Are you looking forward to the next entry in the Castlevania franchise? While it won't be long before Mirror of Fate hits the Nintendo 3DS, don't be surprised if it eventually makes its way to HD platforms. Konami already has an HD version ready and waiting, according to Konami's UK studio boss 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.”

“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.”

Nintendo's exclusivity deal with Konami will probably last little more than a year, but for the time being, the title looks sure to please fans waiting for the next side-scrolling adventure from Konami's hit franchise. So let us know, will you be picking up Mirror of Fate when it comes out for the 3DS? Or will you be waiting till Nintendo's exclusivity deal with Konami ends so you can play it on the big screen? Let us know in the comments!
