Way back in 1995 and then again in 1997, I had the unique opportunity to play Capcom's Vampire Hunter: Darkstalkers Revenge
and Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire
in the arcades here in Japan. I can remember vividly going out to the arcades with my friends every chance we got to play those games. Usually while we stood in line to put our 100 Yen into the arcade cabinet to challenge the poor guy on the other side, the trash talking would begin and continue long after we had left the arcades. Even though we would end up losing more games than winning them, we still had a great time and we met a lot of new Japanese friends that eventually became a part of our group of regulars.
Capcom hopes to bring back the arcade feel right into your living room with their newest XBLA title, Darkstalkers Resurrection
. To help you get into the right state of mind to start kicking your friend's or stranger's butts online, take a look at the official release video below.
