Darkstalkers Resurrection - Demitri and Morrigan bio and move set videos from Capcom

Posted by SFilp • January 11, 2013 at 4:32 p.m. PST
Combofiend has posted two new videos over on Capcom-Unity detailing Darkstalkers Resurrection character bio's and move sets.

Today features Demitri and Morrigan. Hit the jump to see the other bio and video.


Demitri Maximoff was once one of the most influential nobles in the demon realm of the Makai. However, being ever-thirsty for power, Demitri challenged the ruler of the demons Belial Aensland. Belial easily defeated him and, as a lesson to all would-be usurpers, exiled the wounded Demitri and his castle to the light of the human world.

For one hundred years, Demitri hid in his castle, regaining his strength. He preyed upon adventurers who wandered into his castle, feasting upon their blood and making them serve him. He continued waiting until his strength was recovered enough that he could walk in broad daylight with no ill effects. Having waited over a century, Demitri was ready to again make his claim to the throne of the Makai, and get revenge on the whole of House Aensland.


Morrigan is a succubus born in 1678 in Scotland and is the adopted daughter of Belial of the Aensland House. When she was born, Morrigan was extremely powerful, so much so that Belial sealed away part of her power, one-third in himself to be returned upon his death, and one-third in a pocket dimension, which eventually became a being of its own, a succubus named Lilith. Unaware of Belial's action, Morrigan grew up and found her life as the Queen of the Night in the Aensland castle dull, so she frequently visited the human world to look for entertainment.

On one occasion, Morrigan was drawn to a strange power (which would turn out to be the fire demon Pyron) and ventured into the human world once again. Upon her return, she was informed of Belial's death and that she was the next successor to the Aensland throne. Although she is now rightfully the ruler of the Makai, she shirks her responsibilities and seeks to continue her life as before. Morrigan eventually meets Lilith, and the two beings merge into one, fully restoring Morrigan's power.

I like these voiced narrations. Makes me wish Vincent Price were alive.

Yo, even the most jaded Capcom hater has to appreciate how Capcom has stepped up their promotional game recently. Lots of videos, updates, and general activity. The future of fighting games looks bright if they keep up with this..

Just buy the game so we can get Darkstalkers 4

chubbyfingerz said on January 11, 2013 at 5:21 p.m.

Are those the graphics? Are you kidding me? They redid turbo and they're not redoing THIS one after all this advertising?

I love darkstalkers, its the first game i ever beat at the arcade but those are 1995 graphics. Come on man

HyperViperNZ said on January 11, 2013 at 5:40 p.m.

Sounds like Wesker doing the voice narration

jadeguy said on January 11, 2013 at 5:42 p.m.

This game should be rated M

1. Jedah moves are too bloody especially his Splecio (that's when he cuts his on head off and blood splash out) and San Bassale (that's when he inflates one of his opponents's body parts until it explodes and blood comes out)

2. Lilith's Luminous Illusion cuts her opponent in half

3. Jon Talbain's Moment Slice leaves his opponent in 2 halves

4. When Demitri does his Midnight Pleasure blood squirts out of his opponent while he is biting them and when he does his Midnight Bliss blood squirts out of his transformed opponent's mouth

5. When Bishamon does his Togakubi Sarashi he cuts his opponent in half and their upper body part falls on a table, and when he does his Oni Kubi Hineri he leaves his opponent in half.

Why is this game good?

Astro_Notch said on January 11, 2013 at 7:35 p.m.

Played this game for a couple hours recently. It was really difficult and I didn't know what I was doing.

Ranshi said on January 11, 2013 at 8:40 p.m.

@9 People are more sensible nowdays, but don't think cartoon violence can get M ratings still.

I think it's great they can still get away with stuff like this in videogames, unlike with certain cartoons/animes.

rockman said on January 11, 2013 at 8:44 p.m.

Hope to see more of these, especially for Talbain.

BigFleccs said on January 11, 2013 at 9:57 p.m.

The graphics could be better. i thought it was going to be like hd remix. lazy programmers. i may not get this now. ill just wait for 4, if there is one.

tktktk43 said on January 11, 2013 at 10:09 p.m.


their are graphic filters; similar to mvc2, third strike, etc. There is online play, hd filter, it's the arcade version, plus it's a bundle. If your a fan of DS series I don't see why you wouldn't pick this up.

Batsu said on January 11, 2013 at 11:01 p.m.


It's fast paced, very crazy/creative and is the most balanced fighter Capcom has ever made, barring SFIV and MVC3. It's arguably the best 2D fighter Capcom has ever made. It's only problem was, it doesn't have Ryu in it, that and when it came out, Capcom made 1000 other fighters and nearly the exact same time. It got over shadowed by the games with Street Fighters in it.

BionicRebel said on January 11, 2013 at 11:12 p.m.

I never played any Darkstalkers game.. But still, is it just me or do these graphics look absolutely terrible.. Wow i really hate the way this game looks, any possible interest there may have grown is gone

tktktk43 said on January 12, 2013 at 2:56 a.m.

Are you guys serious? Graphically it's on par with any other 2D fighters released during the time. In addition, this game has some of the best sprite animations in the history of fighting games. Hence, it's one of the reason why most Darkstalker characters didn't make it into mvc3.

anthonygamer said on January 12, 2013 at 3:53 a.m.


This game is Terrible. I don't understand the hype behind this garbage.

I downloaded DS3. It blew chunks. Horrible animation, gameplay is broken, & I found nothing interesting about any of the characters .... except Morrigan. Love Morrigan but we already have her in MvC3 so what´s the point? Sorry to those who love Darkstalkers but it does nothing for me. I still hope it does well though.

bunny said on January 12, 2013 at 5:56 a.m.

this is great for ds fans and maybe it will attract a new fanbase to the games but its niche its not going to last long they would've been better off just skipping these and do ds4 if we really even need that ds are dead

jadeguy said on January 12, 2013 at 6:11 a.m.

They should make Mortal Kombat Vs. Darkstalkers

JRXP2011 said on January 12, 2013 at 6:45 a.m.

They need to stop with the outdated games/graphics and continue with the new stuff.

MM_Lowtier said on January 12, 2013 at 7:17 a.m.

Darkstalker sprites look awesome personally. They are more detailed then any other game they've done during that period. Game itself is very good also. People will find it hard at 1st but trust me. Its a very good game.

DarkLight said on January 12, 2013 at 7:35 a.m.

Great Game... Can't wait :)

BumblebeeCody said on January 12, 2013 at 10:06 a.m.

@Batsu #16
I guess I'll give it a try then. Never played or even touched Darkstalkers. But when you say balanced like MvC3 that's not appealing. I'll still try it though.

intehweeds said on January 12, 2013 at 12:03 p.m.

people are gonna drop this hella fast lol

it's cool I'll have a good port to mess around with the game but just like when I bought gg, I'm thankful for a port of an old game on a current gem system especially with decent netcode but I am not expecting it to be a huge scene nor do I see people staying with it after a month. people love derp

it's a fun game but you are not gonna be doing anything or winning matches for a while, it's not the easiest most straightforward game. at least it'll have a ton of people online on the first few months like 3soe, ggac+, p4a and every other game that isn't sf or marvel

OSM said on January 12, 2013 at 1:19 p.m.

There are some insanely stupid comments here.

Eventhubs is just nasty when it comes to anything that isn't SF or Marvel, you guys won't even give this a proper chance. This isn't a one time thing either, I've been noticing this kind of attitude for awhile only here and it really irritates me sometimes. How about you guys actually hop on GGPO, give the game a decent amount of time and try to actually learn how to play it? And if you don't like it after all that? Then at least you gave it a shot.

This game is criminally underrated, and under appreciated by the community and I will never honestly understand why. Not only is it not difficult to learn, but it shares many mechanics from the SFA and MvC series people should find right at home.

I just had to rant about this eventually.

Batsu said on January 12, 2013 at 2:20 p.m.


For as hyper active and as many characters as MVC3 has, I can't think of a 2D fighting game as balanced.

tktktk43 said on January 12, 2013 at 11:15 p.m.

In terms of the smoothness of sprite animations, hands down it's third strike and Darkstalkers. Although I do agree the majority of players will drop this really fast it doesn't change the fact that Darkstalkers is a good game and for it's era, a beautifully crafted game. You guys don't know art!
