This year marked the 20th anniversary of Vampire Savior: Lord of Darkness, a.k.a. Darkstalkers 3, and the game continues to enjoy a cult following in different fighting game scenes around the world. At Northeast Championships 18 earlier this month, NYC VSav  managed to capture footage from the tournament along with some first-to-10 sets with the top-placing players.

Vampire Savior has been added to season two of Burst League, an open circuit of anime fighting game tournaments primarily focused in North America. Since September of this year 20 VSAV tournaments have been included in Burst League, including NEC18. The game will also be one of 30 titles at Frosty Faustings X next month, Jan. 19 to Jan. 20.

For those interested in learning more about VSAV, the Shoryuken Wiki has a full breakdown of the game system and mechanics. Once you’re ready to find competition, you can find matches via FightCade or in the Vampire Savior Discord channel.
