Darkstalkers Resurrection Awakens In February

By Spencer . October 23, 2012 . 4:08pm

When Capcom announced Darkstalkers Resurrection at the New York Comic-Con earlier this month, they only provided an “early 2013” release window. This week’s Famitsu magazine says Darkstalkers Resurrection will be available on February 7, 2013. That’s a Thursday because Sony Computer Entertainment Japan usually updates the PlayStation Store on Thursdays. We’re guessing the Xbox Live Arcade version will come out on February 6.


Darkstalkers Resurrection will cost 2,990 yen ($37) in Japan. As previously detailed, Darkstalkers Resurrection is a downloadable bundle that will include updated versions of Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3. Both games will have online play and other new features.

    I know it’s a very common thing and hardly new, but the difference of price in gaming between the US and Japan still surprises me to this day. Glad to have a (currently) finalized date though! VSav will pretty much round out the collection of having every fighter I could possibly want on my 360! :D

      I’m sure they would welcome lower prices (as would I, since I import a lot from Japan too), but alas, that is not to be.

    So long wallet. It was nice to see you not empty while it lasted.

    Man, over double the price of the US versions. Oh well. At least it sounds like that’ll be the release window for the US version, since XBLA/PSN games release around the same time for both JPN & US.

    Shame this didn’t make it in Halloween in Japan; despite that, I’m glad Japan will get this game.

    PS: I hope this won’t get released in Valentine’s Day in Japan, given the implications…
