It's something of a bumper morning for Castlevania fans, as Konami producer Dave Cox has been giving interviews with several different sites regarding the forthcoming 3DS title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate.
Having already spilled the beans on the game's development and storyline to GameSpot, Cox has mentioned to CVG that a HD version of the game is perfectly possible, as Konami and MercurySteam have HD-ready assets at hand:
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.
Cox was then asked if Konami would consider a home console version with HD visuals, to which he 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.
Could this mean a Wii U version in the future? Let's hope so. Mirror of Fate already looks amazing on the 3DS; in HD it would be even more striking.
Mirror of Fate launches in North America on March 5th, with the European release coming slightly later, on the 8th.
