Originally slated for a February 7th, 2013 release on the Xbox Live Arcade, Darkstalkers Resurrection has been pushed into March, Capcom's Japanese division has announced.

Apparently, Capcom has chosen to delay the game to ensure that the quality of the arcade conversion is as faithful to the original games as possible, and that the online elements all work nice and smoothly.

Darkstalkers Resurrection collects the second and third games in the series, namely Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, adding smoothed HD visuals, anti-lag tech, a spectator mode, YouTube support, online play and achievements into the mix.

Darkstalkers Resurrection will now be heading to XBLA on March 14th, 2013.

March 14th is not XBLA release date but the retail, because Capcom doesn't plan to release XBLA/PSN version in Japan. (Thursday is retail release date in Japan, btw.) Of course, XBLA version for other countries should be out around that!

Why do these collections never have the first game included?

They should've included the first game. I will still be getting this game.
Played those two over and over again on my old Sega Saturn, need to find a streetfighter controller.
Wondering if they will do a Streetfighter Alpha collection and one with Pocketfighter.
That game was/is funny, it would be great to have a second one bundled with it.

#4 Actually, Night Warriors is just a revision (even though sequel) of the first game with the playable bosses though, so you're not missing much other than the same endings from the 1st game and extras.

So wait.. the PSP has a version with all three games on one disc and the x-box 360's version has only two? That seems strange to me.

@5: Agreed!

@9: They were ports, they didn't get the HD touch-up and...well you had to play it with the psp's crappy d-pad and tiny joystick so having an xbox controller or arcadestick to play it with alone is worth the purchase!

I strongly think there's something suspect about the ROMs they're using for DSR.

The injected HD select screens suggest these are not the arcade versions, even though they are running on GGPO.

Capcom have something up their sleeves.
