A 3rd Birthday sequel would be in HD, says Nomura

Friday, 6th August 2010 10:10 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Square’s Tetsuya Nomura has said that any 3rd Birthday follow-up would be in high def.

“In the case of a sequel can be made the next one will be a HD version,” he said on the game’s Twitter.

Nomura also said a demo for the third Parasite Eve game, currently in the works for PSP, is under consideration.

There won’t be any hardware bundle for it, though.

Dropping more in a Twitter frenzy, the developer said there was a chance the first two Parasite Eve games could be re-released for PSN:

“In relation to PE 1, 2 for Game Archives, we’re looking into it, please wait a bit longer.”

The 3rd Birthday’s out at some point this year for PSP in Japan, with no western date yet.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    The speed this guy works at we’ll probably have HD handhelds by the time it comes out.

    Remember kids: when a japanese developer says “we are looking into it”, they mean: No, not going to happen.

    Peace walker, birth by sleep, 3rd birthday and so on…
    Can someone explain me why every psp exclusive would have to go on ps3?
    Wii owners don’t make the same with ds’ games!
    The truth is that psp’s real enemies aren’t ds’ owners but envious ps3 owners. :(
    Envious ps3 owners would be happy for the psp’s death. DX
