Today, Capcom’s Vampire Resurrection has released in Japan (known as Darkstalkers Resurrection in other territories). While the launch trailer for the Japanese version is virtually identical  to the launch trailer released for the other territories, you can view the video below. Capcom has also released a video featuring producer Tomoaki Ayano commentating on the game’s various features.

Vampire Resurrection is a revival of the series with the two classics Vampire Hunter, released in 1995, and Vampire Savior, released in 1997, compiled into a single HD package. Together with the release of the title, Capcom has provided information on the three hidden characters found in Vampire Savior. In addition, details on an upcoming title update, which will add Fight Request functionality to the title, have also been revealed. Fight Request is compatible with Arcade mode and Training mode, allowing players to switch between training and fighting without wasting time.

Vampire Savior Hidden Character Introduction

Dark Gallon (Dark Talbain)

Has a dim glowing body color. While he features almost the same moves as normal Gallon, Dragon Cannon has the same properties as the Vampire Hunter version of the move.

To select Dark Gallon, place the cursor on Gallon, and while holding the Start button, press two P buttons or two K buttons at the same time.

Oboro Bishamon

Shares the same normals as Bishamon, but cannot use the special move Karame Dama or its derivative attacks. In its place, Oboro Bishamon has a new special attack, Oni Naburi.

To select Oboro Bishamon, place the cursor on Bishamon, and while holding the Start button, press any attack button.


Win a match, and Shadow possesses the opponent’s character, using it for the next match. Without mastering all the characters, victory will be quite difficult.

To select Shadow, place the cursor on [?], press the Start button five times then press any attack button. To select a specific character for the first match, highlight that character and press the Start button three times followed by the Shadow input code. To select Dark Gallon and Oboro Bishamon by this method, hold the Start button on the fifth press then enter the corresponding attack button(s) as normal. Available in Arcade mode only.

Future Title Update to Add Fight Request Functionality

In the first title update for Vampire Resurrection, the Arcade Fight Request function will be added to the game. The time of the update will be announced as soon as the details are determined.

Arcade Mode Fight Request

After the title update, while playing Arcade mode, you can set Fight Request to on or off. When a player that matching the settings appears, the challenger interrupts Arcade mode and the match starts. By setting Fight Request to “off”, you can continue to play solo as before.

Training Mode Fight Request

Not only does Fight Request function with Arcade mode, but you can also use it while training. You can practice combos then test them in an actual fight. When matched with a player, you’ll be to sent back to character select.

Bug Fixes

The upcoming update will also contain fixes for several issues discovered in the Vampire Resurrection conversions of Hunter and Savior.
