Ono may or may not have confirmed a new Darkstalkers at Comic Con
Capcom producer (and all round badass) Yoshinori Ono may not be in the best of health as of late but being the magnificent man that he is, he made his annual Comic Con appearance during the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Panel in full Blanka garb. *Sigh* I wish I was there for that.
During his appearance, Ono said he would not ask the fans in attendance (as he did in previous years) to hold up their hands with their hard earned money proudly clenched, in effort to make Capcom aware that they are willing throw that money down for a new Darkstalkers.
Ono said he wasn’t going to ask them to it this year because they didn’t have to and that the reason why was “not necessarily bad news!" However, he couldn’t go into any further details for fear of getting in “trouble.”
Hmmm. Could this be a confirmation of the new 2.5D Darkstalkers game that was rumored to be in the works since March? Hmmm … I wonder. I wonder.
While Mr. Ono is someone who clearly likes to have fun and make a few jokes while on the job (so much so that he’s become one of the most beloved figures in the industry), he’s not one to deceive his audience. I believe that he very well could be working on a Darkstalkers revival. Or at the very least is on the verge of getting Capcom’s approval.
Or at least I hope so.
