A Sequel To The 3rd Birthday Would Be In HD, Says Nomura


imageTetsuya Nomura has been busy tweeting in the wee hours of the night about The 3rd Birthday. After reminding readers of how the game switched from mobile phones to PSP, Nomura discussed the possibility of a console version.


“In the case of a sequel can be made the next one will be a HD version.”


Earlier in the Twitter feed, director Hajime Tabata, discussed the relationship with Hexadrive the company who is co-developing the game with Square Enix. Hexadrive also handled Rez HD. Anyway, they had a multiplatform engine ready and wanted to make a HD console game. At first the studio weren’t interested in making a PSP title, but changed their minds after Tabata convinced them.


Nomura also addressed questions about a hardware bundle on Twitter. “I think there are no plans related to a bundle,” Nomura wrote. Nomura also said a playable demo of The 3rd Birthday is under consideration.


The same goes for downloadable Game Archives versions of Parasite Eve 1 and Parasite Eve 2. “In relation to PE 1, 2 for Game Archives, we’re looking into it, please wait a bit longer. In relation to connections with past titles, the timeline is the same, the setting is carried over, the story starting with this title has the feeling of being new,” said Nomura.
