Darkstalkers Resurrection is Here

Darkstalkers Resurrection

As a long time fan of the series, I am pretty excited to see this re-release of the classic fighting game (even though I don't have anything I can play it on).  The game is available on the PlayStation Network today for $14.99, and will be available on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow for 1200 MS Points. 

Do yourself a favor and buy it.  You know you want a fighting game where you can have a rocker zombie fight a werewolf. Or the scantily clad cat-girl versus the scantily clad succubus. 

Hit the jump for the press release.

Capcom is thrilled to confirm that Darkstalkers Resurrection is now available to download in North America on PlayStation Network (PSN) for $14.99. On March 13, the game will be released in Europe on PSN (€14.99 / £11.99) and across all territories on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.

On which side will you stand when darkness falls?

The beloved Darkstalkers fighting game franchise is back and ready to take the fight to current gen consoles. Featuring a unique and colorful cast of characters blended with fast-paced fighting action, Darkstalkers Resurrection contains two games (Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3), for the price of one. The two-for-one priced combo breathes new life into each game with a slew of features including robust GGPO-enabled online game play, HD graphical filtering with multiple viewing options, replay sharing, Spectator Mode, in-game achievements, Tutorial Mode and an unlockable vault filled with concept artwork, videos and more.

Building upon the online system previously introduced in Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition and Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, the online gameplay in Darkstalkers Resurrections now includes upgraded matchmaking with additional options such as region matching, ping lock and ping display. The Tutorial Mode contains trials to help players deepen their knowledge of the characters and their specific strategies.
