Castlevania dev would 'absolutely consider' Mirror of Fate HD

HD version already "sitting in a computer somewhere," reveals producer

HD assets for upcoming 3DS title Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate already exist at developer MercurySteam, the game's producer has revealed.


Speaking to CVG in London this morning, Konami's head of UK studio Dave Cox confirmed the firm would "absolutely" consider an upgraded version of Mirror of Fate for home consoles, should it be successful on 3DS.

He said: "We created everything in high definition - all the textures, all the levels, high-poly models, everything - and we kind of shrunk it all down into the 3DS.

"Then we lost bones from characters, you know, we dropped the resolution of the textures and everything to make it fit. At MercurySteam we have an HD version of the game sitting there in a computer somewhere."

Asked directly if the studio would consider an HD console version, Cox replied: "Absolutely, yeah. We would consider it.

"We want as many people to play it as possible. Obviously we have an exclusivity deal with Nintendo right now though and they've been very supportive of the product."

Mirror of Fate publisher Nintendo has confirmed a March 8 release date in the UK and a March 5 release date in the US.
