Darkstalkers Resurrection Has Been In Development For A Year


Last week, Capcom announced Darkstalkers Resurrection for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The two-game bundle, which includes updated versions of Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, will be released in early 2013 with online play and other enhancements.


Capcom USA’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson, shared today on the company’s official forums that Darkstalkers Resurrection has been in development for about a year, and in planning for even longer. This is the reason the game hasn’t been announced for a Wii U release, Svensson clarifies.


When planning for Darkstalkers Resurrection began over a year ago, Capcom didn’t have an understanding of the Wii U’s online strategy. However, Svensson adds, requests for a Wii U version of the game have been noted.
