SDCC 2012: Yoshinori Ono Wants To Talk Darkstalkers, Capcom Won’t Let Him

Posted on July 15, 2012 AT 12:30pm

All of you Darkstalkers fans aren’t alone in wanting a new release for the under-appreciated fighting game series. Yoshinori Ono wants another one, too, but Capcom just isn’t letting him talk about it.

However, it does sound like there’s good news on the horizon. Siliconera relays the following account from Capcom’s 25th anniversary celebration of Street Fighter at San Diego Comic-Con:

Ono said that if you’ve been to these Comic-Con panels before, you’ll know that he’s asked fans to hold up $5 or $10 bills to show support for a Darkstalkers game and he snaps a photograph to take back with him to Capcom as evidence of fan support.

This time, however, Ono stated: “This year, you don’t have to do that, and it’s not necessarily bad news!” Ono then followed up, clarifying that he has to be careful what he says or he’ll get in trouble.

For people who don’t know, Ono is notoriously coy when talking about unannouced video game projects, and by the sound of it, he definitely has something cooking that he can’t let out of the oven just yet.

Um, I guess the point is, some of us have been starving for a new Darkstalkers game.

Usually, Capcom’s official record on the subject has been that they don’t think a new release would justify itself in raw sales. Hopefully, the gaming public gets the chance to prove them wrong.
