Version Differences

Capcom Fighting Collection made several changes to the original 5 Darkstalkers games. While most consist of issue and bug fixes, there are some direct adjustments to the game's contents.

Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors

  • Huitzil: Fixed a bug where Huitzil's Circuit Scrapper move would not trigger a sound effect when the opponent hits the ground after a successful hit.
  • Fixed a bug where the first two digits of the high score would disappear.

Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge

  • Demitri: Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes crash when Demitri was hit by a throw move.
  • Fixed an issue where combos of 100 or more hits would cause text corruption.
  • Fixed a bug where the first two digits of the high score would disappear.

Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire

  • B.B. Hood: Fixed a bug where, in rare cases, a Guard Cancel would end in an incorrect position.
  • Morrigan: Fixed an issue where, in rare cases, Morrigan's Normal Throw would crash the game.
  • Anakaris: Fixed a bug where trying to perform Pharaoh Decoration would sometimes perform Pharaoh Salvation instead.
  • Anakaris: Fixed the position for grabbing an opponent with Mummy Drop.
  • Anakaris: Fixed a bug where it would become impossible to progress after performing certain inputs during the victory pose.
  • Bishamon: Fixed an issue with the animation of Karame Dama.
  • Lilith: Fixed the position with Lilith's Dark Force clone, which would sometimes become incorrect after Lilith performs a high jump.
  • Fixed an issue where combos of 100 or more hits would cause text corruption.

Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers' Revenge

  • All characters now have a single ending (secret endings have been removed).

Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers' Revenge

  • Fixed a bug where a match between the characters Shadow (while possessing Anakaris) and Felicia would not start correctly.
  • All characters now have a single ending (secret endings have been removed).

Trivia

  • This game marks the first release of Vampire Hunter 2 and Vampire Savior 2 outside of Japan. However, it will not have its English translation as seen in previous console releases such as Darkstalkers 3, due to being a direct port from the arcade build.
    • Due to these two games being the only ones that lack an English version, highlighting either of them would switch the version for the other eight games to the Japanese version.
  • This is the first time that the entire Darkstalkers arcade game library has officially released for the PC.
  • Coincidentally Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire, Hyper Street Fighter II: The Anniversary Edition, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, and Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix would later also be included as part of Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium that would be released a month later after this game on July 22, 2022.
