There once was an excellent game called Castle of Illusion for the Sega Genesis.

If you loved that game, as many others once did, you'll be happy to see Mickey Mouse return in a high-definition remake. It's a labor of love, according to the developers, and the result should be fantastic.

If you want to learn more about how the team attacked this project, check out the new behind-the-scenes trailer, which explains the ins and outs of updating a 23-year-old title. You can see footage of the old game as well as the new overhaul, and you can really start to appreciate the designer's goal: Maintain the old-school charm while still giving us a modern look and feel. We're getting a fresh take on Strider , too, so the classic love continues to flow! And nobody seems to be complaining.

Castle of Illusion HD will be arriving soon in downloadable format.
