Daigo and Sako square off in Darkstalkers Resurrection - Strategies and moves for B.B. Hood, Jedah and Pyron

Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano and top player Nuki conducted a walkthrough of Darkstalkers Resurrection, which also features a casual match between HORI|Sako and MCZ|Daigo Umehara, who are testing the title's online play, even though they're playing in person.

Umehara notes that the title is speedy, without lag, but this match was hosted in Japan, instead of state side, where the connections are known to be considerably better.

You'll notice that the clip is spoken in Japanese, but while the translation ends up being a bit wonky, if you enable the CC option and then use the "translate" beta setting on YouTube, you can get a rough idea of what people are saying in the clip.

Here's a transcript of notable details via the always awesome Beast Note website.

- Capcom producer Ayano and Nuki talk about screen styles that you can choose in the game: Over-the-Shoulder, Retro, Arcade Cabinet, Wide.

- Although it says in the video that Sako is Vampire Savior national No.1, Sako had never won any major individual tournament. His best was top 4 in Tougeki 2004 (according to Famitsu). (He won pre-Tougeki 2004 5 on 5 tournament which is a team tournament.)

- On the other hand, Nuki was actually Vampire Savior national No.2 at Gamest Cup (where he lost to Umehara in the final). (When Gamest Magazine stopped, many staff went with Arcadia Magazine that later organized Tougeki.)

Combofiend and Haunts have also done another entry in their character strategy videos, this time for B.B. Hood, and IGN has new overviews of Jedah and Pyron. Hit the jump to check them all out.

Svensson: If I have my way, PC users will not be left out in the future of fighting games - Capcom will be doing more surveys Assuring PC users that he's on board with pushing Capcom's products out to their platform specifically, Christian Svensson said that while he can't make promises — if he had his way — PC users won't be left out in the future of fighting games. This is potentially good news for fans of this platform, as Svensson has a good amount of clout within the company.

More surveys will also be forthcoming, like the one they did in December which over 60,000 people responded to. Svensson also talks about why there wasn't an arcade release for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and if Street Fighter 3 2nd Impact is likely to see a re-release.

Capcom blog: Darkstalkers Resurrection's turbo speed, online battle speed and ranked match design

Capcom blog: Darkstalkers Resurrection's turbo speed, online battle speed and ranked match design Capcom's Ayano-san recently gathered around 100 Darkstalkers enthusiasts in Osaka to play Darkstalkers Resurrection during an in store demo.

Hit the jump to check out information on the game's turbo speed, online battle speed setting and ranked match design.

Hey everyone, Tomoaki Ayano here yet again to give you the dirt on Darkstalkers!

Last Saturday we had an in-store demo of Darkstalkers Resurrection in Osaka, Japan. We tried to include all of the requests that we’d got from our fans at the Akihabara event in Tokyo. This time, around 100 people showed up for the demo!

Even though it was raining and cold as heck, our outdoor display was greeted by a slew of red-hot combatants!

For a while, we even had to hand out numbered tickets to people in line. At first, many people were testing to see just how accurate the game was compared to the arcade versions, but later on we a ton of people playing just for fun.

There were a lot more new players than I thought there would be, and it was impressive seeing them have fun playing each other, exchange opinions and ask things about the intricacies of Darkstalkers such as what was Auto-Guard, how do you do chain combos, what does Dark Force do and so on.
Near the end of the demo I jumped in for some matches

I only won 1 out of 8 matches... I thought I’d win more than that, but things weren’t working in my favor that day.

- Umehara began the series at around 13 years old, Sako at around elementary school.

- Nuki asked about Umehara's 286 winstreak legend at Akihabara district. Due to system limitation, the counter stopped at 255 and reset, Umehara said it's sad you need a witness (laugh). (The competition was high in this district.)

Capcom goes over the differences between Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3 in Darkstalkers Resurrection

With the upcoming release of Darkstalkers Resurrection, many Capcom fans who haven't played the game have been asking which of the two games that come in the pack would fit them best.

Luckily Capcom, has put together a quick video showcasing the differences between both Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3 as they have a ton of differences from the roster to the way the rounds work and more.

Darkstalkers Resurrection is set for release March 12th on PlayStation Network and March 13 on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

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.
