Don't hold your breath for Darkstalkers 4, Capcom vs. SNK 4, Darkstalkers HD Remix


Along with the sad news that there will be no Marvel vs. Capcom 3 demo, Capcom’s Christian Svensson took to the Unity message boards and explained why we haven’t heard any news on Darkstalkers or the other favorite versus title, Capcom vs. SNK.

"Several reasons (and these go for any "why aren’t you developing XYZ fighting game right now")… right now we’re focused on Street Fighter X Tekken, SSFIV: 3D Edition, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online edition, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and maybe something else somewhere… that’s more than enough fighting products for an audience to digest in the near term without overly cannibalizing each other.

Second, we also only have so many development resources. Not just any team can make a credible fighting game and we have loads of requests for lots of titles that we don’t have the resources to make.

Thirdly, while we listen very closely to fan requests, any product decisions has to overlay positively against strategic objectives and be prioritized against product viability.

Lastly, it takes years to make a game (that’s multiple years), even an HD Remix, so while we may get to them some day, that day is still likely to be a ways off."

This is perfectly understandable, if not still disappointing. Capcom doesn’t and shouldn’t want to crowd the fighting game market with countless titles, leading to another fighting game bust as in the 90s. Yet, I still yearn to get my hands on a new Capcom vs. SNK, just so I can place my beloved Terry Bogart against Capcom characters.
