Darkstalkers Resurrection With And Without A Filter

By Ishaan . October 24, 2012 . 11:40pm

Darkstalkers Resurrection on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network will come with filters that you can use to tweak the look of the game. Capcom showed an example of this off today. Here’s what the game will look like with no filters:



And here’s what it looks like if you use the Crisp filter:



As previously reported, Darkstalkers Resurrection also has a vault of unlockable concept art where you can unlock artwork using Vault Points. Here’s two examples of artwork that you’ll find:



Darkstalkers Resurrection is slated for release on February 7th, 2013.

    I think I’ll use crisp myself. Great art either way though.

    No filter for me! I’ve played the game too long without one to start using one now! Awesome that they’re using art from CvS and… Capcom Fighting Jam… for the galleries though. 

  • I love how people were going nuts before cause they thought that they’d have to use the weird arcade screen border/filter to get the sprite-based graphics instead of the crisp ones. Good to see their fears are now alleviated.

    Darkstalkers is supposed to be pretty great, right? Might have to get this. I’m pretty terrible at fighting games though.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    I’ll be going with a filter, myself.

    Is it weird, btw, that I look at that artwork and, even years after the artist officially became a Capcom artist, I still think of it as SNK art?

    • Kibbitz

      Not weird at all. I actually think of him as Shi N Kiro, always =P

  • And only again…barely a difference so i’ll just stick with no filter…cuz its doesn’t matter

      So you never played the recent JJBA game? Because there was a HUGE difference while playing it. The sprites looked really blocky, the filter made them look smooth and hand-drawn. I usually love sprites, but JJBA HD looked awful while playing with the sprites in comparison.

        Are we looking at the same JoJo’s? They looked exactly the same. The filter in that game was so lazy.

        • DiosFancifulRomp

          Ah, I see, you didn’t play them.

          • Nemesis_Dawn

            Or maybe they’re still using tube TV’s or maybe really small screens. I know on an old school tv, there isn’t much difference, but on a large HDTV, it’s night and day.

    My reaction to this:

  • I looked at this screen shots and the only think I could think to myself was:
    “Damn. I can’t believe they haven’t made a new DarkStalkers for so many years!”
    These games are gold.

  • Well the no-filter in real game clearly looks much better than in this screenshot, they just distorted and stretched the image for some reason wich made all the pixels go wild. I won’t be playing with filters anyway, no detail loss for me. Pixel art love mode, engage!

  • Gigawings

    I dunno, I prefer the one sans filter. It feels right and had drawn. 

    The filtered one looks too clean.
