Capcom are known for several high-caliber titles ranging from the survival horror series known as Resident Evil and Biohazard to arguably the most popular fighting game series known to man, Street Fighter. What many people don’t know is that Capcom has also made another series over the years called Darkstalkers, which premiered in the arcades and was even seen on Sega’s Dreamcast. However, Street Fighter IV’s producer hasn’t forgotten about the series, and has been looking to create a new Darkstalkers title for quite some time.
During an interview between videogamesdaily and Yoshinori Ono, Producer of Street Fighter IV, Yoshinori showed strong interest in bringing back the Darkstalkers fighting series made by Capcom in the 90’s. During the interview Yoshinori stated the following:
“Yes I always try and talk about Vampire (Darkstalkers) during interviews because I want to show Capcom that there is a demand for a new game. I am desperate to make this game!”
It’s hard to tell why Capcom hasn’t listened to Yoshinori’s call for a new Darkstalkers title, but it’s safe to guess that Capcom doesn’t believe there is a strong enough demand for the series to warrant a next-generation title. If fans vocalize their interest in a new Darkstalkers title, there is a chance that Capcom will listen. Hopefully fans are able to drive Capcom to bring the vampiric Darkstalkers series to Sony’s PlayStation 3 platform.
