Japan’s Mikado Arcade is home of some of the finest classic arcade action in the world. While we’ve been heavily covering the Super Street Fighter Carnival 2017 tournament series, that’s not the only big event Mikado is running right now:
“Vampire Hunter Championship 2017” is Mikado’s annual tournament for Vampire Hunter: Darkstalkers’ Revenge. Among Darkstalkers fans, Vampire Hunter is considered the slower paced, more methodical entry in the Darkstalkers series, though don’t let that fool you. If rush-down is your thing, don’t worry — there’s plenty of air-dashing, frame trapping, cross up insanity for you to cheer through. And while tiers are considered less compact in Vampire Hunter overall, there’s still some great low tier representation in this tournament from Victor and Felicia.
