Castlevania dev MercurySteam said they would “absolutely” consider a HD console version of Castlevania: Mirror of Fate.
Speaking with CVG, Konami’s head of UK studio Dave Cox said the HD assets for the game already exist, in fact, the game was developed large then reduced down:
“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.”
Then asked if the studio would consider a HD console variant of the title, 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 hits the UK and Ireland on March the 8th, but will release 3 days earlier in the US on March 5th.
