i think capcom took to long to bring out this game. Wonder when they going to release a port to the Mega Man X or Legends series.

Darkstalker fans, look forward to a brand new Darkstalkers in the near future. They did the same thing with MvC2/MvC3 and ST2/SF4. Gauge interest with an older game before releasing the new one.

this looks so fun

but I hope single player is not hardcore only

beat em ups are sometimes hard to learn combos if you have learning difficultys

@4 It wasn't ever 1600 msp, some clown brought that rumour up here last time darkstalkers news was posted and was quickly proven wrong by links to capcom-unity saying it was 1200 msp months ago.

Out of interest, as someone who's been involved in the Darkstalkers franchise on and off (I helped get it out of the door on the PS) I'm interested in what version of 3 this set contains.. is it the Vampire version 2 that added all the characters from all the games into the third game or the "pure" arcade release?

Incidentally, why the hell can I not link my GT to my profile.. I've tried everything!!

I want this, but I don't want to spend 1200 for this. I can wait until this drops to 600 or 800.

@9 I can't imagine they'll do the smaller version of 3. It just wouldn't make much sense. People would be upset to lose out on a complete version, but I doubt many will complain to get the bigger console port version. Then again, that's what happened with Soul Calibur 1...

Is this pretty much gonna be Vampire Savior 2 but with online play and a few extra modes?
Still play this game from time to time on my chipped Saturn! Back then this had the best animation of any 2D fighter and with the 4mb RAM cartridge (serious stuff) the players all had crouching animations, which was a first.

From what can gather this will be the PS2 port of Vsav and I think the arcade port of Vampire Hunter. I think they are still thinking about including Oboro and Shadow Gallon.

Morrigan pullin' dat 'tia and tamara' 2 0:47! XD

If buying this 2 game compilation on XBLA helps make a new Darkstalkers game even if only remotely more possible then i'd still pay! That new DRKS game would be GOD-like. 80
