Capcom has revealed that the coin-op arcade classic fighting game, Darkstalkers, will be hitting the North American PlayStation Network on the 29th November, 2011, while the European PSN has yet to be dated.
Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has twittered that an "unexpected surprise" is due from developer NetherRealm Studios, but it isn't connected to this year's Mortal Kombat.
Answering some barraged questions from fans, Boon also ruled out arcade shooter The Grid. Naturally speculation is real high about an all-new Mortal Kombat instalment.
Capcom has released the full DLC schedule for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Each of the ten costume packs will include four or five outfits. Each DLC pack will cost $3.99 USD or 320 Microsoft Points. The entirety of the DLC can be purchased as a Value Pack for a one time fee of $19.99 USD (1600 Microsoft Points).
It has been confirmed by Capcom that Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors will be heading for the PlayStation Network, and is "currently slated for a late November release."
It was spotted among the ESRB ratings database. Right now it's set to delight fans of the early 1996 PSone original this November 29th, but it's strictly provisional right now.
Japanese controller manufacturer Hori has announced that a special new Soul Calibur V-themed fight stick will be released in January 2012.
If you wanted Mega Man in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 then the best you'll get is the DLC skin for Zero, reveals the brawler's strategy guide. No word on pricing or release yet.
Wipe away those tears of anguish, video gamer. Capcom at least promise there's more alternate costume DLC on the way "in the coming weeks." They tease those for pre-order.
Capcom's Yoshinori Ono explains how the team go about developing Street Fighter x Tekken, which blends two brawlers with different styles. At least Tekken was inspired by Street Fighter.
It became clear early on that just moving Tekken over "wouldn't work," but it's a 3D game that "operates a lot like a 2D one," which meant the controls would "translate pretty well."
One of the most beloved side scrolling beat'em ups, The Simpsons Arcade Game, may finally be hitting home release for the first time since it was released on MS-DOS and the Commodore 64. The arcade hit itself was a parody of such games as Double Dragon and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but the gameplay was solid and fun, and the dialog was witty and clever.
Capcom's Seth Killian, prophet of the brawler, has come to the defence of their 'assist gems' feature in the upcoming Street Fighter x Tekken crossover. It's a "friendly way" to help new players.
Their power in-game has been "somewhat severely overstated," said Killian. He admits they "unfortunately" always showed them off when the meter was full.
Capcom beat-em-up evangelist Seth Killian promises we shouldn't have to wait a decade for Street Fighter V to punch and kick its way into our brawler hearts, unlike Street Fighter IV.
He jokes it'll "be before 2019," unless they wait until 2020 "just to screw me and make me look like an ass." Killian won't discuss ideas in case "some other game cops" them.
Capcom has explained why only nine months after Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fans will be getting the Ultimate version, and it's down to licensing and release dates of the competition.
Marvel "is a big company" and they license a lot of their IP, which has a "huge impact on things" like release schedules. It's at retail because Japan is still "very much not a DLC market."
Capcom 2D vampire fighter Darkstalkers: The Night Warrior is on its way to the US PlayStation Network for PS3 and PSP, according to the ESRB Teen rating they served it.
The Night Warrior was the first entry of the series and retailed in 1994, where it ported to PlayStation in 1996. More fan requests could reignite Darkstalkers at Capcom.

Unfortunately it's all in Japanese, but there's Soul Calibur V gameplay galore with a huge sneak peak at guest star Ezio, visiting from Ubisoft's blockbuster Assassin's Creed series.
Namco Bandai "haven't revealed anything yet" about how Ezio Auditore of Assassin's Creed comes to be within the Soulcalibur V universe of events.
He's such a great fit for the game that Ezio should have been in a "long, long time ago!" New Edge Meter features "really healthy" for the series.
Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm won't hide they've "absolutely" thought about a Mortal Kombat crossover game, but other brawlers shy from T ratings.
We've "all dreamt" of mixing it up with Street Fighter or Tekken, says Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon. They'v had "many, many conversations" about it all.
Soul Calibur V producer Hitsuhiro Tagu has confirmed that Assassin's Creed II's Ezio Auditore will indeed be in the game. Tagu stated that "Ezio is a good fit as the franchise’s latest guest character because his historical setting is an aesthetically pleasing match with that of Soul Calibur V."
An anonymous tipster leaked an image from the beta version of Namco Bandia's fighting game Soul Calibur V, revealing Ezio Auditore of the Assassin's Creed II games as a playable character. The image allegedly came from a recent fighting tournament.
The IP crossover Street Fighter X Tekken from Capcom will be hitting our consoles in early March 2012. Rufus from SFIV has also been confirmed in the roster.
