Here’s What It Took To Bring Mickey Mouse Back To Video GamesBy: Zach Walton - May 31, 2013
Aside from Epic Mickey and Kingdom Hearts, Mickey Mouse has been largely absent from video games for the past 10 years. That used to not be the case back in the 80s and 90s when Capcom and Sega made fantastic games starring classic Disney characters. Now Disney is bringing those games back.
So, what is it like to create a remake to one of the most beloved Mickey Mouse games of all time? The team at Sega Australia and the creators of the original title recently spoke to Sony about bringing back Castle of Illusion to a modern audience, while retaining the beloved aspects of the original title.
Castle of Illusion is just one out of two remakes that Disney is currently working with publishers on. Capcom announced at PAX East that it had partnered with WayForward to remake the much beloved Ducktales platformer for modern platforms.
With all these Disney remakes, would it be too much to ask to have a team remake Mickey Mania? With a little bit of polish, it could be the best Mickey Mouse game ever made.
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will be available later this year on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
