Capcom to release updated port of Darkstalkers?

Capcom have registered a European trademark for Darkstalkers, fueling rumors of a console re-release, Joystiq reports.

The 2D arcade fighter has been the topic of discussion within Capcom recently, with Street Fighter x Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono having asked fans many times to “create the buzz” for new Darkstalkers titles. With fans providing positive feedback to the idea, it appears that Capcom have taken the hint.

An updated port of Darkstalkers would follow similar moves by Capcom, having previously released ports of fighters such as Marvel vs. Capcom 2 onto several consoles.

Capcom have so far refused to confirm the news, simply replying to Joystiq’s enquiry with “We have not made any announcements.”
