‘Embrace The Dark’ With the Darkstalkers Resurrection Launch Trailer

Darkstalkers-Resurrection-Q-Bee-and-RikuoDarkstalkers Resurrection launches this week on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network, so Capcom have made a nice trailer to remind us.

Developed by Iron Galaxy Studios, the chaps behind the lovely Street Fighter III: Third Strike update, the game is a collection of two games; Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3.

First seen in 1994 the supernatural fighting series was a post-Street fighter project that experimented with many features we now see as standard for the genre. It expanded special moves with meter chomping EX versions, for instance; something the Street Fighter series would quickly adopt into its own DNA.

The franchise was also the birthplace of bosom bearing succubus Morrigan who is a regular chest in Capcom crossover projects such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Project X Zone.

Back in 2011 God is a Geek mash-man Sean Smith even found a spot for a Darkstalkers entry in his Top Ten 2D Fighters.

Still not sold? Well the official God is a Geek Darkstalkers Resurrection review is currently bubbling away in the ol’ opinion pot, so it should be good to share soon. Until then,why not enjoy the release trailer?

Darkstalkers Resurrection will be released on March 13 for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.

    Need to hand my fighting game credentials in, because I don’t think I’ve ever played a Darkstalkers game! At least, I don’t remember playing one.
