    There's absolutely no details other than the fact that Capcom registered a new trademark for Darkstalkers.
    Siliconera.

    Can such a vanity project become real? :) 
    My vanity hopes so.

    I don't know that you'd call Darkstalkers a "new IP", per say. But I'd certainly be up for a new Darkstalkers game in the vein of SF4/SFxTekken/UMvC3.

    Smang most likely is over the moon. I doubt we will see anything for a few years or it will be just a PSP Vita game rather than a PSN/XBLA game.

    I really hope this turns out good. I really like Darkstalkers and I'd love to see it come back.

    I hope it does use some beautiful sprites because of the animations in the old games. But I know Capcom will use models. I really hope they can capture the old look and feel.

    I predict Capcom treats this like Legends 3. Tons of hype and some development, then cancelled from "lack of interest".

    Yeah, probably. Darkstalkers wasn't their most popular franchise. But I'm still hoping.


    But look at the bright side. If they do that then we'll get fatass Morrigan in the next crossover. <_<

    it was a new IP about 18 years ago bro :) 

    i'm pretty sure a new fighting game is coming, on one hand i'm happy, on the other i'm kinda dreading...

    mainly i am hoping for them to give vampire saviour the 3s online treatment, that'd be amazing! ggpo and trials etc. would be happy smang day.

    Sadly, I have fond memories of playing DS3 in an ARCADE.

    While I would support this if it got the IIIrd Strike treatment, I’m really hoping it gets the Super Street Fighter IV treatment.
    I’d love to see fully realized current-gen supers like Demitri’s Midnight Bliss.

    Fixed!
    I have fond memories of playing it in an arcade, too.

    When people asked why Demitri didn't appear in MVC3 Capcom said they were considering him but it was too much effort for them to implement MNB and so didn't add him.

    Darkstalkers 3 coming to PSN according to Joystiq. No idea how to link to the article from my phone, sorry.

    My only issue is that it will probably be the PSX version.

    Wouldn't it be great if this were some kind of 'HD Remix'?
    Alas I fear it will be the PS1 rev with missing frames and blurred graphics under the disguise of 'HD Filters'.

    Hopefully it sells well enough to warrant a true sequel.

    well the tell is that its being referred to as 'darkstalkers 3', was it ever called that in the arcades in the states? the only darkstalkers 3 i'm aware of is the ps1 version, which is the worst one in terms of conversion.

    hopefully it's a full on HD remix and they're calling it DS3 for recognition purposes :)
