All About TheDuskwalker
That's 4 new characters for BBCP, and there is rumors of 2 more for consoles. It seems Arc have learned from there mistakes with BBCS. Which was basically them rushing out a half assed sequel in a year, rehashing most the stages from CT with tweaks, and so only adding 2 character to the arcade version, then half assing in a unlockable console character that was modified sprite of a existing character (even though the final result was still a solid character) which served as the story modes final boss and also couldn't be used in most offline modes after you unlocked her, and then 3 overpriced DLC character which wasn't even usable in most the offline modes, and finally releasing the proper version we should have got the first time where the characters were actually properly integrated into the game, with a additional character and stage, earlier this year. Yeah all that didn't work out so well. Hopefully with CP they make unlockables more like Extend, and not like regular CS in which they deliberatly made unlockables so frustrating to get to try and force people to by unlock codes.
Anyway the character is Izayoi, and following Shin Noel from BBCS is Shin Tsubaki since it's her with her weapon fully awakened. Which basically means Tsubaki learned Bankai so she can counter Noel's Bankai (Mu-12), since Noel is coming to f*** her up, and Tsubaki has to somewhat keep up with Noel in all her inferiority complex lameness. I mean Noel entered Bankai in BBCS and became the true final boss, and now in the sequel Tsubaki has to rip Noel off and do the same because of her Noel jealousy (jokes on you Tsubaki, rumors are one of the console characters will be the true final boss), I don't think Noel is the problem in your life Tsubaki. Most likely Izayoi will be the arcade mode final boss too. Anyway while the character is Tsubaki, that's pretty much all they have in common. The sprite is brand new, and the moveset is completely unique. Not like Mu which was a headswap Nu with a redrawn body and additions, with them sharing some normals and drive animations (though it seems they're tweaking Nu and Mu to further seperate them in BBCP). Anyway design and moveset is a huge improvement over normal Tsubaki's Order Sol rip-off gameplay and terrible outfit.
She's a multistance character. Stance 1 is supposedly a zoner in which she gains powerups above the heat guage, and her second stance is a rushdown stance in which she uses said powerups to do her special moves in this stance.
17Oct 12Dat ass, also know as Mu-12, and Nu-13 return.
Story of Mu-12 is Noel wants to control the Azure (apparently with the help of Rachel, though could be a translation error) and gains the power to enter her Murakumo form (presumably can switch between her human Noel self and Mu-12 at will, in story, not gameplay) to save Tsubaki. Mu-12's quote in her reveal is "I will become strong." I guess this means she still has the true Azure, it was implied she lost it after Ragna defeated Mu-12 and restored Noel's mind, since they said she was no longer the eye. Mu-12 will no longer have her more emotionless personality from BBCS, she's now just Noel with a different moveset/outfit, and of course with dat ass hanging out. So not only 2 playable Noelies, but Noel's now a total boss and even more awesome, and she was already one of the most awesome things in the history of awesome. Sadly no reports on Mu gaining new moves yet, just a new astral animation, though she probably does since everyone got new moves and it would be weird not to (she already has the lowest), so people that played recent build might not have studied her or possibly they revealed her in a early state before implementing her new moves.
Nu-13 was revealed to still be alive at the end of CS, and had reformed her body through pure will. So she's back in all her creepy cute goodness. She now has 2 stances, armored and sword. Armored is obviously her CT self, and sword is obviously her in her pre-battle intro/CT portrait, she fights with her big sword instead of turning it into armor (people have been wanting to use the Murakumo's in there unarmored outfits with the cape, and without the jet legs). Rather have had Mu-12 with this ability since her unarmored outfit is nicer than Nu's, but oh well.
Also arcade intro.
DS2 = same story as DS1 so no need to include it, that and DS1 wasn't that great with. DS2 was basically what DS1 should have been, with better system mechanics, much like SF Alpha 1 to 2, except DS2 endings were the same as DS1 but expanded, which is why DS2 wasn't named DS2, since it was more of a 1.5 thing, but didn't stop them from calling the third installment 3 anyway, but they weren't numbered in Japan anyway...I'll stop now.
These should have been on PSN and XBLA years ago, but better late than never. Hopefully Capcom don't Capcom these ports and they're solid arcade perfect quality, since we never got a arcade perfect port of DS3 in the states and UK (since Capcom never brought the PS2 DS collection stateside with the arcade version of all games), and DS2 was Saturn only for consoles (not including the Japan only PS2 collection). As much as I don't support buying Capcom games, this time make a exception since DS is EXCELLENT, and has Morrigan Aensland. You don't want to make Miss Aensland sad, do you?
Too bad they'll most likely Capcom Darkstalkers 4, which is obviously in the works since they usually do these XBLA and PSN releases when a new installment is in the works. See SSFIITHD, MvC2, and JoJo (even if new JoJo game is Namco). Still DS was part of Capcom's last great fighting games, and was the inspiration for such greats as Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, hell the MvC games and Capcom's Marvel fighters gameplay was based on DS, except more dumbed down and flashy, and less good.
Still I will make a exception and buy DS4 even if it's bad. Why would I do such a dumb thing you ask? Well if Capcom ever do get there s*** together and start making good games again, well I would want DS4 to be successful so Capcom would be incouraged to make a DS5, that's actually good, when they get there crap together. Unless they go full retard and remove Miss Aensland, or make her DLC, since that's how Capcom rolls. Yeah not supporting that in hopes DS5 will be made, in that sceneraio I just say f*** it and hope for the best!
