Darkstalkers Resurrection
Darkstalkers Resurrection Announced, Darkstalkers Are Not Dead Teased

Capcom has announced Darkstalkers Resurrection for Xbox Live Arcade and teased an all-new entry to the fighting game series.

Darkstalkers Resurrection is a modern refitting of the second and third game in the series - Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3.

Both titles come with horrible HD smoothing, plus perfectly acceptable challenges, Achievements, a spectator mode, YouTube sharing and anti-lag tech. It's out early next year.

Perhaps most excitingly of all, however, Capcom has also teased a new entry to the series. On stage at New York Comic Con last night, the publisher unleashed a CG trailer called, “Darkstalkers are not dead.” The publisher wants to make Darksiders 4, but intends to guage the popularity of Resurrection to see if it's a viable option.

So if you want a proper new sequel, get saving your MSP up for next year.

You can find both the Darkstalkers Resurrection trailer and the wobbly-cam “Darkstalkers are not dead” teaser below.

"get saving your MSP up for next year."

Good idea, Capcom will probably price it at 20,000msp

^ Yeah, fourth paragraph says "Darksiders 4" instead of Darkstalkers 4.

I never got to try these games, or really knew about them outside of the fact that Morrigan was a character.

Yes, yes, yes!!!!

I may be the only one who cares, but I do wish that the original game was included as I very much preferred the music in the first iteration over the second.

I'll buy Darkstalkers: Ressurrection if only cuz it'll make a Darkstalkers 4 in the future more likely to happen (also cuz I have fond memories of the previous Darkstalker games)!

Oh God...just imagining a Darkstalkers game with a fighting engine like the one in SSF4 and with ultra combos DAMN THAT'D BE AWESOME!
