While many of us were having dinner with our significant others or devouring chocolates, Capcom was all business yesterday. Street Fighter producer and total ham Yoshinori Ono teased at Comic-Con that "the Darkstalkers are not dead," and a very suspicious trademark filing (dated yesterday) has shown up from Capcom Japan:
Can it possibly be? After last appearing in a series collection on the PSP and the first game showing up on PSN, can the Darkstalkers fighting games be making a comeback? Anything is possible, as Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat and The King of Fighters have all made similar resurrections in recent years.
Let the speculation begin! In the meantime, I'll just leave some impressive Darkstalkers artwork from Capcom legend Bengus here:
Do you think this means we're getting a Darkstalkers revival? Personally, I'm hoping for King of Fighters XIII-style hand-drawn animation, but that's kind of a stretch--what about you?
