Konami would "absolutely" consider releasing Castlevania: Mirror of Fate HD for Xbox

3DS game is a nipped-tucked version of high definition original

Lords of Shadow 2 may not be the only upcoming Castlevania title from MercurySteam you'll play on Xbox 360. Speaking to CVG, Konami's UK studio boss David Cox has revealed that a high definition version of 3DS spin-off Mirror of Fate already exists.

"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 began.


"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."

So would Konami ever release the original version for home formates? "Absolutely, yeah. We would consider it. We want as many people to play it as possible."

But don't go setting aside money for a preorder just yet. "Obviously we have an exclusivity deal with Nintendo right now though and they've been very supportive of the product," Cox cautioned. Guess you'll have to make do with Lords of Shadow 2 for the moment, then. Which is no bad thing, as the below gameplay trailer demonstrates.

Tickled? Disgracefully departed Matt made some plausible-sounding demands of Lords of Shadow 2 before he vanished into the Outer Darkness.
