PlanetPlaystation: "With the Vita in dire need of core titles, you’d think Sony would jump at the chance to pursue Konami’s Dave Cox and his team for a Vita exclusive. However, Cox told us that the platform simply wasn’t as appealing as the 3DS"
I disagree. I think Mirror of Fate would be amazing on Vita and I really don't care much for the 3D - I'm all for better visuals and controls when it comes to Castlevania.
As much as I dislike crazy fools, Mirror of Fate does feel more like a Vita title. 3D is cool and all, but for Castlevania? I don't know.
2d games in 3d are great, there's more depth of field and the worlds appear larger than they actually are. You play any 2d game in 3d on the 3ds and the effect is like night and day.
I will love to play it on my 3DS. I can't wait for this game, Professor Layton and Luigi's mansion! As for the Vita: It's probably because the hardware sales are slow and third party sales are also very bad at the moment (most of the third party games sold around 100k and only Fifa managed to sell more than 150k). Also, there are 3 AMAZING Castlevania games on DS and it looks like it has a lot of exploration (just like the DS games), so they are making this for the DS/3DS audience.
17 million install base vs 2 million hmm which one to go for....
I wouldn`t mind a port. I want that Story!!
Well that bout sums up anything i was gonna say.
And yet the PSP got Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles remake: http://i50.tinypic.com/asep... They might as well come out an say "the Vita ain't doing so hot right now, so we opted for the for the more popular hardware" instead of feeding us horse dooky.
absolutely. it appears that developers want the industry driven for them now and have forgotten that they are the people that are supposed to drive it
Pretty much. They'd be all over porting this to the Vita if the console was doing better at retail.
Psp got a remake. The ds got 3 original games. The market is there on the 3ds both in consoles sold and in fan precedence. It isn't on the vita.
And the gameboy advance before that also got 3 original games. The most popular of them getting a sequel on the DS.
You're also splitting your user base. Ultimately i think Capcom's efforts on 3DS have shown the way for these other third-parties (i mean the ones who haven't gone insane for App Gaming).
As someone who doesnt own a Vita but owns a 3DS...I think mirror of fate looks really underwhelming..
Yeah, it looks like a PSone game.
Lol I wouldnt go that far... Just not a fan of the 2.5D thing, and it looks a bit...cartoony. Not as dark or gothic as the older ones.
and that hurts the game how? I've played all the DS castlevania games and they all looked like snes games. That didn't stop them from being great.
@bitboi I almost gave you a disagree because the DS games aren't great, they are AMAZING! Order of Ecclesia is (imo) the best castlevania game ever (and yes, it has snes graphics, I coud care less about that).
I didn't mean my comment in a bad way. He said it looked "unimpressive", I thought he meant the graphics. I don't care about bad graphics as long there is meat to the gameplay.
@Hisiru I agree. Order of Ecclesia, I thought, was the best Castlevania game to date!
We cant judge the game just yet.. It might be the 2nd game other than revelations thats worth buying on the 3ds.. I think its doing the whole "TEEN" rated thing tho.. I like castlevania bloody & evil as SOTN.. The ds versions were awesome games but lacked the fluidity & pixel squirting gore that the PS1 version had.. I hope its good but im not holding my breath for mercury steam on this one.. LOS2 i definitely will keep an eye on
Cop-out, pure and simple.
Since I loved LOS I hope this game from 3ds down the road with hit pen xboxlive just because the story will make a lot more sense. And I am not into a handheld consoles
Don't think so. Nintendo probabaly has some kind of publishing license on it. You might see it on the WiiU.
That's all fine and good, but you'll be losing money since not everyone will be buying it on 3DS (which means not at all). And that includes myself. But I don't even think I want THIS game on the Vita since it'd most likely be a direct port that doesn't fully utilize the Vita and all it's features/power. I'll wait for Konami to make a new Castlevania game for the Vita. The 3DS can keep this game.
Never those the entire population of consoles owners ever purchase one game. People will buy this game, the question is how much compared to every 3Ds owner? And since they decided to make it exclusive and not create a port then we lose out on the answer to which handhled will sell the most.
Its not a port at all.
funny thing is that i did not knew about this game and i could not care less
it's funny how so many quickly write it off cuz it's not on a system they do not own. Plus haven't even played or seen the game in person. Because it's on a system you don't own or like, you immediately say it's crap, cartoony, doesn't look good etc? what kind of logic is that? Another thing that's funny is how some folks says sales would be better if it were on Vita. Now is that a definite fact? I highly doubt it.
I would be more willing to buy it on the Vita then I would on the 3DS. I have both consoles and soon will own a white Vita and a 3DS XL. Also if you watch the ending of the Konami Pre-E3 event and watch E3 on Spike, G4 or Gametrailers, you would have seen some gameplay of the game. I think the only reason people think it will sell better on the Vita becuase Nintendo consoles have never been geared to the hardcore gamer as the Vita, Ps3 or 360.
All castlevania games on the DS sold well. The idea it's not going to sell is laughable.
Why isn't Assassins Creed,Silent Hill,MVC3,Street Fighter VS Tekken or Soul Sacrifice on the 3DS? See I can ask why a lot of games aren't on the 3DS too.
It wouldnt be able to handle the graphics, if they they were going to put them on the 3ds there going to have to make the games 2d and render down the graphics. Well thats what i think
to be honest i can see street fighter vs tekken on 3ds lol i could care less for assassins creed the call of duty of action games
yes the vita is geared toward the hardcore but yet why are they not buying the system? That system has nothing but hardcore titles, had alot of games during launch but yet is not moving. The hardcore is not a reliable audience. But on the other hand, you've several 2d castlevania games released on the gameboy & DS. There obviously was a large enough audience there to support those "hardcore" games, otherwise they'd stop making them all for nintendo's handhelds.
I'm thinking that they'll put Lords of Shadow 2 on vita
I love when people say Children play 3ds and adults only play vita.when for me its different.I'm a adult hardcore gamer and i love my 3ds and So do 6 of my adult friends.cause we don't have to worry what people think is cool. meanwhile the only people i ever saw with vita was kids 16 or under.my littler cuz is 15 and he got a vita cause he thinks its the most hardcore handheld with the most core games.and him and his little friend thinks it the cool system.so i'm starting to think thise site is full of those kind of 16 year old kids who are still at that young Age that plays the system he or she thinks is the cool thing to play instead of what's fun to play.
I'm 28 years old with a Vita. Your distinction of adults playing what they want then saying you only see kids playing Vita because it's "cool" is just silly. Maybe they find it fun rather than cool and maybe they don't care for what's on the 3DS just as you don't care what's on the Vita. This site is full of people praising Nintendo and dissing Sony so your assumption is wrong.
ur mixed up this site is all s over hate for nintendo fail this and fail this nintendo cheating fans that nintendo robing fans. has mario had enough? thats all i see on this site oh man when 3ds first came out all say its gona fail yet vita sells a 1000 systems a week and ya all have hope for it hmmm
While both 3DS and Vita can appeal to different demographics, it is pretty shortsighted not to admit the 3DS is more geared to a younger audience, and as a result it has a younger user base. Btw i'm 42 and a happy vita user.
I am 21 and a proud vita owner.Alot of the other students on campus own a ps3, vita, 360, or beast as gaming computer. You can fit all the students on campus who owned a ds, 3DS, or Wii in a smart car lol. I own a 3DS but im one of the few.
Amazing that you know every one on your campus and exactly what they owned
Really not that absurd at all. I'm an RA so I get to do room inspections on my for the guys in my building. I mean I guess I'd have to ask the female RAs what kind of video game the girls rooms has but in alot of the girls rooms I have been in the most they got is a cell, laptop, camera, and iPod.
"I wanted to do a 2.5D 3D game, and that’s why we choose the 3DS" And yet most 3DS gamers don´t use the 3D feature, so all his "2.5D 3D" is just pointless.
Most gamers? Basis?
I smell lazyness and bullshit
oh well, missed opportunity for these fellas.
Lot of BUTTHURT in this thread. You get a COD spin off we get a new 2d Castlevania. You guys love COD, at least you pretend to because you think it will sell 10 million vitas then you will go back to making lame COD jokes and bashing it. The ds has a history with Castlevania (nintendo also). Its an obvious choice like mgs for a sony platform. I kinda wish it would be on vita also so more people could enjoy it but oh well, thats why i own both. Its funny though cause if this was on vita only with the exact same graphics you guys would be so excited and bragging everywhere but on the 3ds its kiddie and cartoony.
This game may suffer the fate of Shinobi 3d. All talk no walk. If this game ends up in the bargain bin the devs will look foolish for speaking about the 3d effect that they wanted to take advantage of and all that. They should concentrate on just making a good game period and not speak about visual effects being the sole reason for it not being on the PS Vita.
Funny, I was just thinking the same thing as I was scrolling further and further down. I'd just go one step further and think that maybe the 3D effect is all it really has going for it?
too bad about shinobi 3ds, though it's a good game, maybe sometimes too challenging, but still good
Woulda loved to play this on the Vita...
It would have been nicer in a sense on Vita, in terms of graphics, but I understand why he chose the 3DS. I love the 3D effect on the 3DS, it gives you depth perception that works great on most titles. If the 3D helps the 2.5 veiw then hey let it be. I'm sure that a Vita version of their own will hit one day, for now here's hoping the 3DS version will be great. Check out the 27 minute demo. It really looks promising... Metroidvania with LOS combat! Seems like a win for me.
wow lord sloth you are right this is pro nintendo site and anti Sony.lol this why everyone with a brain hates this site.because you sony gamers will make Stuff up to sounds better our right. I'm a asshole cause i keep reading nintendo stories on this site and think it will get unbaised comments after.but everyday some Sony fan will come and trash nintendo even thought out had nothing to do with them like yinz are jealous or scared of 3ds and wii-u. If yinz loves Sony so much that's all should Care about.unless your multi console gamers why do you care about nintendo stuff for unless your just jealous.i never have to read a Sony story unless they trash nintendo.I'm a nintendo gamers so that's what i read and worry about.i just don't g get the need to worry about nintendo If you like Sony. I can give a shit about Sony cause i don't item there systems.so its seems like there's just a bunch of jealous gamers on this site.
