David Cox clarifies Castlevania: Mirror of Fate HD comments, dispels rumors

GE: "A few days ago, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate producer David Cox made a few comments that seemed to leave the door open to a future re-release on new platforms." (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Kind of breaks my heart a little that this won't come to the Vita. The 3DS is nice but I wouldn't sacrifice what the OLED can do for the game over 3D. If they made this game with the tools for HD, then it could of had a Vita version without the 3D effect. Oh well, I am still going to get it on 3DS but it's funny how some series can get strung across multiple platforms with individual games being exclusive.

Nintendo is where Castlevania got its fame, so its only right they have a few exclusives. Honestly there should be more Metal Gear exclusives too!!

Why are u making this a fanboy issue? The guy just wants to play on Vita instead because the screen is larger. He never said anything about Konami's relationship to Nintendo or Sony.

But that was HIS opinion. Now on to MINE: I on the other hand think 3rd parties on the Wii U are a waste since most people with a Wii U already have a PS3 or 360 with friends online that they already knew for years (Yeah I know we're not talking about Wii-U, but do you see HOW I flipped things to cause a fanboy war? The same way YOU just did it?). So, if u wanna start some flame-bait for no reason, then please accept my response as a counter-declaration to your fanboy war.

Metal Gear was on MSX first.

It was ported without Kojimas approval technically(This was before he became more recognized) to the NES and it was Horribly ported at that.

NES didn't make MG popular. MGS broke the gaming regime with stealth action on PS1 'First'....so, technically----......

Lol they're all just Sony nuts, if it's not a pro Sony post you'll get down voted.

Please remind me, where did MGS got its popularity and perfect review grades? Oh, that's right, psOne.

lol I love this:


@jimmyelgringito – Read the interview. It’s pure speculation and the word “probably” is a leap on the part of you and the journalist :)

It seems everything these days is "a leap on the part of you and the journalist" when it concerns Nintendo in some way or another

Cox is doing damage control since talking about HD versions on a non Nintendo system is a breach of the exclusivity.

After one year there would be a port (if the game is a bit successful, of course)

The damage was already done and I know they are not Capcom, but it gives people a reason to hold off on getting the game day one. I will get it on the 3DS, but will be looking forward to a port sometime in the future to hit the Marketplace and the PSN Store.

I believe the game will sell well, because the previous Castlevania games on Nintendo platforms have sold well for them.

Well Nintendo losing exclusives is nothing new. I bet this will release on another system sooner rather than later.

Very true.
Now they just to need to lose Monster Hunter and Dragon Quest exclusivity for home consoles and i'll be happy!

but they have an exclusivity deal which means to avoid any legal issues, they'll have to respect that. unlike Rayman Legends, they never had an exclusivity deal with Nintendo, Ubisoft themselves called it "exclusive" because they created the game from the ground up with the Wii U in mind.

For Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge, I doubt they had an exclusivity deal with Nintendo, it was published all over, except Japan, by Nintendo, and their exclusivity may have been a timed exclusive (short, but timed). anyway, if the timed exclusivity of NG3 for Wii U was at least 1 year, then we would be getting reports of a Team Ninja getting a breach of contract case. So it may or may not have been a timed exclusive at all, but rather a "2nd chance" for Team Ninja to test out the revision on a new platform like Wii U.
