New featuresEdit

The game is an upgraded version of the original Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors which introduces several gameplay changes to the game. The game introduced two new playable characters, Donovan Baine and Hsien-Ko, who are out to hunt the other Darkstalkers in the game (hence the Japanese title, Vampire Hunter). The two bosses from the first game, Huitzil and Pyron, are now playable characters as well. The main change in Night Warriors is the ability for the player to stock up on their special bars, allowing them to store more than one special bar and preserve them through the entire match. Two types of Super Moves are featured in the game: ES Specials, which requires a portion of the Special bar, and EX Specials, which require a complete Special bar to perform. Player can choose between a "Normal" gameplay style or one that offers Auto-Blocking. The returning characters have redesigned stages, which includes remixed music or entirely different music altogether. Interestingly, the characters now use their alternate color schemes from the previous game as their default scheme.

A version for the Sega Saturn was released in 1996. It features an "Appendix Mode" that allows players to customize the backgrounds, the opponents' colors and background music between the regular ones and the ones used in the original Darkstalkers. Worth noting is that the Classic background colors aren't very faithful to the Darkstalkers originals. For example, Demitri's stage completely lacks the red background elements, and Sasquatch's stage has a completely different hue for the sky.

This game was later ported to the Playstation 2 in the Japanese only game, Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection, with an unlockable arranged version. In 2013, Iron Galaxy released the game coupled with the aracade version of Darkstalkers 3. The game selection was titled Darkstalkers Resurrection outside of Japan.
