Castle of Illusion PSN dated, pre-orders come with the original classic Genesis title

SEGA has staple-gunned a release date to its high-definition revamp of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, confirming the retro-fused platformer will hit PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 4.

The game will set you back £9.99/$14.99/1200 Microsoft Points.

That’s not all, however. Those of you who pre-order the game on PSN between August 21 and September 3 will receive the original SEGA Genesis title, an exclusive dynamic theme and three avatars.

Castle of Illusion takes the original platformer and spruces things up with all-new HD graphics, re-creating the classic adventure for a whole new generation. The game sees the Disney mascot battling through the game’s eponymous castle to rescue Minnie Mouse from the clutches from the evil Mizrabel.
