Special version 3DS console (tuned), if Konami wants ..

A person who works in marketing for a major chain of distribution of electronic products (games, computers, appliances ...) has asked nintendo if they intend to make a special version (tuned) of the 3DS or 3DSXL with Castlevania (like they did with zelda ..). Many customers have asked, arises because many people buy the 3DS just for this game. Nintendo has not responded either yes or no, in principle very interested in them because it's the most important game of the 3DS in the next six months and want to top the sales and combat the console market second-hand (there are a lot in Spain ) with an exclusive model. But there is a major problem, Castlevania is not a franchise of Nintendo, and Nintendo has just done these things with their franchises (legal and economic suppose, because usually the pack console+game was cheaper.). But if they reach an agreement with Konami they are interested.

I would like to write to Konami Japan to seek to reach an agreement with Nintendo and release a 3DS model with the game in a pack.  :P

Only imagine they would do with these pictures we have... especially XL that has much more size cover.  :o :o :o

I don't think this game will sell as well as you're thinking. It'll have moderate sales, no need for a special version of 3DS for that.

Yes is very Hard, because Nintendo never lauch a special edition with a no own game. But is 25th anniversary (was 2011 but.), who khows...

Why do you have the same avatar than me?

...Er...

I don't think they'll do a special 3DS pack for MoF or another CV game. They only do it for Nintendo franchises, such as Zelda or Mario. But it would be cool.

I see images like this Pokemon, Zelda, Mario. And it breaks my heart just thinking that Castlevania does not have its own version ..

They have released special edition DS's for a few non-firstparty titles, so it's not impossible:


This game did not do that well.  It was a pretty OK game but nothing ground-breaking.


This game did much better.  Very cute game. :)

The 3DS has gotten some love as well... though it's usually in Japan.  They always get the coolest stuff, like this:


And this:


I would imagine that Mirror of Fate, if it did go the Limited 3DS Bundle release way, would do so in Europe, as MercurySteam's stuff is centered around Europe...

Pretty much as Jorge has said, it's not unheard of (outside of the states) for non-1st party titles to get special editions of consoles (heck Sony did limited edition Metal Gear themed PSPs and PS3s for the states too!) so a special CV version of the 3DS is plausible. Getting it stateside? Probably not, but as Jorge also pointed out a Euro only version is probably the most likely.

Though if we did get a special 3DS XL for MoF in the states, I would definitely buy one (though I already own a 3DS).

WoW did not know those models!. I guess it would come out only an Japan. I wish we could give Nintendo and Konami reaching interest in a special edition of the 3DS, it seems that if t must pack, it's something.

Even if there have been customized 3DS consoles for 3rd party games in the past, we're still talking about games like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and such. Castlevania is sadly enough not even half as popular as those franchises. But yeah, I guess it could happen. Especially since the first Lords of Shadow performed reasonably well, so maybe expectations for Mirror of Fate are a little bit higher than usual in this series recent history.

Still, there is a problem in making a sequel to a PS3/XB360 game and releasing it on a Nintendo handheld. It's an entirely new target audience. Most of us in here play on multiple different consoles and handhelds, regardless of the brand, but many of the people who'll buy Mirror of Fate may never even have played the first game. So I'm not sure how "strong" this game really is... Though Castlevania was reasonably popular on the DS, of course.

Same problem I have the zelda version who would have thought that konami is even having a thought of making a cv3ds version yet, I know one thing it would look 100 times better than that f-ing pikachu, or kingdom hearts one( how the heck is that series so popular and cv not it makes no freaking sense oh wait.....)

But on the other hand tobe gundam!!! That red one is hot  :)

Was there not a fire emblem bundle as well?

A person who works in marketing for a major chain of distribution of electronic products (games, computers, appliances ...) has asked nintendo if they intend to make a special version (tuned) of the 3DS or 3DSXL with Castlevania (like they did with zelda ..).

Is MoF that important? Then why release it right next to luigi's mansion that seems to be the talk of the town right now from my understanding  :o

It's pretty great-looking:
