Darkstalkers really aren't dead? Ono is still 'striving to attain' a new title in the series

Fans want Capcom to make a new entry in the Darkstalkers franchise. This has been true for a long time now.


Though the company released Darkstalkers Resurrection -- a compilation of the series' two classic 2d fighters -- back in 2013, it wasn't quite enough to satisfy fans in the long run.

A couple of weeks ago, one Twitter user decided to revive the request by asking Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono if there are any plans for a new Darkstalkers game.

Despite the fact that Ono has probably been asked this question hundreds of times, the Capcom representative actually replied.

Of course, this doesn't confirm a new Darkstalkers title by any means. However, it is definitely interesting and reassuring to know that in 2016 Ono is still trying to bring fans what they want.

Now that Capcom has officially launched Street Fighter 5, perhaps planning for a new fighting game is already in the works. If so, we sure hope it's Darkstalkers.

While we wait, we can still enjoy the "Darkstalkers are not dead" teaser trailer from New York Comic-Con 2012.
