  • I almost thought there was a new Darkstalkers game… I guess that’s why they gave it such a misleading title. They’re not resurrecting anything, it’s a port

    • EdgeKun

      I’d argue that it’s a resurrection of the series to the fighting game circuit, so to speak. Vampire Savior is often praised on the competitive scene as being one of the best tuned and balanced fighters to date. (Combined with some fast + sick gameplay)

      If bringing back (to modern hardware) two of the greatest and most loved games in the series isn’t a resurrection, I’m not quite sure what is.

      • Kelohmello

        Hard to call it best tuned or balanced per say. It’s just got really great mechanics and gameplay. I mean… can’t really call a game balanced when you’ve got a character like Anakaris, who can’t pushblock and as a result is arguably the worst character in the game since some characters can just run really strong blockstrings and frame traps he can’t do anything about.
        Still, VSav is a good game and I hope people pick this up.

        • EdgeKun

          Note that I said *one of* the best. Not, *the* best. (I want to say that title belongs to the GG series, but I may be biased there)

          And yeah, I won’t refute that Anakaris is an absolute trash character, but that aside I thought he was the exception – not the rule. Got any links to the latest matchup charts? I’m actually curious to see just how far apart the character rankings are.

          • heh. ArcSys is horrible at tuning though. it took about 5 games to get it where it is, and #R(1.0) has worse tuning than basic X2 did. so 2.0 went back to X2 tuning. but at least it’s decently balanced in the current version.

    • I agree. It’s just a port, the name should have been something with”HD” at the end. I already have the games on PS1 and PSP, there is no way in heck I’m buying it again. They need to come out with a real sequel, that’d be nice.

    • Göran Isacson

      There are rumours and rumblings that Yoshinori Ono is working himself to the bone behind the scenes to get a Darkstalkers game made, but this is apparently going to act as a thermometer of sorts, casting an eye on how much demand there is for the franchise before the suits can give him the go-ahead with a brand new title.

  • EdgeKun

    Dammit Ish, you’ve heard me comment before how badly I want this. You guys aren’t make the wait any easier. >:C ( <3 )

  • I read somewhere that if this does well enough, Capcom may look into making a new Darkstalkers title for consoles. But Darkstalkers is one of those niche fighting games with a cult following, much like the Guilty Gear franchise.

    • AkuLord3

      You do know that Guilty Gear was on copyrights with Sega (i believe) until Arc System got it back, got nothing to do with being Niche and Arc would glady make a new game soon after with BlazBlue.

      • that goes back to when Sammy was the publisher. right after the merger, sammy though that using Sega’s name on it would gain the title more mainstream fame. never really worked out that way, though.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        I thought it was atlus

  • AkuLord3

    Oh Lilith you’re always my fav and way hotter than Morrigan ( Dat Ass~) and Jedah is the coolest

    • mpgeist

      I agree wholeheartedly.

    • CirnoLakes

      Delicious flat chest!

    • XiaomuArisu

      Lilith transforms everyone into closet lolicons XD

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    If I wouldn’t have played Darkstalkers 3 on the PSX and on the PSP I’d be hyped for this game but really, at this point I just want a new entry in the series~.

  • CirnoLakes

    YES. YES. YES!
