A high-definition version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate has already been created, according to producer David Cox.
“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,” he told OXM UK.
“Then we lost bones from characters, you know, we dropped the resolution of the textures and everything to make it fit. At Mercury Steam we have an HD version of the game sitting there in a computer somewhere.”
Asked if Konami would ever consider releasing the high-definition version to home platforms, Cox said, “Absolutely, yeah. We would consider it. We want as many people to play it as possible.”
However, an exclusivity deal with Nintendo at the moment prevents that from happening just yet.
“Obviously we have an exclusivity deal with Nintendo right now though,” said Cox, “and they’ve been very supportive of the product.”
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate is due out for 3DS on March 5.
