Super SF4 on sale!! SuperSF4 is nothing compared to what's coming!!

"Monday Ono, a big darkstalker fan, tweeted that worked on a proposition with Keiji Inafune, director of research and development at Capcom, and then, later, that it was closed with sucess. A Fan asked if it was the next Darkstalker and ono said "I'm left speechless yet..... Shhhh." "

One could only hope. I always preferred the Vampire series over all the Capcom fighting series.

While I was never a fan of Darkstalkers, having another well developped Capcom game in the fighting community would be a nice thing. Even though Super is currently the IT game, it cant sustain the community forever. Having smaller offerings like TVC and HDR along with the big daddies like Tekken and MVC3 helps to keep things fresh. I wonder where a new DS game would fit into the fighting game hierarchy

Watch it be a new Star Gladiator!

He's been teasing it forever, of course it's going to be Darkstalkers.

If it's not Darkstalkers, it should be Megaman Legends 3. :mad:

Anyway, if it's Darkstalkers then hell yeah! Can't wait to use B.B. Hood

He's said that it is highly unlikely, since the SF4 engine does not lend itself well to the over the top nature of the Vampire series. That's the reason Capcom is using MT Framework for MvC3.

Ono has been focused on fighting game projects of late, given the success of SFIV, so that is highly unlikely.

After all the hinting and teasing, it better be Darkstalkers. :lol

CvS3 would be nice though.

Yeah, I believe Nitsuma (TvC, MvC3) pretty much confirmed that MT would be used for all future Capcom fighters going forward, even though Ono and Nitsuma are on different projects altogether. Easier for the sake of "universal tools", as well as porting to 360/PS3 and arcades.

Ono has been focused on fighting game projects of late, given the success of SFIV, so that is highly unlikely.

Not only that, but that's not even Ono's responsibility. Everything that relates to Rockman on a day to day basis, that's Horinouchi. Furthermore, the reason Ono had to see ol boy Inafking at all, was due to the fact that Inafune's the head of Capcom R&D. So he had to get an idea green-lighted by him, before some thing can even get started.


ANY WAY....Ono either needs to deliver on a game that basically can be a proper follow-up to Vampire Savior or better. Savior is still played in Japan to this day, so I would like to think that a new game would have to do more focus on satiating those players, first and foremost.

After all, as was said in the previous topic about this news: the one good thing about marketing a new Vampire/Darkstalkers game in the West? Besides the relative few, like myself, who actually do/did play the game on a decent competitive tip? No expectations! :lol

Yes, please:

A new Darkstalkers using MT Framework (and well, SFIV engine was sort of a MT Framework modified version for fighting games), developed by the SFIV team, shaders emulating Bengus' artstyle, all the characters of the series + some new ones and online modes.

And forget Morrigan's sprite :p

Title raised my hopes, the pictures dashed them in one fell swoop. Sadly that indeed seems to be the Street Fighter II: Champion Edition artwork.

Shame, because Darkstalkers with the SFIV engine would be a dream.

Unless this means Something like "Super Street Fighter 4 Champion edition", wich i find HIGHLY unlikely, i don't see how that artwork would mean anything in the context of the project ....

I'm betting the really important stuff is the huge amount of papers under then ... the yellow box with japanese letters

Back in the heyday of the fighting game genre, Darkstalkers was the only title that had any lasting appeal to me. I would be so down for a sequel.

Last time we did this, nobody believed that it was a picture of the returning 3s cast in SSF4. Now we have an opportunity to see who can't convince the most people again! :D

if it turns out to be another vampire game, MvC3 officially fell off my radar

I'm keeping my expectations realistic though. It's probably about Arcade SSFIV and possibly having new characters.

I almost hate thinking this, but a Darkstalkers on its own doesn't seem like it'd be bigger than Super Street Fighter IV. I'd love to be proven wrong, but for now I suspect another Fighting Jam or crossover (which I still doubt due to MvC3, but if it is another crossover then maybe it's...
Darkstalkers vs. Mortal Kombat
. Or
Tekken vs. Street Fighter
).

I think it will be a long time before SNK will agree to such a thing. In the last collaboration between the two companies, Capcom basically made all the money from the deal, while SNK ended up with practically nothing to show for it. (It happening in the midst of SNK's death and rebirth didn't help.)

Maybe if/when SNK's KOFXIII becomes the start of something great for SNK, then maybe SNK will feel confident enough to start branching out once more. Until then...

I couldn't be more ready for this; I love the style of the Darkstalkers series compared to other fighters.

Meaty throws? WTF? SF4 doesn't have meaty throws.

:lol ya it does. You can throw someone before they are even on their feet 100% (hence meaty). No other fighting game is like that. The fact that you can also meaty command throw is just down right retarded. Try it for your self.

The heck are you even talking about? Is this a complaint because you keep getting thrown on wake-up or something? The reversal window and easy inputs I can agree with but this throwing stuff makes no sense.

No it's a complaint because it's another option in the game that makes no sense. Meaty attacks barely work in this game, but meaty throws are viable? Come the fuck on.

I meaty throw people all the time because they don't expect being thrown during wake up frames. Sure you can reversal, but that's' not always reliable against a person who baits it. It's pretty much part of the meta game anyway now, same with crouch tech.

Anyway, I'm done arguing over that game.

The Blanka figure would suggest that it's not Darkstalkers. I'd like to see CvS3 but I'm sure there are a lot of licensing issues to deal with if they want to do that again.

The blanka figure is irrelevant, it's just a recurring joke in the twitter.

Darkstalkers 3 is one of my favorite fighting games of all time but I have little faith in it translating to 3-D well.

The animation of some characters would be very difficult(Victor, Jedah, Q-Bee) and some would be near impossible(Raptor, Rikuo, Anakaris).

But I'll take any Darkstalkers.
