Darkstalkers Coming Soon to PSN


Yes, it’s true! Darkstalkers is, indeed, headed to PSN. Darkstalkers landed in arcades in early 1994 and later arrived on the original PlayStation in 1996. It was a title that set the tone for Street Fighter Alpha’s release thereafter. We have gotten a release date from Capcom; currently set at November 29th. Price has yet to be announced. I, personally, recall spending countless dollars on this bad boy my junior year in high School and cant wait to revisit it on my PS3. Here is a glimpse of what to expect below.

    I’m nor sure if I recall playing this game on arcades, not the kind of of title I’d pick up on PSN though.

    and knowing the way capcom has been treating their fighting games. it might be redone with some online capabilities I would hope.

    I told them to not allow a user by the name of Eden to obtain any trophies. the lack of HD next to the name clearly is a sign this a port of the PSX title which lacked a few animations do to the limited ram in the PSX at the time. Regardless Capcom fighting fans like myself will eat this up day 1.

    the lack of HD next to the name clearly is a sign this a port of the PS1 title

    really? it couldn’t be just a straight port of the arcade?
