Settle down, boys and girls! Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano has some great news about the Darkstalkers series to tell you about.

"It's been about a year since Darkstalkers Resurrection was released," Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano writes in his latest post on the Saikyo X Kobusi blog.

"So I'm truly pleased, as a Darkstalkers fan myself, to be able to tell you about some new information on the Darkstalkers franchise today.

"And that is: The All-Capcom Titles Original Smartphone Cover Fan-vote Project," Ayano enthuses.

Ayano is referring to a new series of limited iPhone 5/5S covers that the e-Capcom store will produce and sell, once a certain number of orders has been reached.

A total of eight designs have been nominated for this smartphone cover project so far, available for pre-orders on the Japanese online retail store (for those of you who are wondering, they accept foreign credit cards but will only ship to Japanese addresses).

However -- just like with the alternate versions of the Morrigan figure announced recently -- only the designs that meet a minimum number of orders will actually be made and sold.

Four of those designs are based on the Darkstalkers series, and the remaining designs feature artwork from the Megaman X and Breath of Fire franchises.

And Capcom has plans to add more designs to the line-up in the near future

Which design, out of the current eight nominees, would you vote with your wallet on? What other designs would you like to see?
