Next month, some of the country’s most dedicated Darkstalkers players will converge on Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati, Ohio for Darkstalkers: Death & Rebirth, the largest tournament the series has seen in the United States. This will provide top-notch competitors an avenue to showcase their skills and fans in the larger fighting game community an opportunity to see these titles played at a high level.
As detailed in the trailer above, Darkstalkers: Death & Rebirth will feature a number of events over the course of the weekend, including single- and double-elimination tournaments, a 3-on-3 team tournament, a rookie-only tournament, a high-stakes buy-in competition, and an 8-on-8 character specialist exhibition for Vampire Savior (Darkstalkers 3), as well as a separate tournament for its predecessor, Vampire Hunter (Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge).
Winners of these events will be awarded a limited edition “Death & Rebirth” poster illustrated by artist Hakase Tatsuro, which you can check out below.
With players the likes of Kyle W., Ailerus, Dyne, Kajoq, Vexco, and more in attendance, Darkstalkers: Death & Rebirth will be the perfect opportunity to test your own skills, check out some high-level competition, or both!
