And now Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has told fans if they want a new entry into the franchise: keep talking about it.
I always try and talk about Darkstalkers during interviews, he said, because I want to show Capcom that there is a demand for a new game."
He concluded: I am desperate to make this game."
There definitely is demand for the game. Capcom seem intent on listening to fan feedback, particularly when it comes to fighting games (Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is no coincedence) so we suppose if Darkstalkers comes up enough on blogs just like this (and y'know, the bigger ones too) there's always a chance of the game getting the green light.
If you're interested in a new Darkstalkers, drop a line in the comments.
