The Daily Hotness: R.I.P. Darkstalkers


Check out everything Destructoid did today

Well, it looks like a new Darkstalkers title is definitely not happening anytime soon, with Capcom citing poor sales of DarkstalkersResurrectionas the core reason. It wasn’t the word we wanted, but at least we got some sort of confirmation instead of waiting in the dark. If anything, I feel more convinced than ever to finally pick up Resurrection myself… I see what they’re doing here.

In less depressing news, Nidhogg is finally releasing this year (finally!), Dead Rising 3 is reportedly still a Dead Rising game as we know it, Spelunky will get daily challenges exclusively on the Steam version, and so much more happened on 7/22/2013.
