Castle Of Illusion Goes Free For PlayStation Plus Members This Week
PlayStation Plus members have been spoiled this month. First, they got Mercenary Kings and Batman: Arkham City for free, and then Stealth Inc goes free. Now Plus members are getting a remake of one of the better Mickey Mouse games free of charge.
That’s right, this week’s free PlayStation Plus game is Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. The game is a remake of the classic Sega Genesis title that hit the console in 1990. It’s more than just a simple remake of a 24-year-old title though. It adds a few twists to the core gameplay while completely reworking the boss fights.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Mickey Mouse returns to star in Castle of Illusion, a fantastical re-imagining of the Sega Genesis classic. With all-new HD graphics and gameplay, Castle of Illusion brings Mickey and his world to life in this magical Disney adventure! When the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie, it’s up to Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie. Gather your courage and traverse enchanted forests, take on hordes of rebellious toys and navigate mazes of living books. Play as Mickey and save Minnie from Mizrabel’s evil clutches!
While previously only a bonus for those who pre-ordered the game, Sony says that those who download the game before April 28 will also get the original Castle of Illusion and a Mizrabel dynamic theme for free.
As always, PlayStation Plus members will be treated to a wide range of discounts this week. Starting Tuesday, PlayStation Plus members will be able to buy many of the LEGO games for PS3 and PS Vita at a discount:
Sony also notes that Street Fighter x Tekken on PS Vita will be dropped from the Instant Game Collection on April 22. If you don’t download it before then, it goes back to its normal price.
