[EN]: It seems like its presence was not meant to last and only became an illusion now that the Castle of Illusion remake will be removed on September 2nd from digital marketplaces, Sega told Game Informer. The remake version of the 1990 Sega Genesis game was launched in 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, but fans of Disney’s favorite mascot will only have until this Friday to purchase the game, currently available for $14.99 on consoles and Steam, and for $4.99 for Android and iOS.

As the announcement was made, Major Nelson mentioned the Xbox 360 version of the game will be playable on the Xbox One thanks to the most recent backward compatibility available since yesterday.

Polygon did share a statement from Sega explaining the reason for the removal: “Due to an expiration of business terms, SEGA will no longer be able to sell Castle of Illusion on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, or Steam, with the current publishing arrangement coming to an end on September 2. For players who own the game, they will be able to re-download it to their respective system at any point in the future — this delisting should not prevent current owners from being able to access the game at a later time.”
