Darkstalkers 3 To Be Resurrected On PS3, PS Vita
Capcom's preparing another one of their old fighting games for a re-release. The ESRB has rated Darkstalkers 3 for the PS3 and PS Vita, a sure-fire sign that the game's going to arrive on PSN soon.
Darkstalkers 3 will be the second game in the series to be sold through PSN. The original Darkstalkers was released in digital form last November. Darkstalkers's re-release was also outed by the ESRB.
Darkstalkers is a series of supernatural fighting games. If you spend your days surfing pictures of busty vampires (you know it to be true), you've no doubt stumbled upon a few drawings of unofficial series mascot Morrigan (above). D3 took the series in a new direction by introducing one-round battles, health regeneration, and "Dark Force" special abilities.
Could these remakes be a sign that Capcom is on the verge of announcing a new Darkstalkers game? Maybe. It's also possible that Capcom is using the re-releases to gauge fan interest before they commit to a current-gen game. Either way, it shows that they haven't forgotten about this old series and that's encouraging to see.
