    Serriously I don't know why this game was so under the radar. It's got GREAT characters, AWSOME music and a great story. It's definately one of my favorite fighters of all time, and I hope after Street Fighter 4 that Capcom makes another Darkstalker Sequel, not a re-release. Is there anyone else out there that shares my passion?

    Heard of it? There was a freakin cartoon of it.

    I don't recall ever actually playing it though...however I'm pretty sure I know who all the characters are, especially Felicia. If you know what I mean. Because I'm not sure I do.

    Yeah Darkstalkers is great, but I've never thought of it as "under the radar". Capcom has been using Morrigan (and her sprites) alone in a ton of hi-profile games for years.

    I'd consider Guilty Gear (amazing fighter) to be more under the radar then Darkstalkers.

    i agree @ guilty gear.

    Darkstalkers was fun and lighthearted enough for me to even own it on the PS2 and i admit i abhor those 2-D fighters.

    Great series. Wouldn't mind a sequel, but only if they do it justice.

    Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


    What were we talking about? Oh yeah...
    But then it wouldn't really be Darkstalkers, would it? More to the point, if they made it into a Vampire/monster-based adventure game or a platformer of any kind, it would be CastleVania. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but Capcom already has a pretty successful series of CastleVania games called "Devil May Cry" ;)

    Well, I think Darkstalkers intentionally campier nature than DMC has the potential for an incredible wealth of gaming that extends beyond simple pugilism.

    An RPG would make me tent in seconds.

    Dude, he posted in the Go Lion thread and it was so brief I didn't realize he was back.

    I never thought of Darkstalkers as "Under the Radar".
    I am pretty sure if Street Fighter 4 does well we will see another Darkstalkers game.

    That RPG idea sounds like it could be cool.

    I think he's like a ninja, you know? Like Prowl, you know? He sneaks into threads, does his move, and then vanishes without a sound.

    The funny thing is I never left. I just didn't feel like saying anything. :p 

    You may very well be right. What Capcom should do then is what they're doing with Bionic Commando. Release a new game in the style of the original AND a brand new game with completely different mechanics. Let's not limit ourselves here ;)

    I love what they are doing to Bionick (The arcade release of the original). I wish Konami would take a hint and do this to Castlevania. I think I mentioned this before though.

    Darkstalker has some cool characters and would make for an awesome stylized RPG.
