to the vita. fat chance… this game was released on console system only and what’s the point of putting it on a handheld sure i know COI was on Game Gear also but the sega genesis version or this game is never going be handheld you might has well give up hope after all this is sega and that hiru miku game is not coming to vita stateside so yeah i would not hold my breath…

RasecMask said:

Blackstar131 said:

July 22nd, 3:30 pm

PrimeroIncognito said:

July 22nd, 4:03 pm

Would rather play this on PS3 so I don’t have to squint to see stuff on the screen, plus I’d rather use the superior analog sticks on the DualShock… oh, hey! It is for PS3! Great! It all works out then… :)

SpooNManX said:

July 22nd, 4:15 pm

Will this game come with the original Sega 16-bit version?
I hope so.

That would really be the main reason I would be buying it.

PrimeroIncognito said:

July 22nd, 4:31 pm

@ SpooNManX

I hope so too, but I doubt it.

I think they probably would have mentioned it by now because it would increase perceived value from potential customers… but, who knows.

It would be a nice surprise!

PrimeroIncognito said:

July 22nd, 4:36 pm

@ Ryumoau

Yeah, you love Mickey so much that you just can’t bear to spend more than $10 on the game. Indeed, that is definitely love.

So, what is it? $15? Oh crap. Yeah, that’s just too much. That extra $5 is too tough to manage. You might lose everything you own if you took such a gamble. I see…

Hmm… well maybe if you didn’t spend $1,000 every year on avatars, you might have the extra $5.

Oh, that’s right, you were just lying about how much you love Mickey in the first place, so this entire post was pointless. My bad.

wilfareus said:

July 22nd, 6:40 pm

Really hoping for a Vita version (along with Ducktales too)

rustohariken said:

July 22nd, 7:15 pm

Pleaseee make a port for Vita

PolarDad said:

July 22nd, 8:43 pm

This was one of my favorite Genesis games and a surprisingly challenging platformed, given the Disney theme. I’m really liking the look of this new gen version. I wonder if there are any plans to take on Fantasia next if this one is successful…

andrezguzman said:

July 22nd, 9:21 pm

41 comments and not even ONE freaking reply from the developers or someone from SONY! this is irritating and humiliating for US the consumers! Remember? the ones who buy your consoles and games? At least put a monkey to write to us that you just can not do it for the vita, or that the vita is so poorly marketed that only hardcore half broken gamers care and you don’t want to put efforts on it and that’ll be enough! gosh ……

andrezguzman said:

July 22nd, 9:22 pm

BTW ….. day One buy! he he, even if it is not on the vita ……..

ghostaljjic said:

July 22nd, 10:35 pm

this looks great, but I would of a preferred a remake of the mickey mania Genesis game by SOny

Shad0w59 said:

July 22nd, 10:48 pm

Would buy on Vita.

OnkeyTDV said:

July 23rd, 2:28 am

Got a PS3 but dont play on it much when my Vita is far more convenient. I love this sort of game on there.
Please make a Vita version! Its such a shame to keep having great loking ps3 games and then not bother with them

God-Of-Lyf said:

Having traded in the failed Vita to Gamestop back when it was still $150 trade in was the best thing I ever did. It was doomed from the start. Im so glad they decided to bring this to the PS3 (where the big boys play) instead. While its not the better of all the Mickey games the Sega released, its still gonna look killer on my 60in! Day 1 for me for sure. Come home Mickey, come home where you belong!!!

aelurio1980 said:

July 23rd, 6:18 am

When it comes to the vita, I buy.

GhostMachine1 said:

July 23rd, 7:23 am

I’m more familiar with that Mickey game where he was sometimes the fantasia wizard or a fireman. Will you guys please re-make that one next?

Elvick_ said:

July 23rd, 7:38 am

@46: Because to be on Vita, it can’t be on PS3…. oh wait,

Joao_Vicente said:

July 23rd, 8:24 am

Great!!!! Really nice vita game, get it now!!!! oh wait…. only for ps3, not gone buy it…
