Apparently, Darkstalkers 4 has secretly been in development at Capcom since last year with the producer of Street Fighter, Yoshinori Ono, supervising the project himself. This news comes from an inside source that has spoken with Venture Beat. According to the source, Darkstalkers 4 will be using a modified version of the Street Fighter X Tekken engine.
To lend credence to the believability of this rumor, the same source leaked out various, accurate, details about Resident Evil 6 before Capcom revealed it themselves. This news comes on the heals of Capcom filing a new trademark for Darkstalkers so perhaps fans of the series won’t have to wait much longer for a reveal. Could we see something at E3 2012 or even sooner?
