If Capcom ever decides to make a Darkstalkers 4 (or they decide to sell the IP to Arc System Works and they decide to work on it once BlazBlue is wrapped up because they don't find that much value in it anymore), given that the third game was released way back in 1997 and most of the VAs have moved on since, should the characters get new VAs? Already Morrigan Aensland, Hsien-Ko and Felicia have gotten new voice actors (Rie Tanaka, Saori Hayami and Kana Asumi respectively) as of MVC3 and Project X Zone series, so they'll reprise.

Here's my suggestions

* Demitri Maximoff - Jouji Nakata. Nobuyuki Hiyama is OK as him but he sounds to young for a badass vampire for today's standards. If anything, Jouji would make a better fit for him. Plus, it would allude to his role as Alucard (vampire) and Sol Badguy (another fighting game character). Also in the Night Warriors OVA, Demitri got a much more fitting JP VA (Akio Ohtsuka).
* Anakaris - Unshou Ishizuka. His original VA (Kan Tokumaru) is deceased.
* Rikuo - Daisuke Namikawa. I know Yuji Ueda is still around, but he needs a new VA (also Yuji has been known to voice a bunch of characters in Darkstalkers and Street Fighter games, and for the latter, many of the characters got new VAs)
* Lord Raptor - Koichi Yamadera. He voiced him in the Night Warriors OVA and he's still active. Plus it would be a bonus for him to appear alongside with Rie Tanaka (his wife, whom she voices Morrigan)
* Victor von Gerdenheim - Tetsu Inada. His original VA (Kan Tokumaru) is deceased.
* Bishamon - Kenta Miyake. His original VA (Kan Tokumaru) is deceased. Also, his only other VA (Shozo Iizuka) is too old to voice anymore.
* Sasquatch - Takaya Hashi. His original VA (Kan Tokumaru) is deceased.
* Pyron - Keiji Fujiwara. Like with Demitri, Hiyama is OK, but he needs a more fitting VA. Also, his other VA (Shinji Ogawa) is deceased.
* Donovan Baine - Jurota Kosugi. Voiced him in Darkstalkers 3 so he'll reprise. If not then Daisuke Ono since Daisuke can sound very similar to Joji Nakata (my choice for Demitri), and that both Daisuke and Jurota have voiced Jotaro Kujo.
* Lilith - Aoi Yuuki. I know Yuka Imai is still around but Aoi would be a better fit for her.
* Q-Bee - Emiri Kato. I know she has a new VA (Arisa Nishiguchi) but...
* B.B. Hood - Rie Kugimiya. Miyuki Matsushita is no longer active in the voiceover scene.
* Jedah Dohma - Takehito Koyasu. Since this would allude to Dio Brando, another similar villain and both Isshin and Takehito have voiced him.

This isn't a forum game. This shouldn't be here.

Of course, but I don't listen to much Japanese Darkstalkers.

Japanese Darkstalkers is all we'll ever hear aside from MVC3, Cross Edge and the OVA. (I gotta stop putting polls in the wrong place)
