Rumour: Darkstalkers 4 In Development


    Darkstalkers 4 has been in development since last year with Street Fighter producer, Yoshinori Ono, supervising the project, a report at Venture Beat claims. The game, according to Venture Beat, uses a modified version of the Street Fighter X Tekken engine, which itself is based on the Street Fighter IV engine.


    The information comes to Venture Beat via the same source that leaked details about Resident Evil 6 to them earlier this year, indicating that the rumour might indeed be accurate.


    Recently, Capcom filed a new trademark for Darkstalkers after Ono teased at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con that “Darkstalkers aren’t dead”. Perhaps we’ll hear further word of Darkstalkers 4 at Capcom’s “Captivate” event in April or E3 2012 in June.
