Boy, does that screenshot bring back memories. Castle of Illusion, the 1990 Sega Genesis game, was a seminal platformer back in the day of Mario’s hegemony. I vividly remember hopping Mickey Mouse from leaf to leaf and just being gobsmacked at how beautiful the damn thing was, even though I couldn’t care less about Disney’s frontmouse.

I don’t know how well Castle of Illusion will hold up after 20 years, but Sega and Disney Interactive intend to show me with an HD update due out this summer. Maybe the best way to do a Mickey Mouse game is to go back to a time less Epic?
