The world’s various ratings boards, such as North America’s ESRB, have a long and proud history of spoiling games announcements. This time credit goes to Brazil, which recently rated Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, a game that might not necessarily mean much to the lifelong Nintendo loyalist but will undoubtedly excite plenty of those who backed Sega during the 16-bit console wars.

Castle of Illusion was a popular 2D platformer that saw releases on Sega Genesis, Master System, and Game Gear, as well as a handful of sequels. While plenty of old Sega classics have found life in the modern age thanks to various greatest hits collections and Virtual Console, this take on the popular mouse has been buried by time, and probably some cross-company legal red tape between Sega and Disney to boot. Now, the Brazillian listing says the game will be released on Wii U, 360, PlayStation 3, and Vita.

What really remains to be seen is whether this is a simply an as-is re-release or a full blown remake with all the aesthetic pleasantries afforded by modern processing power.
