Capcom makes a "Big" announcement at NYCC

Greetings Geeks!

Bear with me on this one Geeks because I promise there is a point.

So here's the scenario...

You're out on the town with your buddy. For the sake of the narrative, let's call him "Ono".

Ono says "Hey, dude. I've got this SUPER HOT chick that I'm dying to introduce you to."
So you're like "Yeah? Sounds cool. Let's go!"

Ono says "The club is all the way across town." So you start your journey and not 3 miles out, your car breaks down. So you try the subway, but the trains stopped running because it's so late. Ono insists that this chick is so HOT that it's worth it. So beaten but not defeated you try hitchhiking only to find out the dude that picked you up is some creeper who listens to John Tesh in the nude...while driving. So you walk it. It takes FOREVER to get there. But then, there it is! The club! The lights are beautiful and the music is jumping. You walk inside and Ono says "Oh, here she is!" You turn your gaze, filled with the excitement of a school boy. And then...you realize...the "SUPER HOT" chick...is your ex-girlfriend...in a new pair of shoes.

That's what just happened today in New York City. Your buddy Ono just took you through hell and back only to find out that the Darkstalkers you were expecting, were the Darkstalkers you've already had...several times over...in every position possible.

Capcom has announced Darkstalkers Resurrection for Playstation Live and Xbox Live Arcade. It's not a new game. It's the same damn Darkstalkers that you already own. A bundle that includes The Night Warriors (Vampire Hunter) and Darkstalkers 3 (Vampire Savior), on both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade sometime early next year.

I know I'm feeling pretty underwhelmed. How about you?


  1. The up side of this is although its not new Darkstalkers its still Darkstalkers which we love...also, this is Capcom's way of taking the temperature of the fan desire for a new Darkstalkers. It should be an absolute given that they do a new one, but, well you know how these things go.

  2. Yeah, I agree. Plus it is nice that they are getting the SF3 HD treatment. Still...a new Darkstalkers is a must. I need my John Talbain fix.

    1. Regrettably Capcom may not get around to actually giving us the fans a brand new Darkstalkers until the next round of gaming consoles (PS4/Xbox720) they waited to long on this, they should have given us what we want. Personally I think Darkstalkers and a new Strider <-(just my personal pipe dream) should have been their priority long before a Street Fighter vs. Tekken
