To use modified Street Fighter X Tekken engine.

Darkstalkers 4 is in the works, if a VentureBeat source is to be believed.

The same source allegedly told the site details about last month’s Resident Evil 6 reveal hours before the official announcement.

According to the rumor, the game has been in development since late last year, when principal development on Street Fighter X Tekken wrapped up, with series producer Yoshinori Ono at its lead. It is said to use a modified version of the Street Fighter X Tekken engine.

In July last year, Ono teased a revival of the series at the San Diego Comic-Con, with the text “Darkstalkers are not dead” appearing on-screen during his PowerPoint presentation.

    PLease stop using that ugly style from sf4 and use something new that looks amazing for once! Ill almost accept MVC3 style, but please no more sf4 models! They’re ugly!!

      @Pirate King: I agree. Something more Japanese. The western influenced look is somewhat ugly if not flat out.

    While it is nice DS might get another entry, Capcom is oversaturating the market with fighting games and it will lead to the next fighting game market crash.

    Capcom kinda lost all sense of rationality and direction, how many fighting games and revisions they made in this generation alone?

      @Kage: SSFIV: Arcade Edition sold well and it was the third update of a released game. Of course there is room for a new entry in an old series. There wont be any ridiculous fighting game crash. Even during the the worst years for the genre, Tekken and Virtua Fighter was doing extremely well. Capcom just never released anything. The market for arcades is what got severely damaged but that market is now grown to competing on consoles and there is constant tournaments. The next Darkstalkers could likely be a tournament title.
