SFIV Producer "Desperate" To Make Another Darkstalkers
If you're not familiar, you should Wiki the name "Darkstalkers" (is "Wiki" a verb now?); it's a franchise that has been around since 1994 and the die-hard followers have been begging for a new installment.
The good news? The man who helped bring the acclaimed Street Fighter franchise back to life, Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono, is apparently trying to convince his company that there's enough fan demand for another Darkstalkers. According to what Ono told VideoGamesDaily, the whispers that a new title is in the works may or may not be true. The bottom line is that he most certainly wants to make a new Darkstalkers title and he sorta makes it sound like the ultimate decision will rely on acquired fan clamor. Said Ono:
"Yes I always try and talk about Vampire (Darkstalkers) during interviews because I want to show Capcom that there is a demand for a new game. I am desperate to make this game!"
So the question is, do you believe there are enough fans out there who will support such a project? Are you one of them? And if you're a follower, how should Ono and Capcom approach a new title? At the very least, another one may spark another cosplay wave that results in pictures like these...maybe that's reason enough to beg Capcom for a new Darkstalkers. If you thought it was hard to find such a pic, just go to Google Images and type in "Darkstalkers and Morrigan." Yeah. What's up with that?
