Sega teases Disney project for summer release

Sega is teasing something Disney related, lending more weight to the stack of evidence that the company is planning a Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse revival. A new teaser trailer from the company promises a Disney project aiming for a summer release, and in the process shows off a few telltale Castle of Illusion references.

Sega's teaser trailer is brief, and doesn't mention a title. It does, however, show wind-up toy soldiers, a spooky castle, and a looming figure who looks suspiciously similar to Castle of Illusion villainess Mizrabel, all with the Disney name attached in one corner.

Given that a Castle of Illusion game was recently rated for current-gen consoles, and XBLA cover art found, that seems like a safe bet. The new mystery is just how this game will look. The trailer shows newly rendered 3D, which could mean the game is being given a 3D makeover--or those images are just for the sake of cutscenes and the game will retain its 2D origins. The presence of a teaser (and quickly approaching summer due date) implies that Sega will be taking the wraps off sooner than later.
