Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will be removed from the Xbox Store on Sept. 2

Sega has confirmed that its game Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse will no longer be available to purchase from the Xbox Store after Friday, Sept. 2. The Xbox 360 side-scroller game was just made available to Xbox One owners, via backwards compatibility, earlier this week.

The game was first released in 2013 and was a remake of the classic 16-bit side scroller that was first made for the Sega Genesis in 1990. In a statement to Polygon, Sega says:

"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," the company said in a statement. "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."

If you want to add this game to your Xbox One collection, you need to move quickly. Castle of Illusion with Mickey Mouse is priced at $14.99 in the Xbox Store.
