Remember when the Brazilian ratings board outed the existence of a Castle of Illusion re-release? Well the game still hasn’t been officially announced but now we have the XBLA box art courtesy of Lifelower on Twitter.
Interestingly, the box art is completely new artwork which may suggest this is more than a simple re-release of the Mega Drive original. Could a true HD remaster be in the works?
Famitsu have done a silly and leaked information about the game SEGA are teasing via this website. The PS3/PS Vita game was not due to be officially announced until Thursday but the Famitsu leak suggests we have a new entry in the Let’s Make a Soccer Team! franchise. Bit of anti-climax eh?
A new version of the leaked Streets of Rage reimagining footage has been uploaded which now includes sound. The prototype footage features a playable game and is not pre-rendered.
Ruffian Games business and management chief Gary Liddon (who also uploaded this new video) has also revealed more about the game:
“It was something we built very rapidly and represents pre-pre-pre-pre (lots of pres) pre-Alpha quality. Even so it has a certain charm What’s the story behind it all? Like a lot of developers we work on a lot of different prototypes, they’re just not usually shown in public. In this case an older version of the same video was leaked last week which came as a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. As it had no sound I thought there wouldn’t be any harm sharing a version with audio. Beyond that there’s not a lot more I can say unfortunately :)”
Sean Noonan has also chimed in to answer a question about why the game was cancelled. His response: “I don’t really have a solid answer to that :(”
