Darkstalkers Resurrection

Capcom announces Darkstalkers Resurrection for XBLA, PSN

5:05 PM on 10.11.2012 // Jordan Devore

Bundle of Darkstalkers' Revenge and Darkstalkers 3

[Update: The official word from Capcom has come in. This package includes Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, not the original game, Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, as originally reported. The release date is still "early 2013," but they did give a price: $14.99 / 1600 Microsoft Points.]

Finally, we have the opportunity to write "Darkstalkers" and "Yoshinori Ono" in the same sentence without having to preface everything with a big rumor warning. Announced today by Capcom at a New York Comic Con 2012 panel, Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3 will be digitally bundled for release on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

Dubbed Darkstalkers Resurrection and due out later next year, this will be in line with prior Capcom re-releases of fighting games. You can expect online multiplayer and matchmaking, replay uploading to YouTube, a spectator mode, HD filtering, and more.

Maybe, just maybe, if this does well enough, Capcom will consider developing a brand new title in this series. I'm probably getting my hopes up, though.

New Digital Title Features Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3 with Updated Graphics and Robust Online Features

SAN MATEO, Calif. — October 11, 2012 — Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that the fan-favorite Darkstalkers® franchise is back and ready to take the fight to current gen consoles. Featuring a unique and colorful cast of characters, blended with fast-paced fighting action, Darkstalkers® Resurrection contains two games, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, that will be available to download in early 2013 for $14.99 on PlayStation®Network and 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

The two-for-one priced combo breathes new life into each game with a slew of features including robust GGPO-enabled online game play, HD graphical filtering with multiple viewing options, replay sharing, Spectator Mode, in-game achievements, Challenge/Tutorial Mode and an un-lockable vault filled with concept artwork, videos and more.

Players who want to face-off against their friends online are able to with GGPO-enabled online game play that helps create a virtually lag-free fighting game experience. Building upon the online system previously introduced in Street Fighter® III: Third Strike Online Edition and Marvel vs. Capcom® Origins, online game play now includes upgraded matchmaking with additional options such as region matching, ping lock and ping display.

While taking a break from competition, players have replay sharing and Challenge Mode at their disposal to help them hone their fighting game skills.  Replays can be uploaded to the game’s match server or directly to YouTube. The Challenge/Tutorial Mode contains trials to help players deepen their knowledge of the characters and their specific strategies. For those that prefer to learn from watching other people play, Spectator Mode and “Watch With Friends” allows players to watch games either live online or saved from previous matches. Players can discuss both live and saved games in real time.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"
