With Darkstalkers Resurrection's release happening in a few months, I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at some high level footage of some of this franchise's best players, many of which are still going strong today. MCZ|Daigo Umehara, HORI|Sako, Haitani and Nuki are all featured in the videos below.

Darkstalkers 2 and 3 will be released as a compilation title with HD graphic filters, online play and many more features on March 14, 2013.

The first clip has Sako (B. B. Hood) facing off against Nuki (Bishamon). Hit the jump for the rest.

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game The Capcom forums have been quite active recently with users fielding their questions about various subjects, specifically Street Fighter X Mega Man glitches and getting Capcom's cooperation on other fan-made games. First up, Brelston mentioned that we can expect to see a free V2 patch for SFxMM early next month that will address some of the issues brought up by a Capcom forum user below.

1. If you lock your computer or close your screen with game running the video doesn't want to come back. You have to close the game and restart. I think it's an issue with your computer needing to refresh the screen.

2. If you get killed at the same time as you kill the last boss in the boss rush you can't re-enter their tube. You are stuck in the level. I'm not sure if this is a problem with any boss during boss rush or if it's just the last boss you fight.

3. The top of ladders don't seem to want you to grab them. Some full jumps are awkward.

4. Esc key should have a yes or no menu to safely close the game. I've exited on accident a couple times.

5. (Not really a issue since I don't do it, but) Urien can be easily killed by pausing game with mine sweeper explosion over him.

Brelston: Thanks for the notes. We're working on a V2 that should address some of these issues. Goal is to get it out to everyone early January, free as usual :)

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters Capcom continues to say a Capcom vs. SNK 3 title won't happen any time soon, this is despite the PS2 version of the game being re-released here in the states in the near future, along with Capcom Fighting Evolution.

All news wasn't bad though, at least if you happen to own the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken, as Christian Svensson noted that they may have some "interesting news" for existing owners soon.

Adrian: Will Capcom vs. SNK 3 ever come out or SVC Chaos 2?

Svensson: Ever is such a very, very long time. I can say, if it happens, it won't be soon though.

Gohan16ken: Does Capcom Japan talk to Capcom USA? Even though I am excited to hear that Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Capcom Fighting Evolution will be re-release digitally as a PlayStation 2 classic, I am a little bewildered as to how it came about based on past comments.

Svensson: We communicate ALL the time, however the folks responsible for PS2 re-releases on PSN and Wii Virtual Console operate a bit separately from everything else. We don't have as clear communications as other areas of the business.

Ignss: Will the DLC characters for the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken be free?

Svensson: Not free, but we'll have hopefully some interesting news for existing SFxT PC owners soon on that front.

Fighting game artwork gallery for Stan 'Artgerm' Lau

Stan "Artgerm" Lau is an artist Capcom has been calling on a lot lately. He redid the artwork for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition and Darkstalkers Resurrection. We wanted to highlight some of the pieces he's done over the years, along with his official Capcom works.

You can scope out a gallery of random items below, and see his official works for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition and Darkstalkers Resurrection after the jump.

BAS: I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken

BAS: I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken Chris Bahn was able to grab a quick interview from D44 aka BAS, a Capcom vs. SNK 2 legend, who is known for his A-Groove Bison, Vega and Blanka team. You might also recognize his name from the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 team tournament held at whose team placed first in 2011.

Many topics are covered from his win in CvS2 at Evo 2007, his favorite experiences with the game, whether he preferred the Alpha series or the CvS series and more.

Did you consider the Alpha series or Capcom vs. SNK series to be more enjoyable, and can elaborate your preference?

Well, I think those games are almost perfect, but CVS2 is definitely better suited for my tastes. I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken.

Infinite combos is cool, but I dislike how characters have “free charging” while they’re in this state. Also, I think it’s a bad idea that you initially start out with a full Super meter at the beginning of the match. Players tend to dismiss making effective strategies and instead just seem more concerned with executing custom combos (CC).

With Capcom vs. SNK 2, A-Groove is very strong, but you had to build meter on your own (unlike Alpha 3), so a player needed to develop an effective strategy to build up that meter safely (and wisely). CVS2 also is a “team battle game”, meaning that even if you lost your first match, you still had more opportunities to come back since it featured multiple characters per team. You can even switch up the order to avoid potentially bad matchups. I definitely feel that Capcom vs. SNK series provided more flexibility and options compared to other fighters.

Street Fighter X Mega Man speed run completed in 27:09 by Duckfist

Duckfist has uploaded an awesome speed run of Street Fighter X Mega Man. In this video the game is completed in 27:09, which is the current record as far as we know.

Note that quite a few mistakes are made during some of the boss fights. Considering the current record is already 27 minutes, it'll be interesting to see how much lower the speed run time can get with fewer errors.

Yoshinori Ono has interest in working with Street Fighter Alpha series again

Yoshinori Ono has interest in working with Street Fighter Alpha series again Capcom's Yoshinori Ono left a potentially interesting Tweet regarding the future of the Street Fighter Alpha series, noting that he'd like to do something with the long dormant franchise.

CSLFiero: Here's to hoping a console release of Alpha 3 Max with Darkstalkers Resurrection.

Yoshinori Ono: I have interest in making something for [Alpha] series. ;D

Things get a bit more compelling when you look at some past statements from Capcom, including an old interview with David Sirlin, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix's lead designer, where he talked about the origins of the project. Sirlin mentions that he pushed to redo SSF2T at the time, as it was the title he knew best, but Capcom really wanted to go with Street Fighter Alpha 3. So why did Capcom want to do Street Fighter Alpha 3?

Sirlin: They just really liked Alpha 3! It has all these different versions, and it's been ported to PSP, and Anniversary Collection, every time they add some new features to it and add some new characters to it. I don't know, I guess they think it sells well.

Re-release of PS2 version of Capcom vs. SNK 2 is all that's likely for the foreseeable future

Re-release of PS2 version of Capcom vs. SNK 2 is all that's likely for the foreseeable future Some fans had been hoping that the recent announcement of Capcom vs. SNK 2's re-release would open the door for a more full featured port, including HD graphic filters, online play and similar things that Capcom's other recently re-released fighters had picked up.

Christian Svensson kept things on the level today though, stating outright on the Capcom Boards that a re-release of the PS2 version (see straight port) is all that's likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

HiryuMK: Will there be a Capcom vs. SNK 2: Online Edition like Street Fighter 3 Third Strike received? I know there supposedly was a PS2 classic coming later, but I am sure the fans will rather have an ''Online Edition'' with upgraded visuals, online, trophies and challenges like what SF3 3s & Marvel vs. Capcom Origins got.

Svensson: A re-release of the PS2 version is all that is likely in the foreseeable future.

News about Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Capcom Fighting Evolution coming to North American PlayStation Store coming next year

The PlayStation 2 port of both Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Capcom Fighting Evolution are now avaiable for download on the PlayStation Network in Japan.

As these are strict ports of the PS2 version, there is no online multiplayer or anything added to the game. Since they're unavailable anywhere outside of Japan, members of the Ask-Capcom forums have been asking if there were any plans to release these on the the North American PlayStation Store.

Christian Svensson jumped into the thread to give us a short but interesting reply.

Eventually. The timing will be quite different though from Japan. More news will come ‘next year’.
