So despite it being delisted on Friday, Castle of Illusion is now backwards compatible on Xbox One.

I know you can disable the narrator's voice in Castle of Illusion, but is it possible to turn off all the voices? I'm watching a walkthrough and they seem really annoying and distracting.


I'd also ask if there's a patch that removes the brownishness and realistic dirt from the graphics, but I'm sure there isn't. =P

So in a rare case of a de-listed downloadable Sega game being re-listed: Castle of Illusion is back on Steam.

Which I guess means Sega got the license again? I imagine they wouldn't try to get the license just so they could sell the PC version of this again though...

EDIT: Back on PSN and XBLA as well.

Only the second time it's happened, right? It seems the developer diaries aren't coming back to XBLA though.

Was there a reason why it's relisted?

None has been given, but it's easy to speculate why it was relisted. The reason why it was delisted was that Sega's license to sell the game expired. Meaning Sega has has made a deal with Disney that allowed them to sell the game again. I heavily doubt they tried to re-acquire the license just so they could sell Castle of Illusion again though.
