Midnight Kiss - Morrigan's (Darkstalkers 3) Victory Theme: A Emcee ReWork & Extended ver.
by A Emcee Muzik
Weekend Remix: A Soulful Kiss
Song: Midnight Kiss (Morrigan’s Victory Theme)
By: A Emcee Muzik
Based On: Morrigan’s Victory Theme From Darkstalkers 3
Original Composer: Takayuki Iwai
Hello monsters and ghouls. Halloween may be over, but the wait for Darkstalkers Resurrection, and maybe an entirely new game in the series is still going. So for this week, I decided to pull a remix related to everyone’s favorite succubus.
The original theme was only a 20-second house disco loop. It’s easier to imagine it as an old school arcade song with the musical genetics of Madonna’s model-strutting hit song, Vogue. But A Emcee Muzik really gave this song wings to fly, by evolving this theme to an actual concept song. Doing so would require a lot of original songwriting, and luckily Emcee doesn’t falter with that requirement.
Morrigan simply floats on a laid-back groove that could be found in Sunday morning church, filled with soulful claps and gospel drums. The keys melt with the beat, but we get a bit of a nocturne visit thanks to Emcee’s dazzling jazzy organ solo.
In short, there’s enough going on to keep the ears perking and heads nodding. It’s simply a soulful song, which should keep a succubus like Morrigan full, at least until the next dark night.
If you’d like to hear more from Emcee, check out his SoundCloud or YouTube pages.
Until next weekend….GO Party!
“Darkstalkers Resurrection” HD Trailer
Capcom announced the return of Darkstalkers during the New York Comic Con. The fighting game franchise is returning to gamers thanks to HD ports of two its significant titles: Night Warriors (Vampire Hunter) and Darkstalkers 3 (Vampire Savior). There will be 18 characters, several HD filters, GGPO netcode that’ll be better than Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins, arcade cabinet modes, spectator chat, eight-person lobbies, challenger mode and YouTube replay sharing. There will also be unlockable contents.
The game set will release on PSN and XBLA in early 2013 for $14.99.

During the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono told fans that if they wanted to see more of Darkstalkers, then they would have to wave their cash in the air for Ono to take pictures and show Capcom.
It appears that fans can now put their money back in their wallets and purses. Ono said that there’s no need for them to wave their cash around at this year’s Comic-Con, making some wonder if that means Darkstalkers is rising again.
Capcom already filed to renew the Darkstalkers trademark in the European Union earlier this year. I wonder if this means a new game in the franchise, or another HD port like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure? There were talks of Darkstalkers 3 hitting PSN earlier this year.

According to Eurogamer and the European Union trademarks office, Capcom has registered a new Darkstalkers trademark on 14th Feb 2012. The last time Capcom registered a new Darkstalkers trademark back in 2004, they released Darkstalkers Chronicle for the PSP, whichstrictly speaking isn’t a new game, but a port with extra features.
Could it be that after over 100,000 requests from fans for a new Darkstalkers game, Capcom is finally ready to listen to the fans? Or maybe another port to a new platform just to milk more money out of fans?
For the past few years, Capcom has gone through a bit of a fighting game revival, much to wide smiles and bruised arcade sticks/D-Pads of gamers world-round.
And the train keeps rolling, as the company preps for the release of Super Street Fighter IV for the Nintendo DS (March 27, 2011) and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (February 15, 2011).
Still, ever since the release of Street Fighter IV, many have wondered if Capcom’s “darker” fighting game series, Darkstalkers, would see some new games added to its catalog. While there have been ports and remakes, the new series hasn’t had a completely new game since 1997’s Vampire Savior.
Street Fighter Producer, Yoshinori Ono, hasn’t given up on the idea of a new Darkstalkers game, but recently told IGN that a revival in the series is going to still require more noise from the fans:
“A new Darkstalkers… I know people want it,” Ono told us. “At Comic-Con last year I brought it up at the panel discussion and virtually [everyone in the] entire auditorium raised their hands when asked if they were interested. I took that information back to the company. I’ve been lobbying for it ever since. They haven’t warmed to the idea just yet, but I haven’t given up. I’ll continue to push for it. People still do ask for it.”
“I’m basically running into the same sort of hurdles I ran into with Street Fighter IV, so if I can show there’s enough interest, maybe something will happen.”
Not exactly the answer most would want to hear, but it does give some hope right?
