“Darkstalkers Resurrection” brings Darkstalkers 2+3 to XBLA and PSN, Trailer Promises Challenge Mode,
It’s a good time to be a classic fighting game fan. Earlier this month, we got Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins, which brought back two arcade classics and now we are receiving a re-release of Capcom’s famous monster mash, Darkstalkers. Darkstalkers Resurrection, due out on XBLA and PSN early next year, will re-release The Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers III as a single package and will offer similar features to Streetfighter III: Third Strike Online Edition and Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins (improved online line matchmaking, ping display and lock, and YouTube replay upload).
Darkstalkers originally hit arcades in 1994 and created several classic Capcom characters, like Morrigan, Felicia, and Donovan. While I am excited about the release, it’s a shame that Capcom isn’t re-releasing the previously Japan-only game, Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection, which had ALL the games, as well as arranged versions of the Vampire Savior (Darkstalkers 3) games, including a new character. Still, it’ll be interesting to see how new players receive this game. Please share your thoughts in the comments below and keep following Blistered Thumbs for all the latest gaming news.
UPDATE: With the trailer now live, it seems that there will be unlockables as well as a challenge mode added to The Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3.
