On this week’s podcast, Tom makes his grand return and brings free chocolates for everyone! Unfortunately, they’ve been in his pocket since his trip back from Utah so they’re all a giant melted mess filled with chucks of dryer lint, change and old receipts. We all politely declined.
It didn’t hurt his feelings though as he was in high spirits as we went on to talk about Sega and some Acclaim goodness for nearly an hour! We even finally made it to Shadow Man on the Sega Dreamcast, but don’t worry listener, as we still have a couple Acclaim on Sega episodes to go.
Darkstalkers Resurrection will be getting an update on Friday April 12th which will add new fight request features to arcade and training modes, and also patches a number of bug fixes including replay upload issues. The game collection is available on XBLA and PSN and features the two classic Capcom fighters, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, both of which were originally available on the Sega Saturn.
The update announcement was made by Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano via the Capcom Unity blog. He also announced a new Darkstalkers themed menu available at the Capcom Bar in Shinjuku, Tokyo until April 14th. Check out the menu after the jump!
Two new trailers have been revealed for the upcoming Sega Saturn fighting revamp, Darkstalkers Resurrection. This HD remake will feature the second and third game’s in Capcom’s unique series with redone visuals and an online multiplayer mode. To promote the game Capcom has released a few character specific trailers, such as the one featured above which details Lord Raptor, a rock musician from beyond the grave.
When you hit the jump you’ll be treated to a look at Victor, a hulking monster who will be sure to dominate matches across the globe when the game hits XBLA and PSN next month.
A game that all good Sega Addicts should be excited about, Darkstalkers Resurrection, has been delayed. According to Capcom Japan, Street Fighter’s awesome cousin will not be hitting XBLA and PSN until March. There is some good news here, though. One of the reasons cited was quality control on the online component. Since Capcom’s ‘ship it then patch it’ approach to online play these last few years has been incredibly annoying, this might be a sign that they are learning.
That’s right–time again for another frustrating news story about the massive crossover game you will never get to play! We’ve been drowned in wave after wave of awesomely obscure character announcements for months now, but if you thought the reveals would end at the game’s crazy roster of heroes, well, think again!
Japanese gaming mag Famitsu has revealed a group of enemies that players will be facing in this epic RPG. In addition to a handful of original foes created for the game, Project X Zone will include Ciseaux and Prelude of Sakura Wars, Lord Raptor of Darkstalkers, Selvaria Bles of Valkyria Chronicles, and Vava of Mega Man X.
While I’m ashamed to admit that I have not gotten to try either Sakura Wars or Valkyria Chronicles, I’m still delighted to see such deep and obscure characters referenced, even on the enemy’s side. I just hope the antagonist reveals don’t stop there. Give me some Lan Di!
Did you know that Darkstalkers 3 is available for download on the Playstation Network? Okay, you probably did. We missed this re-release but with all the rumors about a possible Darkstalkers 4 floating around, it’s time to play catch up.
Siliconera has more screen shots of everyone’s favorite, upcoming, not-going-to-be-released-outside-of-japan game, Project X Zone. Morrigan, a long time favorite of Sega Addicts, features prominently. Her artwork is very pronounced.
Cue me finally becoming interested in this game. This week’s copy of Famitsu reveals six new characters for the Project X Zone crossover RPG. Dead Rising’s Frank West and Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers join the fray from the Capcom side, Alisa and Soma from Namco’s God Eater are in, and from the Sega side, Zephyr and Leanne/Reanbell from Resonance of Fate have been added.
I wasn’t too interested in this for awhile, especially after seeing who’s representing my beloved Tekken. But after this news, being such a huge fan of RoF, I’ve done a complete 180 on it. I’m ridiculously happy to see Sega hasn’t completely forgotten the cult RPG. Do any of these new additions interest you? Tell us in the comments.
Darkstalkers 3, which came out in 1997 for PlayStation One and the Sega Saturn, will have a PSN re-release as a PSOne classic title this week. The first Darkstalkers was released end of November last year on the very same service and got quite some attention and praise. Ever since then, new rumours about a possible Darkstalkers 4 have been popping up. Recently, a new trademark file for Darkstalkers has appeared out of nowhere. Maybe these re-releases show that Capcom is testing the water for a reboot?

According to a rumor over at Venturebeat, a fourth Darkstalkers game is currently in development. According to the site, Yoshinoro Ono, who is heading the development of both Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter x Tekken will be the producer for this anticipated sequel too.
I don’t know about you, but this would be amazing if it was true. I know some people here at Sega-Addicts feel the same about a potential sequel…
