[Source: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Facebook]Our TakeI love when publishers bring their handheld titles to other platforms, as it provides a wider audience for important series entries. Capcom released Resident Evil: Revelations (originally a 3DS title) on HD consoles, Square Enix is bringing two previously-handheld Kingdom Hearts games to PS3 this fall (although one is only arriving as a collection of cutscenes), and Konami has a track record of doing this with the Metal Gear Solid series. I haven't had the chance to play Mirror of Fate yet, and I'm looking forward to doing so in HD now.

Konami should make a Lethal Enforcers HD version with the kinect and eye.
Ooooo me likey the HD.
Resident Evil: Revelations is an amazing game for 3DS and it only costs 20 bucks. I didn't rebuy it when it came to consoles. Castlevanina 3D is a great game and its around 35 bucks. I won't buy it again just because of a HD upgrade. This is great for those who haven't played Castlevanina 3D before but for a current 3DS user... there isn't much motive to buy these games if they hit console form.
I didn't buy it for the 3DS yet, but I think I'll still get it for the original title. I usually mind when an exclusive for a system get ported to other consoles, but when you need to buy a handheld to continue the story (*cough*kingdomhearts*cough*)it just doesn't seem to fair to the original audience.
I wish more companies did this. Do you know how much I want to play Vita versions of the Persona games? In any case, I also heard great things about Mirror of Fate. I'll most likely be buying this once it comes to PSN.
Don't really care, I'm just gonna get the 3DS version anyways It's my favorite system.
Good to know.
