2) When Alessy uses the move Shrink Wrap against Mahrahia, the game would crash.

3) There were errors in the staff roll

Darkstalkers Resurrection confirmed for Japan release, entitled Vampire Resurrection

When Darkstalkers Resurrection was announced not too long ago at New York Comic-Con 2012, there was no word on whether or not it would be seeing a release in Japan. Fearing that the HD port of the two Darkstalkers games wouldn't be headed over seas, Twitter users began asking Yoshinori Ono about it's release to which he responded that it was still an uncertainty.

Ono recently posted a picture on Twipple showing the artwork for Darkstalkers Resurrection, however, in Japan the game will be titled Vampire Resurrection. Capcom Japan has also opened up the official Japanese site for Vampire Resurrection.

Darkstalkers Resurrection based on PS2 version but not straight port, Turbo 3 will be default speed for online play

Darkstalkers Resurrection based on PS2 version but not straight port, Turbo 3 will be default speed for online play Darkstalkers Resurrection will be based on the PlayStation 2 release, which was basically just running an arcade ROM, Capcom's Derek Neal recently stated on the Capcom Unity boards. This won't be a straight port of the PS2 version, though, as the bug fixes that were made for that release won't be a part of re-release.

Neal added that this release should essentially be the same as the arcade version, but with some extras thrown in. He added that Turbo 3 will be the default for online play and posted some notes about which hidden characters will be selectable. Hit the jump to read everything.

D3v: 1. While it was earlier said that these would be based on the original arcade ROMS, it's now being said that they're being based on the PS2 Vampire collection. The biggest issue here is that the PS2 collection has one frame of input delay on versus mode.

2. Turbo speed on ranked. Ranked is apparently not at the preferred turbo speed setting, similar to MvC Origins.

3. Updated character select screen graphics. Please allow the option to use the original graphics.


Derek Neal: Hi guys,

Wow, a lot of stuff in here. Some answers:

1) We're starting with the same version of the game that was used for the PS2 version. As several people have pointed out, that version was basically just running the arcade ROM, although it also had some tweaks and bug fixes (for example, fixing certain situations where some attacks were unblockable).

We're not straight porting the PS2 version (for example, other games that were included in that package are not also in this one), and we're also not including the bug-fixes that were made for the PS2 version. The end result is that our version is essentially the same as the original arcade version, although it does come with some fancy extras.

2) After feedback from the launch, we're changing the game so that selecting "Turbo" will automatically set the speed to Turbo 3. This will also be the default for online play.

3) We already have the ability to shut off the high-res character screens. I mentioned this several times during Comic Con :)

Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Rival Schools' director Hideaki Itsuno has plans to bring games to current consoles, doesn't know if they'll come to fruition

Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Rival Schools' director Hideaki Itsuno has plans to bring games to current consoles, doesn't know if they'll come to fruition Hideaki Itsuno is a name we haven't heard much of recently in the fighting game community, he works at Capcom on various games including being the director of Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Rival Schools. In a recent interview on by AnimeNewsNetwork he was asked breifly about those two games coming to the current consoles.

Mr. Itsuno, you worked on several fighting games, including the Rival Schools titles. Do you think we'll ever see another game in that series or perhaps a port for Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network?
Itsuno: I happen to have certain plans to do things like that. I don't know if it'll come to fruition, but it's on my agenda for sure.

Did you come up with the idea for Rival Schools? What inspired it?
Itsuno: When looking at fighting games, it seemed they were focused on worlds that people were unfamiliar with. But everyone's gone to school. So I felt that people could relate to that.

You were also the director of CAPCOM vs. SNK 2. Might we see that again for a current console?
Itsuno: Funny you should ask. I'm also planning some things there.

In the past, Capcom vs. SNK 2 has had a huge push from the fans to get Capcom to do a re-release, so the original director of the game having plans could potentially be extremely good news.

Darkstalkers Resurrection been in development for about a year, no plans currently for Wii U release but fan request has been noted

At New York Comic-Con last week, Capcom announced the upcoming release of Darkstalkers Resurrection for the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network in early 2013. While great news in itself, some fans were wondering why the game was not coming to the Wii U which releases November 18, 2012.

Christian Svensson on the Ask-Capcom clarifies that Darkstalkers Resurrection has been in development for about a year and when they had started planning the release they did not have clarity on the Wii U's online strategy.

Over 40 matches of high level Marvel Super Heroes play- Romneto vs. Josh 360, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins the Online Warrior

Romneto sent in a great deal of Marvel Super Heroes matches between himself and a player named Josh 360. There are over 40 matches here broken up into 2 videos and both players showcase some excellent play using characters such as Captain America, Dr. Doom and Iron Man.

Below is a bit from Romento about this set of matches.

Recently I played a set of 40+ Marvel Super Heroes Matches on XBL vs Josh 360. Josh is well known as the best and most creative Iron Man player in MvC2. Few people know that he is also quite skilled with Iron Man in MSH. He shows off several exceptional infinites, resets and other Iron Man technology in this set of matches vs me. I use Captain America, Psylocke, Dr. Doom and more. These are very intense and entertaining matches of this classic old school fighter.

Hit the jump to check out the second set of matches and Maximilian's Online Warrior.

Darkstalkers Resurrection may not be released in Japan, over seas players must be patient

Darkstalkers Resurrection may not be released in Japan, over seas players must be patient Beast Note posted an interesting bit of information concerning the release of the newly announced Darkstalkers Resurrection game in Japan. According to Ono's Twitter, the HD port of Darkstalkers 2 and 3 will not be hitting Japanese consoles.

A Japanese user commented on the Twitter post and Ono responded saying that Capcom Japan has yet to announce the release of the game and that it may or may not come out in Japan. He proceed to ask the user to be patient for news on that front.

This wouldn't be the first time an HD port of a classic Capcom fighter did not see an over seas release. Both Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix and Marvel vs. Capcom Origins are not available to Japanese gamers.

Although game exclusivity may seem as though it benefits North America a bit more, not too long ago Capcom vs. SNK 2 was released on the Playstation Network solely in Japan.
