How do you casual-ize a game like Darkstalkers though? Slow down the combat back to like it was in the first game? Fewer special moves? More tits?
>>
Capcom is still good at being technically impressive. It's other aspects of a game they fuck up, like microtransactions, on-disc DLC, PC port performance/existence, etc.
>>
Honestly, what's so good about this that people care? What makes it so different compared to other fighters besides the furshit characters?
>>

>>315328878
Fast combat, animu, decent spritework, and furshit characters.
>>
>>315328878
In street fighter you don't jump. Darkstalkers is all about jumping. People say the game is mashy, but it always brought interesting things, like EX moves, advancing guard/push blocks, extra hits on hardknockdown, dashing.
>>
>>315328683
First step is to make it 2.5D, though it doesn't effect gameplay it just wouldn't be a bad Capcom fighter without 2.5D.

Slow down the pacing.

Radically change how characters are played (not necessarily a bad thing).

Add a final component that fucks what's left up. DLC, shortcuts, gems, bad online etc.

Steam/PSN port when?

Darkstalkers 3/Vampire Savior was one of the few capcom fighters that was balanced for its time. Also it was good from an artistic perspective. The "furry" characters you mention are only a wolfman and the other is just a girl with catpaws, they're not even the bad kind of furry.
>>
Probably. Ask again after Capcom is done milking SFV.
>>
>>315326762
don't ask here, no one has played it and is just a morrigan dump.

>>315328878

>>
>>315329429

You have pic related on the PSP (maybe Vita), I don't think it will ever be ported elsewere.

Also, that's not exactly the same game, obviously, but you can check Killer Instinct 2014, which is pretty fun with a roster similar to Vampire.
>>
I wonder if Sony would help them fund a Darkstalkers game.
>>
>>315329987

Again, maybe after SFV.

Though Heaven help us if Microsoft does instead...
>>
>>315329429
>>315329549

Just get fightcade with vampire Savior/Hunter. Resurrection is also on PSN, the chronicle ports weren't the true versions of the games, even with the added content.
>>
>>315330350
Would Microsoft even want to touch another fighting game after Killer instinct? Were they even happy with it?
>>
>>315330350

Microsoft does not care, they have KI.
I'm sure Sony will not care because of Street Fighter V.
Nintendo are dummies.
>>
>>315330621

They're still supporting it and porting it to PC, so apparently so.

But with how MS is these days, who knows what they're thinking.
>>
Lets face it. Even if DS4 did get announced, everyone would start losing their shit about how the game wouldn't use 2D sprites like the old games and it would be nothing but image dumps over the girls.

>>315326762
yep. hardly anyone here plays it. If you try to have a serious discussion about the game then you won't get that many replies.

But start an image dump thread about the game's girls and you bet it'll hit the bump limit
>>
>>315330359
This.

VS fags should be happy with what they've got and play on FightCade or preferably locally on arcades where available.

Even if Capcom were to venture back to the franchise you'd be happier playing the originals.
>>
>>315330987

Anyone who honestly thinks Capcom will still use 2D is deluding themselves.

Its a shame, but a 2D game just wouldn't be feasible to them right now.
>>
Who Vampire hunter here.
Nobody plays that on fightcade, and Savior is 2fast4me

It literally pioneered most vs mechanics, and as far as fighting games goes it's the most fast paced with arguably one of the biggest focuses on air pressure.

The only black sheep in the series really is Vampire Hunters 2 which killed air pressure, and general balance decisions really killed the original appeal of the series.

I'm actually curious what a new Darkstalkers game would be like. I wonder if it would be Night Warriors or Vampire Savior styled. I think Ono would have made it Night Warriors style because its closer to what they're used to making.
>>
>>315334242
It would probably be similar to Vampire Hunters 2 system, which would probably alienate core fans but a new game would definitely drive interest and certainly make main-stage at evo at least.
>>
>>315334242
I'd expect Warriors style for the sake of convenience.
>>
So how long until this devolves into a fap thread?
>>
>>315328878
Basically any fighter that isn't a straight up SF2 clone owes something to it.
>>
>>315334242
Night Warriors was the more casual-friendly of the two, and that showed in the sales figures.
>>315329008
>animu
It's way more cartoon than animu.
>decent sprites
"Decent"? It was a fucking quantum leap visually for its time. Go back and play all the fighters everyone was making form 1993-1994. None of them look any better than SF2. People were comparing it to Disney.

I've been thinking that a f2p game could help gain interest in the series. I didn't think that Rising Thunder would be as popular as it was, but being free definitely got people who wouldn't have looked twice at it to try it. There are cool lore based things that casuals can cling on to if they decide to expand on that as well.

Main thing really is just make a new game. Even if it's total shit, it'll bring much needed blood interested in the series and VS3 can have a bigger playerbase on Fightcade or hell, port up >>315329429 since the new game reminded people it exists and is worth getting into since it's still supported by capcom.

Ideally I'd like the sequel to be good, even if it's just Night Warriors or worse, hunters I'd be happy for variety.

just change the genre

darkstalkers moba
darkstalkers grand strategy
darkstalkers CCG

More like DEADSTALKERS
>>
A new Darkstalkers would just end up with the Skullgirls audience of people who love the character designs but can't be assed to play the game for more then 2 seconds.
>>
>>315328878
Introduced all sorts of new mechanics to the genre. Guard cancels, chain combos, air blocking, ES moves to name a few.
Was a breath of fresh air thematically and stunning visually. This is right in the middle of the SF2 clone era, when everyone and their dog was making their own martial arts tournament fighting game,with its own karate dude, it's own Bruce Lee ripoff, it's own boxer, it's own wrestler, etc. Then you get a game full of cartoony monsters who do stuff like spitting snowmen at you, turning their limbs into chainsaws, and squeezing you in half with giant ghost hands. And this was all rendered in animation that was by far heads above the rest at the time.
>>
>>315336181
Most people who buy Street Fighter or Marvel don't play it for more than 2 seconds either.
>>
>>315335878
a small following in japan but the rest of the world doesn't give a fuck about the series.
>>
>>315328878
I wasn't aware vampires, succubi, zombies, Frankenstein monsters, ghosts, mummies, aliens, robots, jiangshi, dhampirs, and Red Riding Hood were considered furshit now.
>>
>>315336605
A small following? As long as they were actually making the damn games, they were all making the top 5 of the charts.
>>
I'd kill to see this series on the SFV engine

let's be honest a 2D game ain't happening from capcom
>>
>>315334242
Well first of all it'd have to be 3D no more 2D sprite shit. This might make autists cry but sprites don't sell and no Japan is not a big enough market fuck you for being retarded.
>>
>>315337384
>let's be honest a 2D game ain't happening from capcom

anyone with half a brain knows that if DS4 came out it'd be 2.5D

The massive dickriding people do with the 2D animations of the arcade games annoys the fuck out of me because while they were very nice and pretty advanced for the time, it makes me think that nobody would fucking touch a new game if it didn't use 2d sprites.
>>
>>315337384
3D could have great animations, or at least I think so. I mean I don't expect Capcom to pay for it, but yeah they COULD make it right pretty.
>>
>>315337837
One of Darkstalkers' main draws were its visuals. So that kind of comes with the territory. I wouldn't mind if they went 2.5D, so long s they put effort into recreating the trademark animation style as faithfully as possible.
>>
>>315335741
Felicia Waifufag who only causually played 3 and chronicle.

Top of my head: Talbain, Ankaris, Donnovan, Jeddah, Raptor, Q-Bee, Lillith, Bishamon, fish-dude, Demitri, the snowman, BB Hood, Leilei...
>>
>>315337851
Ono said they would have to make new tech to get the animations just right for 3D. What they used for dhalsim but expanded on.

Also, SFV animations seem to be miles ahead of SFIV ones. They can probably pull it off.
>>
>>315337837
>it makes me think that nobody would fucking touch a new game if it didn't use 2d sprites

nigga if the SFV engine was Darkstalkers right now people would be losing their shit and we'd have threads daily

the autist neckbeards that want to cling on to the nostalgia of 2D sprites are killing the game they supposedly love

Well, at its very core its dead. But it lives on in a miserable half existence as a polyp that Capcom Vs series drains from it.

So its like its undead.
>>
>>315330721
>I'm sure Sony will not care because of Street Fighter V.

Combofiend said Sony basically wants to be the home of fighting games this gen with the PS4 and they've hinted that the Partnership between Capcom and Sony is going to go further than just SF5.

They'd have a better chance taking it to Sony after SF5 does good to see if they can get that same deal, instead of trying to fund it themselves
>>
It got a PSP port of one of the rarest game in the franchise 10 years ago.
It got a collection with all the games with "new" shit like Dee for the PS2.
It also got a port with online mode for the PS3/360 two years ago.
Not to mention the characters still show up in every Capcom crossover.

It got it better than most 90's non-Capcom fighters like this shit >>315339065

>>315339065
they still play it on acho same for fagstalkers

>>
>>315339710

>Marvel vs anything.

Marvel yanked the license from just about everyone and started making horrible mobile games. And contrary to popular belief, disney didn't tell them to do it. They let marvel do whatever they want for the most part.
>>
>>315336143
>moba

Absolutely not. A game similar to those Naruto Storm games probably.

Or Darkstalkers RPG whereas you play as a party of the good guys, and the game introduces some new characters.
>>
>>315339710
Considering Vampire Savior is the backbone of what made VS even work, you are sort of right. Capcom obviously wants to follow up SF5 with another fighters so it'll most likely be an old requested series or Capcom vs Namco. Darkstalkers is probably one of the most popular old series so either or.

>But Marvel

Disney owns them now and doesn't want to renew the license so good luck with that.
>>
>>315340040
thank you based marvel eat a dick /v/
>>
>>315340391
>Darkstalkers is probably one of the most popular old series
After you get past Street Fighter and licensed/crossover stuff, it is by far the most popular of Capcom's fighting IPs. All the others (Cyberbots, Star Gladiator, Red Earth, Rival Schools, Tech Romancer) don't come close.
>>
>>315338869
im up for some hunter pham

>>315340391
>Capcom vs Namco

I don't think anyone is going to want to actually touch that since SFxT was a horror show and TekkenxStreet Fighter isn't even out yet.
>>
Most of the moves would look like shit.
Anakaris would be removed.
The little gore/violence that it has would be toned down even more.
>>
>>315330987
Talbain, Raptor and The golem I keep forgetting the name would probably look pretty rad in 3D if they made some alterations to better fit the new style.
