The series was based on Capcom's video game Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge.
In a world different from our own, the old folk lore of vampires, werewolves and other terrifying creatures are a reality. In this world, humans are the natural enemies of these creatures, known as the Darkstalkers.
The staff for Night Warriors, which was composed of many members responsible for Gundam Wing (1995), were chosen by suggestions from Shukō Murase, the character designer for the anime as well as Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. Animation for the series was done by Madhouse with Masahi Ikeda directing. Character design was watched over by Shukō Murase and production by Takafumi Hoshikawa while music for the four volumes was composed by Ko Otani with the ending theme by Eikichi Yazawa, titled "The Trouble Man".
