Sega and Disney have confirmed the launch date for their Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse remake. The game will be available beginning September 3rd on PSN for PS3, followed by Xbox Live Arcade and PC digital download on the 4th. The price: $14.99/1200 Microsoft Points.

That’s good news, but wait, there’s even better news for PS3 Mickey Mouse fans. North American gamers who pre-order the PSN version of the game between August 20th and September 2nd will receive a free digital copy of the original Genesis classic at the time of pre-order. But that’s not all. PSN Pre-orders will also come with an exclusive dynamic XMB theme and three avatars. Those are some pretty sweet bonuses, especially for a digital download title.
