We knew it was coming, but during today’s Street Fighter X Tekken panel at the San Diego Comic Con, Ono and team announced that a new Darkstalkers game is in development. See the included image.

Update – Capcom’s Wes Phillips notes that they “have not announced a new Darkstalkers game”. This is just a teaser though, and I’m sure it means something is coming. Ono also mentioned that he wants to bring back the Street Fighter Alpha series in some way. Cross those fingers.

    I’d be more excited if Legends 3 hadn’t been cancelled, honestly.

  • 2dfightermf

    ……..2d or 3d…..

    • thearm05

      Please god 2d

      • PAO

        Agreed. I pray for godlike 2D for this game

    • Taito

      i don’t dislike 2.5d at all.. but screw this if it isn’t insane 2d, why even bring it back if it isn’t

    • truendymion

      LOL like they would even debate this. Of course its going to be 3D because they are either using SF4 engine or MvC3 engine.

      • Svenuser

        I think they mean 2D playing, not graphics.

        • Sexperienced.

          why would it be anything else but 2d playing. capcom have yet to make a game that plays like a typical 3d fighter.

        • Spectaa

          They aren’t. 3D playing makes no sense to anyone at this point, money is in 2D gameplay right now (for 2D based games anyway).

      • Doc Strange

        I think more importantly 2d would be too expensive for a project that most likely is squeaking by on approval as it is.

    • leileilol

      please god 3d

      2d won’t sell.

      • xRELLIKx

        *sigh* The reality is Darkstalkers sprites are SERIOUS art. Many 3S, but DS is INSANE!!
        Well likely never get anyone to do that kind of work in this day and age.

        But luckily, I personally don’t see 3D being that bad (if only they could buff the graphics from MVC3).

        • Sexperienced.

          its possible to make a 3d game look 2d if you cell shade it properly, we have yet to see this done for a fighting game but many cartoons do this (like futurama).

  • Mesoian

    WHO KNEW THIS WAS COMING?!? NO ONE KNEW THIS WAS COMING!!!!

    Oh man…This was the secret. They let UMvsC3 be their trojan horse while they managed to keep this secret.

    My god….It’s full of stars.

    • Rhio2k

      Calm down, Skeets lol

  • clue2025

    Well there goes another classic that’ll be ruined.

    • krknight

      well, any new iteration by ono, yes. on the other hand, they’ll also likely release VS to the consoles prior to the new DS release as well. that’s a plus.

  • Ebbs

    Please no built in comeback mechanics *prays*

  • NervousTwitchyGuy

    FUCK YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! :DDDD

  • whenmotion

    This makes me happy. Hopefully the battle system will be akin to vampire savior.

  • Shin Akuma

    Only a matter of time before Capcom decided to make VS4. I see them ruining a good franchise. Probably gonna make it like SF4 and make it 3D + scrub friendly.

    =(

    • Shin Akuma

      DS4*… not VS4.

      • EAA575

        No Japanese version? :O

    • Siefer

      I am glad someone else realizes this. You people need to wake up, even if a new Darkstalkers is made, it’s going to be made in the same vein as SF IV and MvC 3, which I’m sure will make all the DS fans “happy”.

      • cjguigni

        Yes! Wake up, people!! Remember that Capcom ruined SF and MvC and absolutely nobody plays those games anymore! The community has been completely reduced ever since those games were released and Capcom is on the verge of bankruptcy for being so stupid D:

        • Svenuser

          ^This.
          Games change over time. People need to get over it.

          • Trodamus

            ^ This.

            Stop acting like there’s anything sacred in about a franchise that hasn’t seen a new game in 14 years.

    Number of people who replied to this story who have actually played a Darkstalkers game with another human being: 0

    • MWisk_2

      Pretty much. But hey, they might have had brothers back then.

    • clue2025

      I’d say maybe 3.

    • voodoochild346

      hey hey. playing vampire savior on kaillera with mame 32 counts dammit!!

      • MegaMettaurX

        Why would you use Kaillera? It works a shit ton better on GGPO.

    • Razing Phoenix

      Maybe I just want a chance to play a DS game…

    • Squire Grooktook

      Hey

      Ggpo exists and allows you to play on it.

      /this comment.

    -_-

  • kingsharkboi

    the fighting game second renaissance continues

  • Kloakenstein

    Wow, from the reaction here I say it was a power move.

  • Master Chibi

    oh man

    I CANT WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO COME OUT, TO SEE PEOPLE COMPLAIN IT WAS DUMBED DOWN THEN TALK ABOUT HOW FANTASTIC THE ORIGINAL GAMES WERE EVEN THOUGH NO ONE REALLY PLAYED THEM ANYWAY~

    I’m hype, for now~

    • P. Gorath

      lol…bet on it

    • Dances with Ninjas

      I can’t wait for the SF4 engine to make all of the characters look like horrible hybrids of whatever monster they’re supposed to be and gorillas.

    • Squire Grooktook

      Speak for yourself.

      Every time I visit the Vampire Savior Room on GGpo it’s packed. Not to mention there are TONS of tournament videos on youtube.

  • woodenTEETH

    Playstation Vita exclusive!

  • clue2025

    I don’t expect much from this. I liked crack speed and ridiculous combos. I don’t expect any of that in the new one.

    • clue2025

      Ridiculous execution*

  • MWisk_2

    Now all my favorite fighters will be back and hopefully they’ll do well in the future. All that’s left for me is that SNK gets a boost and revives Samurai Shodown in the near future.

    • TheWretchedCrow

      They’ve already done that. Sadly the game was god awful.

  • btfu88

    Can’t believe this actually happening

  • GMR4LFE

    These comments alone are enough entertainment. But seriously…2D for the love of the renewed fighting scene.

  • Juri Licious

    I have to post here to be a part of history!
    I’ll be getting this. Hopefully it’s 2d.

  • Blaise

    Would have prefered CVS3 announcement, but never played Darkstalkers back in the day, definitely want to give the series a try with the new game.

  • Gorehound

    GODDAMNIT CAPCOM!!!!

    STOP GIVING ME BONERS THERE SO MUCH THAT I CAN HANDLE IN ONE DAY!!!

  • magocyber

    Looks like we are going to see Daigo beasting again. and for the record I did played this game.

    • Blaise

      Daigo? What about SAAAAAAKOOOOOONOOOOOKOOOO

  • Gaijin87

    I’m going to buy 200 copies so I can wallpaper my room in my parent’s basement

  • sandwichofdoom

    *To a heavenly choir*

    Yesssssssssssssssss!!!!!!

  • Valkerion

    B.B. Hood will hunt again!

  • Dedemaru

    I love Darkstalkers’ roster. I hope they add new character with this addition in the series.

    Personally, I hope it’s 3D, like Street Fighter IV. Yeah, 2D would be cool, but I’d like to see the Darkstalker characters in 3D.

  • mega_buster

    why is capcom so godlike? first all this umvc3 news then poison in sftk now this feels like the 90’s all over again

  • sandwichofdoom

    *To a Heavenly Choir*
    Yesssssss!!

  • raisec

    Street Fighter III 4th Strike is next!

  • sandwichofdoom

    Oops double post

  • Evaded_Death

    omfg this is greatest news in a while now please 2D.

  • Rhio2k

    YAY, oh, wait, fucking Ono. Goofy shit galore and chubby retards bumbling around in the backgrounds. 1 ES per character, and EX moves are now ultras (and only 1 can be used after being selected after character select).

  • entrerix

    someone let snk know its ok to make another garou now.

    • craigUK

      =) could you imagine if that got announced next?

      i eagerly await more insight into this revelation !

    • CannonSpike

      Oh my giddy aunt that would be too much. Seriously, my left ventricle would burst.

      DARKSTALKERS WOO!

      *regains composure*

      Awesome.

  • Rhio2k

    Oh, yeah: and shitty sf4-esque (possible just re-skinned) models.

  • Lestatx

    Capcom said “we have not revelaed a new darkstalkers game”…. wtf does this mean?

    • Data Beast

      It looks like this was a botched publicity stunt. They were probably planning on officially announcing it at TGS and this was meant to be a ‘hint’ to get people hyped.

  • mikesaysno

    holy fuck i love you ono

  • Runefaust

    Hellz yes!!!

  • Rock Steady

    so many people are so excited about a game they played for 10 minutes on ggpo, and quit after realizing it was a hard game to play…..

    this game will be trash…enough said

  • 8minsfromsol

    Let us pray morrigan gets a new sprite.

    • ha-dou-ken

      LOL to this.

      +1 to this. Tired of that 16 bit shit.

  • Noble Cactus

    Aw man, why you guys so negative?

    http://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/9/9e/Heavy_positivevocalization01.wav

    This just stole about 80% of my UMvC3 hype.

  • Noble Cactus

    And Capcom, may I make a suggestion?

    DON’T FUCK UP HSIEN-KO THIS TIME

    Thank you.

  • janoDX

    Golden age of Fighting games pt. 2

  • tod

    Please Capcom, PLEASE CAPCOM. Don’t ruin this series with bullshit comeback mechanics and noob-friendly/simple mode bullshit . PLEASE.

  • kingsfall

    FUCK YES.

  • Last Dragon

    The moment I get into VS on GGPO and start going to Brunzwick Zone to play this at the ARC, literally just last weak I started playing Darkstalkers. This gets announced.

    THEIR IS A GOD!
    Perfect timing too, the VS machine’s 1st player stick is officially dead.

  • -SKETCH-

    now we just need a rival schools and may peace made among the fighting game community

    • dark-hybrid

      Heres hoping for project justice 2

  • More4YourBucK

    Fuck this It doesn’t need to be made! Nearly half the people that posted on the front page don’t even play the game on ggpo, and don’t enter the tournaments. Fuck this false hype people have placed in here. This game will be ruined in ways us players will never see the likes of day. Fuck you Ono, God damn -___- This is gonna be a sad day…

    • kingsfall

      What the hell are you talking about? One thing has nothing to do with the other. You want to keep playing VS on GGPO? Go right ahead. Just because some of us haven’t been playing VS for 13 years doesn’t mean there isn’t hype for DS4.

      You can’t ruin a game that isn’t even out yet, keep playing VS forever and pretend DS4 doesn’t exist. No one else will care.

  • Elbandido321

    MY WORK MOOOONEEEEEYYY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Flashy

    Umm…wait…YESSSSSSSSSSS!!

    Though I only played the Psp one…..>_>

  • kylednotm

    Here’s hoping that’s the title of the game:

    Darkstalkers are Not Dead

  • Good guy

    Pro tip: don’t buy the first version of this game.

    • truendymion

      YEP!

  • MowatMan

    Capcom are picking up their slack.

  • Bloody Riot

    Waiting for the official announcement (god knows when that will be) *thumbs up*

  • Last Dragon

    People need to take chilax and lay up off of the fact that the GGPO scene isn’t that big and that many don’t play on it. I play on GGPO like every other day and I can admit that a lot of people don’t know about it and just don’t wanna sit and play illegal roms on the computer and that goes for more than just Vampire Savior. I can tell you that mainly hardcore fighting geeks play any ANY of the games on their and the skill level is way to high for some noob to step in and try and get good the “right way”. So just be glad that we’re getting a new game and chill the fuck out and let the scene grow.

  • sandwichofdoom

    I only have the psp version,so no ggpo experience for me.

  • zenblaster

    This is awesome news.hopefully its a massive 2d fest.and fuck everybody who says nobody plays this game.I have been going to 30 man plus tourneys for this on the evo circuit all year.get hype

  • Tim Static

    PLEASE NOT LIKE SF4! PLEASE GOD! OH NO PLEASE NOT ONO

  • truendymion

    Now they need to announce KI3! C’mon you know you want it!

    • lg 3V07UT10N

      I am so happy about this now alpha and project justice 2… an hell yeah I want another KI3 so bad… wouldn’t it be a xbox exclusive tho?

  • Nitro Noodlez

    I must change my pants now.

  • Koenigg

    Is this real life?

    • TheWretchedCrow

      No. This is just Fanta-Sea.

  • HotGarbage

    I have faith that this game will come out. I mean MML3 went down so wel-oh wait shit.

  • REALPLAYER

    i’m interested to see what ono does to the game and system, as i’ve NEVER liked DS or VS outside of the visuals. i disagree with everyone on this being 2D. DS was a VERY pretty game (for its time) with colorful, active, and busy backgrounds. 3D could only make that element luster even more. this game didn’t have a huge reception here in the states, and i don’t think a 2D game can survive in todays market anyway. models may be the way to go. we shall see.

  • btfu88

    I really hope this game doesnt use chain combos like umvc3, and sfxt, I really enjoy the games that take longer to “master” though thats not the right word but I hope I don’t get flamed. Just want something that isnt abcd blah blah

    • Scifiwasabi

      VS has always had chain combos.

    • kingsfall

      The DS series is one of the first (if not THE first) to have magic series combos. It’s also probably one of the deepest fighting games Capcom has released. Execution barriers aren’t really depth.

  • Exalted-1

    And how will they dumb this game down for the masses?

  • bojack13

    Hopefully Morrigan will actually be useful in tournaments in this one. Also, not ruling out a Darkstalkers HD remake or some bs like that. Not expecting a brand new sequel or remake at this point.

  • gold163

    watch it get canceled like MML3

    • jedpossum

      Darkstalkers 4(ACE) has already been canceled so many times.

  • migrations

    SO COOL!

  • HighOnPCP

    holy shit this years SDCC is INSANE for fighting games
    the last time i was that hype was probably when (S)SF4 was announced.
    also i hope they do another alpha
    but UMvC3 got me hype the most…and there is still 8 characters left we will get so see in action…and all the new moves for the old cast daaaaaaayuuumn
    HYPE

  • mega_buster

    you guys do know that its gonna play different than the other VS games like how recent capcom fighters are where it has a simple button layout but is about creating crazy stuff like mvc3 and sftk is an Iam sure its gonna be 3d models doubt capcom is gonna make new sprites lol so dont get mad if it isnt what you liked many of you guys havent even played darkstalkers long enough

  • Violent Ryo

    No surprise here, and graphics will not be 2D so no reason for too much excitement for me.

    This coming from someone who actually played the DS games in the arcades.

    Wake me up when they announce Capcom vs SNK 2 HD remix or CvS3.

    • RedEther

      Such a spoiled child. I guess your still stuck in 2D>3D era.

      Fighting games are awesome in 2D or 3D.

  • KillaB43

    Baby Bonnie all day baby. Now I’m not so let down she wasn’t in Ultimate MvC3

    • mkryu

      She would have been great against Chris

  • NyuBomber

    The update doesn’t phaze me in the least. It’s all hype building.

  • imdahman

    Just remember not to buy the game until it’s 5th edition is out.

    • aznable_yuy

      ^fact

  • WINBACK

    So much hype from a lot of people who are going to be pissed in a year or two at how this game turns out. Besides, people are more interested in how Morrigan and Felicia’s titty action is going to pan out and not so much the gameplay.

  • PhinnyCupcakes

    I don’t care for this.

  • bruce leeroy

    back to raptor and donovan!!!

  • The Ace of Knaves

    HOLY SHIT YES

  • Alegretto

    HOLY GUACAMOLE!

    OHSHITOHSHITOHSHITOHSHIT!!

  • TURNABOUTMVC

    I want HD 2d graphics so the classic combat system of transformations isn’t hindered, but too many new gamers would bitch and moan about it not being up-to-date. So, that being said. Get ready for a dumbed down version of Darkstalkers.

  • fujichan327

    the only thing on my mind now is what type of creatures are left to use as new characters

  • geehhdogg

    Like everyone else who’s been waiting for this great news…I CAN’T WAIT FOR DARKSTALKERS!! As far as characters are concerned, i’m pretty sure Capcom will bring back the band and some new ones fo sho. But in case you wanted to see some possible character ideas for the next Darkstalkers game, here’s a cool sight that has just that

  • DelPiero

    Ohhhhhh shit !!!!! WTF Capcom!? you can’t toy with someone’s emotions just like that !
    I was pissed with the MML3 affair and the fact that my MvC3 “collectors edition” is a freaking beta.
    But for Darkstalkers I’ll buy 3 copies each for no matter how many versions the bastards release, only so they dont keep the series in limbo again…

  • YanDaMan

    Yes, they cancel Megaman Universe and Legends 3 for more fighters using overused 3D visuals instead of 2D ones like BlazBlue or KoF XIII, which will then receive another half dozen “upgrades” to milk more cash, something they cant do with Megaman.

    Predictable.

  • DTJB

    I suck ass at VS compared to any decent player, but hell yeah. More Darkstalkers.

  • Deddjay

    Wow. I wonder if I’m burning all my good luck with all these announcements. Still though..this was unexpected and WELCOME!!!! JUST TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!

    Capcom v. SNK now!

    • The Ace of Knaves

      Why would you post that here?

  • less

    Takayuki Iwai, Yuki Iwai, Hideki Okugawa and / or Akari Kaida, please.

    As much as I’d prefer sprites over polygonal models, I really don’t expect them in modern Capcom fighting games whatsoever β€” and I’m totally all right with that β€” but if they’re capable of gathering a few of the classic composers from the CPS2/3 days, that’d truly be a nod to the past and in the right direction, in my ears’ opinion.

    • MegaMettaurX

      Omg. This. Shit they should just bring back the Alph Lyra group. SF/Fighting game music would be shit if it wasn’t for them.

  • Rioting Soul

    Where the fuck is Killer Instinct 3? Don’t be late to the party Microsoft, master of Rare.

  • thezippiggy

    it’s like a dream come true! and hopefully that dream does not get ripped away like MML3…

    • leileilol

      MML3 was a fail for it’s “Design by committee” approach which was never successful for anybody. Surely, DS4 wouldn’t be down that awful path.

  • SupahRreem

    I think a really nice upscaled 2d model like blazblue or kof13 would do darkstalkers some justice either way im happy either way cuz its a new fighting game. JUST DONT DO IT LIKE MEGAMAN LEGENDS 3 CAPCOM PLZ OH LAWD!

  • samuraipizza

    does this mean we will get some kind of Darkstalkers X Alpha? that would be fucking awesome

  • ISLEDGEI

    Wow. I lived long enough to see this! It better be ported to the Arcades……

  • EDDUR

    I wonder how many of those commented above me never even played DS.

    • CannonSpike

      Fair enough, but so what if they never played it before. Now they have the opportunity, and the fandom grows.

  • Orokun

    All i can say is… ABOUT DAMN TIME!

  • CHomes

    Capcom, lately you seem to be in the business of making nerds orgasm, so make me too, Rival Schools for ps3/360 make it happen.

  • CrimsonMoonMist

    Lookin’ forward to what’s the come.

  • Son of a Gun

    Ono wants to bring back everything before he makes something ‘new’ I guess.
    Still, looking forward to this.

  • AzureDragon

    Finally

  • Fulaani

    lol at all these dickheads paying lipservice to darkstalkers. if you’re such a big fan why don’t you play the game?

    anyways, 0 trust in capcom to make this game worthwhile. the only good thing that can come out of this is a good Vampire Savior port on XBLA to build up hype.

  • xXMr.MSCXx

    3d fat slow version of DS…….nice way to spit on the series legacy

  • kevbrown313

    Finally! Now all we need is Red Earth, JoJo’s Bizairre Adventure, Rival Schools, Star Gladiator, Power Stone, and Heavy Metal: Mars Matrix updates/reboots.

  • KowtowRobinson

    Said they haven’t announced a NEW darkstalkers game, wonder if they’re just gonna HDR one of the Savior games then?

  • Sexperienced.

    i’m more excited about the alpha series coming back.

  • TaeKwonFloe

    Can you say Sasquatch? Thank you please.

  • Schmidtnurface

    With the recent update I have to call B.S. You wouldnt make a teaser and spend time nor money on it just for giggles. That is not how corporate works. We all know that corporate is a bunch of tight wad douche bags so I say its safe to assume that there will be another game released.

  • JamalisVenom

    Ruby Heart or GTFO

  • Peter B

    Capcom is the shit now. Gave me a reason to live. lol.

  • Dwin

    rollback netcode this time capcom.

  • mrnick2d

    I saw this and for 5 seconds I was gay.

  • rtdzign

    As a fighting game fan, I am starting to worry that they will play out fighting games, and 3 years from now it will be like 2001-2008 all over again.

    • Y2Ryoko

      There was nothing bad about 2001-2008. MvC2 got big, Guilty Gear XX got big, people were still playing Third Strike, Virtual Fighters, and Tekkens. The only thing lacking was a huge Capcom title and a massive casual audience. As a fighting game fan, you shouldn’t worry about fighting games getting played out. Even if Capcom screws up some releases, there’re plenty of games that can take those places.

  • Gen2K

    Yay for non-sucky version of Hsien-ko.

  • RagnaXBL

    If capcom makes another one of these shitty 2.5D games i’m gonnna be sick, plz make it 2D

    • Spectaa

      Prepare the meds. No way this is getting 2D, or they would have to put way more work than in Street IV with way less benefits, it makes no sense for them.

  • Sir_Flawless

    Well, I have never played a Darkstalkers game. I have heard from some people that it is similar to Marvel in that it has that magic series thing. But w/e, if they’re really making a new one and it looks good, I will buy it. Certainly looks like tons of ppl here are hyped for it.

  • DemonDukk

    Capcom, you already had me at UMvC3 & SFxT but now…….keep up the awesomeness!

  • bushido blackout

    HD 2D all day. 2.5 D TvC is ok as well.

  • 30kfeetup

    NICE

    I would like to see Donovan in more games anyway, instead of just throwing him in puzzle fighter.

  • PKSkyler

    I cant wait to throw blades, decapitate, split in half, absorb your souls, drag you to a bloody realm, tear apart, izuna drop, and pump blood into you all.

  • rukawa_kaede

    this is going to be a horrendous game

  • Rayartz

    YO! This is incredibly Misleading
    The Truth is
    This is one of the first slides from the SF X Tekken Panel
    Ono said, he’s tried and tried to get Capcom to give him a go ahead to make this game with last years panel he had everyone hold up a 1$ bill and took a picture to try and convice Capcom Executives. However they do not seem interested at all so this year he wanted to everyone to hold up a 10$ bill instead as a joke.
