Darkstalkers Resurrection Is Getting A Price Cut In Japan Just In Time For Halloween

By Spencer . October 7, 2013 . 1:56am

bestpriceDarkstalkers Resurrection is a retail game in Japan and Capcom plans on re-releasing it with gaudy box art on October 31. The Best Price version will only cost 2,100 yen ($21), which makes just $6 more than a digital copy. Just a heads up for readers that prefer to have games on their shelf.


Resident Evil: Revelations for 3DS will get a Best Price! reprint on November 21 dropping a new copy down to 2,990 yen ($30) and Okami HD will become a Greatest Hits title in Japan on November 7 and sold for 2,990 yen ($30).

    This just in: “A slow news day”
    …But that is some sweet art on the cover :O

      The best price shrunken cover for Darkstalker actually looks kinda ugly.. also the bad thing w/ Okami HD on disc is that it’s still a full 8Gb install just like the digital d/l except it needs the disc to play. I originally bought the disc to save room on my HDD, but that’s not the case.. should just get d/l ver.

        Ohh… The size issue is a very good point, actually! (Upvote)

        The cover looks good to my eye, even though i’m fairly sure that it is just stitched up old pics.

        Yep, I would have bought Okami HD (I already own a European Wii and Japanese Wii copy – different controls, the credits are back) if they treated it like a retail game. >_>

        The thing which puts me off buying the Best Price Releases or Platinum releases isn’t just my collector’s side speaking but also how the design for the covers and discs look. >_>

        • Aoshi00

          I’m picky like that too, I would not stand to have the red greatest hits, yellow best prices, or sliver platinum in my collection, the art always got shrunken in the middle.. Like vesperia PS3, if I couldn’t get original new, I would get it used… I don’t care if re releases are cheaper, black label all the way if they are still called that lol… The install space and time needed just surprised and frustrated mewhen I popped in the okami disc.. also dark stalker was a small and old game, so cheaper digital is fine for me :)

    I still want a Darkstalkers 4… :/

      It’s safe to say Capcom is using Resurrection sales as a gauge for 4.

      • leingod

        That’s not a good way to gauge interest :/ … personally, I already own DS3 on PS1 and Chronicles on PSP so I don’t wanna buy it a third time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want a sequel :/

        • Just Tim

          I’ve seen it happen in other games too. Just look at Project X Zone recently, and Namdai is using it as an interest gauge for SRW, .hack, and other franchises not named Tekken.

    And no matter how well it sells, Capcom will still call it a failure….

  • Tom_Phoenix

    This is a pretty good deal, especially since the Japanese version has an English language option.
