The lights are on
The recent Mickey Mouse games from Disney might not have been great shakes, but Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse has always been considered a classic for Sega's Genesis console. Now there are reports that the game might be coming back.
A listing from the Australian ratings board for the game has popped up, and Brazil's equivalent has also given it a rating. The Australian listing is through Sega Europe, but if true, hopefully it's also coming here.
Meanwhile, the Brazilian listing supplied by Pockett.net mentions the Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, and Vita for the presumably downloadable game.

I had so much fun with this game for the Genesis. I've probably beaten it 10+ times. It would be awesome if it made a return as a downloadable title.
As in for Virtual Console/ PSN/ XBLA? Cool. I've always been interested in that game, and it'll be fun to see how it holds up.
Yeah, they are trying to redeem themselves because the last two Mickey Mouse games were jokes, in my opinion. This sounds cool but I'm not getting my hopes high again.
I have always wanted to play this game, it just seems like one of those lost gems of the 16-bit era for me.
cool , i've heard/seen good things about the game before
While the Epic Mickey games had their problems, I thought they were rather great games. I'm sad that they probably won't continue them, but if a remake of Castle of Illusion is indeed released, I think I'll be happy with just that.
I've never actually played this game but i've heard good things about it, so, if this is true, i'll make sure to consider buying it on the Wii U.
My childhood :)
Hopefully when the Virtual Console arrives this summer, this is one of the first games on the Wii U.
Easily one of my favorite Sega games. I still bust out my Sega to play this from time to time (Along with Alterted Beast, Shadow Dancer, and a few others)
I'm almost positive I played this. In the level from the screenshot, there was a floor of jello that would swallow you, and I never did get over it when I was a kid.
Just bought a Genesis for this and Mickey Mania. Still great games but super frustrating. They just don't make games like they used to.
