I like this topic. If you're a Darkstalkers fan like I am or if you are bored over the weekend, this topic should be entertaining.
Street Fighter 4 producer Yoshinori Ono has expressed interest in doing a new Darkstalkers after he finishes with Super. Let's pretend that we work for Capcom and are given the task of developing a plan for a new Darkstalkers game for Xbox 360 and PS3 (sorry Wii). Let's also be realistic and assume that Capcom corporate has ordered you to use Street Fighter 4's 3D graphics engine, but everything else is up to you.
- What kind gameplay systems would you use?
- Which graphical effects would you employ?
- Would you employ any special features to make the game stand out?
- Do you have any ideas for new characters?
So turn on those creative juices and put on your game-developer hats! Everybody thinks they can be a game designer and/or is smarter than the game developer, so show us what you got!
Assuming this gets a good enough response (I'm hoping there are still lots of Darkstalkers fans out there), I'll post some of the best ideas on the main IPW site later next week.
