Capcom’s latest fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken is almost complete and it seems like they already have another fighting game on the plate already. Capcom Japan has filed a trademark for Darkstalkers, a game that hasn’t seen a new franchise release since – well, since forever in gaming years.
For those who don’t remember or were too young to remember it, Darkstalkers is a fighting game that featured classic movie monsters as fighters instead of martial artists. You had Demitri the vampire prince, Morrigan the succubus and much more.
It played like traditional Capcom fighters in the sense that it incorporated six buttons and traditional motions to pull off special moves. The game garnered a following due to its appealing cast of characters, gorgeous (at the time) special moves and supers.
Of course, this should all be taken with a grain of salt as Capcom has not officially commented on it yet; but one wonders why the publisher would even file a trademark if it didn’t have anything planned, no?
