Rumored now. But yeah, this is probably happening.

I feel so bad for everyone who reads that article and doesn't realize just who Ono is.

Also, if it is real, inb4 obligatory "day-1 DLC character", because it will happen.

Does Capcom want me to hack my 360? Because shit like this makes me think they do. (Wouldn't care about using XBL, since I haven't connected my 360 to the internet since before the most recent menu change and choose not to because I think the new menu sucks ass.)

Probably a crowd favorite that should have been in the game from the start. Someone like Donovan or Raptor.

If Donovan is DLC, I'm officially going to Japan just to destroy Capcom's HQ.

#6 Michi on 7 years ago

I hope this happens. I loved playing Darkstalkers on the original PlayStation so much, and it'd rock seeing all the characters in the Street Fighter 4 style (that is, if that's the art direction they go with).

Nah, it'd be Jon Talbain.

"Hey look, it's that wolf guy you all like that we kept pretending never existed! He's back! But only if you give us extra money to unlock him, suckers!"

And he'll already be on the disc.

And he'll be available through preorder only.

#10 AJ the Collector on 7 years ago

They'll also make sure Felicia is even dumber somehow, nerf Raptor, exclude Lilith entirely, give ill-fitting English voice actors to everyone, and have Rikuo killed off for real right in the game's intro. And have characters from other franchises make stupid-ass cameo appearances. Maybe the 360 version will feature Master Chief. And I hope to God I'm not jinxing us all with my snark.

Is this really an entire thread of people complaining about a game that's still a rumor at best?

Good job internet.

EDIT: I troll. TBH, I would like to see a new DS game, but man, they REALLY need to up the ante in terms of content. As much as I rag on Mortal Kombat, MK9 single player options were a ton better than anything Japan has offered in a fighting game, and it's high time Capcom tries to match, without excessive DLC nonsense.

#12 vampricyoda on 7 years ago

But MK9 really was DLC Crazy. But at least they're releasing a collector's version with all the DLC on disk.

Ya know. I was tempted to put in "In b4 AJ Crescent finds something to complain about" Since, ya know, can't mention Darkstalkers here without that.

You ask me, Darkstalkers doesn't have a big enough cast to get away with DLC for characters unless we get new ones. Though what stereotypical monsters are left? You could dip into human monsters and make a Micheal Myers/Ghostface style slasher? A Dream Demon could work as well. I also never bought Pryon as an Alien. I also thought he was suppossed to be Satan and they just changed his back story as the first game progressed so I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of. . .ALIENS. (Greys maybe)

Wait. The plot of the game had an Alien visit earth in the past. . .leaving robots. . .

Don't you mean a kollector's version?

Joke's on you, cause pretty much everyone is finding things to complain about. Before the game is even confirmed to be real. That's Capcom for ya, we just KNOW they'll fuck it up somehow.

[QUOTE]You ask me, Darkstalkers doesn't have a big enough cast to get away with DLC for characters[/QUOTE]

But they'll do it anyway.

Actually, funny story--Pyron is based on biblical descriptions of God and angels appearing as pillars of fire and flaming wheels. These passages have even been interpreted by some as descriptions of contact with UFOs, hence Pyron is an alien.

#15 vampricyoda on 7 years ago

That awkward moment when you realized AJ Crescent and Giorgio Tsoukalo have both used the same argument.

I lol'd a little too much at that one.
