Konami’s UK studio boss David Cox has told CVG that the company is seriously considering releasing Nintendo 3DS exclusive Castlevania: Mirror of Fate for HD platforms. Cox said it is all dependent on sales of the Nintendo 3DS version, which comes out March 5th in the United States. He revealed that they created everything in the game in high-definition, and then simply shrunk it down for the Nintendo 3DS. Would you buy the 3DS version, or wait for the inevitable HD console version?
“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.”
“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.”
