Combofiend addresses Darkstalkers Resurrection version concerns, Capcom releases OST sample

According to some sources that were able to playtest the Darkstalkers Resurrection, the version of Night Warriors was not the same version that is used for tournaments in the Japanese arcades. This has caused fans to jump onto the Ask Capcom forums, to see if they could get any information if this was true, or not.

In particular, a few specific things were mentioned that would be used as an example were listed. To alleivate any concerns Combofiend jumped in and gave some information on the specifics that were listed.

Felineki: To clarify, some of the specific things that have been mentioned with regards to Vampire Hunter [Night Warrirors] are that Huitzil's jumping medium punch doesn't trip standing opponents (which it does in the 950302 version), and that if timed just right Bishamon is able to use his sword pull when the sword throw is blocked.

Combofiend: Hey guys, quick update; our developers in Japan recently tested out the some of the specifics mentioned in the thread, and their findings were:
• Huitzil's does knockdown standing opponents
• Bishamon can pull blocking opponents to him from the right distance
• When a character is in Rikuo's bubble, it's not possible to perform the Sonic Wave or Poison Breath. They won't come out.

Maybe the version that was playtested wasn't the final digital release version, which could of resulted in some of the specifics above working differently.

Hope this helps in alleviating the fears out there.

Additionally, Capcom has released a sample of the Darkstalkers Resurrection original sound track.

PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off

PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off PC gamers hoping for news about the DLC characters in Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have to wait long, as Capcom's Christian Svensson said news is likely to be out before the end of the week, and they'd have some good things to share about the price point they'd be offered at, too.

He also delved into the PS2 re-release of Capcom vs SNK 2 saying it's a couple of months off, but it's cleared some channels in regards to emulation testing, and the digital sales team is working on locking down a date.

Here's a transcript of notable details from the live Ask Capcom session that was held today, hit the jump to check out the video archive.

• Svensson apologized for the very long delay on the PC Street Fighter X Tekken patches. He said the character DLC update should be out by the end of this week, and a significant short term price point will be available as well. Details will be announced soon.

• The digital survey was "hugely successful from my stand point," Svensson said. There were over 64,000 respondents in six days. There was some very good feedback that was actionable, but he didn't elaborate on what this pertains to. Results from the survey are being shared pretty broadly with senior management and are being factored in to product planning for the digital market.

• When asked about updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — which came up constantly throughout the session — the guys said, "It kills us to not be able to talk about some things. Trust me, we know you want to know answers, and there's things we'd love to tell you, but... " they have rules they have to abide by. They didn't confirm anything one way or the other, they're simply saying that they wish they could share details, but they cannot because of the rules in place.

• The Capcom vs. SNK 2 re-release of the PS2 version is a couple of months off, as the digital sales team is trying to secure a date. The good news is it has passed a few channels at SCEA in the emulation testing. It's in the process of being worked on for North and South America. This is a straight port of the PS2 version.
