Yoshinori Ono, the executive producer of the Street Fighter franchise, has just made a special announcement during the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary panel at NYCC. After years of fans’ demands, Capcom is
developing considering working on a brand new installment for Darkstalkers and currently labeled as “Darkstalkers Are Not Dead”. The brief trailer shown showcased SFIV’s art style for the game’s cinematic. [UPDATE: “Darkstalkers Are Not Dead” is a project that Ono wants to have green lit by Capcom and based on how sales do for “Darksiders Resurrection”, Capcom may give the go ahead to focus on the new Darkstalkers game. Ono said it all comes down to the fans’ support to get this going.]
To further add excitement to the announcement, Capcom confirmed that “Darkstalkers Resurrection” will be coming to the PSN and XBLA early 2013. The downloadable package will contain “Night Warriors” and “Darkstalkers III” for the price of one ($14.99 on PSN, 1200 MS Points on 360). The games will utilize the GGPO netcode and have a ton of extra content.
