First Look: DarkStalkers Ressurection

The beloved Darkstalkers™ fighting game franchise is back and ready to take the fight to current gen consoles. Featuring a unique and colourful cast of characters blended with fast-paced fighting action, Darkstalker Resurrection contains two games (Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalker 3), for the price of one. Each game has a slew of features added including: robust GGPO-enabled online game play, HD graphical filtering with multiple viewing options, replay sharing, Spectator Mode, in-game achievements, Challenge/Tutorial Mode and an un-lockable vault filled with concept artwork, videos and more. Darkstalkers Resurrection will be available to download early 2013 for £11.99 on PSN and 1600 MSP on XBLA.

Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge includes 14 characters based on classic horror and folklore monsters. The game utilises the 3-punch, 3-kick system familiar to Street Fighter fans, but innovates on it with air blocking, air dashing and ability to perform extended chain combos. Additionally, there are multiple Special Gauge bars that can be built up to unleash ES and EX moves. Darkstalkers 3 introduces additional characters into the Darkstalkers universe including Morrigan’s shadow, Lilith and soul-devouring queen Q-Bee. The game adds a one-round system for even faster-paced gameplay and the Dark Force system which gives each character a unique ability that can be performed for a limited time.
• FAITHFUL RECREATION – Both Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3 are
   faithful to the original arcade release of the games.
• UPGRADED VISUALS – The games can be played with a variety of HD filtering options along with
   several viewing modes ranging from full screen to over the shoulder arcade mode for those who
   want to re-live the classic arcade experience.
• ONLINE FUNCTIONALITY – GGPO-enabled online game play helps create a virtually lag-free
   fighting game experience that now includes upgraded matchmaking, with additional options
   such as region matching, ping lock and ping display.
• REPLAY SHARING – Players will be able to save replays of their match and upload it to either
   the game’s match server or directly to YouTube.
• SPECTATOR AND WATCH WITH FRIENDS MODES – Players waiting for their turn to fight will be
   able to participate by viewing and discussing ongoing matches with Spectator Mode. “Watch With
   Friends” mode allows players in a private room to download or stream matches, where they can
   provide comments and discuss in real time.
• UNLOCKABLE CONTENT FOR FANS – Challenge/Tutorial Mode features in-depth tutorials that
   teach useful strategies for each character. When challenges are successfully accomplished,
  during Challenge/Tutorial Mode or during regular game play, points are earned which can be
  redeemed to unlock vault items such as concept artwork, videos and more.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
