All You Need to Know About Darkstalkers: Resurrection



Fighting fans are in for a treat early next year in the form of Darkstalkers: Resurrection. This creature-packed slugfest is a monstrous value, featuring both Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3 for a mere $14.99 on PSN or  paltry 1200 Microsoft Space Bucks. These classic brawlers have been stolen from their crypt at Capcom HQ and resurrected by developer Iron Galaxy with hopes of making this the definitive Darkstalkers experience.

Darkstalkers: Resurrection offers a host of features and enhancements to the putrefied pugilism such as:

  • UPGRADED VISUALS: The games can be played with a variety of HD filtering options along with several viewing modes ranging from full screen to over the shoulder arcade mode for those who want to re-live the classic arcade experience.
  • ONLINE FUNCTIONALITY: GGPO-enabled online game play helps create a virtually lag-free fighting game experience that now includes upgraded matchmaking, with additional options such as region matching, ping lock and ping display.
  • REPLAY SHARING: Players will be able to save replays of their match and upload it to either the game’s match server or directly to YouTube.
  • SPECTATOR AND WATCH WITH FRIENDS MODES: Players waiting for their turn to fight will be able to participate by viewing and discussing ongoing matches with Spectator Mode. “Watch With Friends” mode allows players in a private room to download or stream matches, where they can provide comments and discuss in real time.
  • UNLOCKABLE CONTENT FOR FANS: Tutorial Mode teaches useful strategies through in-depth lessons for each character. When challenges are successfully accomplished, during Tutorial Mode or during regular game play, points are earned which can be redeemed to unlock vault items such as concept artwork, videos and more.

If Iron Galaxy is able to fulfill their commitment to make this monster melee a lag-free experience fighting fans will be in for a real treat when Darkstalkers: Resurrection is available early next year.
