    Japan not getting game… made from Japan? Who could think of such blasphemy?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      They never get Advance War: Days of Ruin though.^_^

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        As expected of you (not an overused anime/manga phrase)
        I was waiting for someone to say this, but damn you’re fast!

        • DuskSharkEX

           Fun fact: Japan also never got Rolling Thunder 3.

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            Damn, well I knew I left myself open to various games that never got released there. Well now I know

    • Kibbitz

      The people who control sales and marketing? “Naaaah, no one in Japan could possibly be interested in MvC Origins!” =P

  • Now tht new. Its usually we frm out of JP tht don’t get JP games lol.

    off the topic here, but wouldn’t it be awesome if morrigan got her own game!?. but it’s not a fighting game, i’m thinking more like an rpg or a strategy game where we could explore a bit more about her story (as well as seeing demitri and other characters from darkstalkers) may exploring the world of darkstalkers (but the story has to be about morrigan).

    •  Ummm not really, sure learning more about the world and things in the Darkstalkers Universe cool but i rather it being limited to just Morrigan (especially with Demitri being one of the main characters).
      Then again…what else is there to know about Morrigan, i guess some but not much

      • xavier axol

        well i was just saying that ’cause morrigan is my favorite character from darkstalkers, but the general ideal would be exploring the darkstalkers universe.

    Capcom Japan needs to get it together.

  • Yuriangels

    Great now I feel dumb  buying Darkstalkers on the psn, but hey more darkstalkers

  • DanteMasamune

    I’m not a big fan of fighting games but buying Tekken Tag Tournament 2 & Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 made me more interested and I’m currently practicing in those games to get better. Still need practice. I most likely will pick this game up because I’m actually a fan of the characters and their design….mainly Hsien-Ko & Jedah.

    Since Capcom didn’t go the #MarvelZombies route this Halloween, looks like this is gonna be their de facto Halloween bash… :s
