I remember playing this game, along with World of Illusion, as a kid and I loved them! : D They were both fun games and I look forward to trying this out. If it's great, I wonder if they will re-make World of Illusion, which I really enjoied.
Also, I agree that an HD re-release of the origonal would have been fun at lest. Remakes can be akward if done wrong.
