This Week's Featured Playstation Plus Items - US

By Shadow Enz,
PS+ 640x394


Thanks to the Playstation Blog, Social Media, and Community team for getting us in early on this week's featured Playstation Plus offers for US Playstation Plus users. Please note, all store updates occur in the US on Tuesday nights, so you won't see these changes until then.

Back from the Sega Genesis era, this game joins the Instant Game Collection this week:

Instant Game Collection


Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
Using that Disney magic to upgrade the graphics and gameplay to HD for the modern-day gamer, Mickey Mouse returns in Castle of Illusion, re-imagined from the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive version for current gen platforms.

When the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie, it’s up to Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie. Gather your courage and traverse enchanted forests, take on hordes of rebellious toys and navigate mazes of living books. Play as Mickey and save Minnie from Mizrabel’s evil clutches!
If you download this game before 4/28 you’ll receive the original Sega Genesis version of Castle of Illusion (1990) and a Mizrabel dynamic theme for free.

Every week, the Playstation Plus Team puts out a poll which you can fill out and help them decide which items were of value and which weren't. These polls impact future Playstation Plus promotions as well as the kinds of games introduced to the Instant Game Collection, so it's important to take the poll and let them know how you feel about the weekly specials.

That's it for this piece, but within the next few days you'll see more about the week's Store listings, as well as what's in store for Europe. Keep on the lookout for them!

Written by Shadow Enz
An enigmatic figure, whose biography is narrated by the same voice as most North America movie trailers, Shadow walks a dangerous line in the life of a man who does not exist...

Actually, he's a mild-mannered New Yorker who lives and breathes gaming. He also loves long walks on the beach...

While his biographical strategy may be questionable, this genuine and sincere gamer enjoys all the flavors of life, including all aspects of gaming. Being heavily invested in video games since the dawn of gaming, he usually prefers to experience gaming across multiple platforms through multiple perspectives, but will always feel best at home in an Arcade environment.

Here on TrueTrophies, he's usually writing about important PlayStation announcements and tries to keep up with the daunting abyss of lists in the PlayStation store weekly updates. He usually gets the chance to spread the word about sales that occur on the PlayStation Network, and takes pride in getting out the word of the latest Flash Sales when they occur. However, he's eternally grateful to the entire Newshound family for all their hard work and diligent writing, for he feels that they contribute the most to the site's news.

Under the strong and lovely guidance of Rebecca Smith (aka Punkyliar), he's making himself a home in the Newshound lounge.

He's also the Site Social Manager, Forum Manager, a Moderator and Janitor. If you hear him grumbling down the hall, you'll hear echoes of, "Someone's gotta do the dirty work *grumble grumble*..."

He loves conversation, so if you have anything to say to him, his inbox is always open for comment, criticism, conversation, or even a bit of trolling.

    I don't see where Castle Of Illusion is. Tried searching for it and nothing is coming up? Am I doing something wrong or is it a still gotta wait a bit kind of thing?

    Edit: is it only for PS3 users?
    Yes, Castle of Illusion is a PS3 game.

    You're welcome dude! Also for future reference, if you tried searching for it in the search bar on the top right of this site, when clicking on it, you'd be taken to the game's page. On the game's page, if you look at the top right, it tells you which platform it's for (usually).
