He wants to prove to Capcom "there is a demand" for more Darkstalkers, the horror-brawling series, often rumoured to be coming back.
"I always try and talk about Darkstalkers during interviews,” Ono-san told , in an interview - he got his wish, “because I want to show Capcom that there is a demand for a new game." Who wouldn't want to brawl a vamp Street Fighter style?
"I am desperate to make this game!" said the Capcom exec. Surely with all that resurgence of vampires in cinema and on television, Capcom will agree and cash in? Do you enjoy a good 2D street brawler now and then, even with the odd monster?
