Game Details

Vampire Hunter 2 (Darkstalkers Revenge)

Vampire Hunter 2 was released August, 1997 simultaneously with Vampire Savior 2. Both games were not direct sequels but altered versions of Vampire Savior. The main difference between Vampire Savior and Vampire Hunter was the removal of Jedah Dohma, B.B.Hood, Q-Bee, and Lilith. In their place the missing Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge characters Donovan Baine, Huitzil, and Pyron, who did not appear originally in Vampire Savior, were used.

The game was never released outside of arcades in Japan but features were used in later ports of Darkstalkers 3, known as Vampire Savior in Japan. In 2005 the game was featured in the anthology, Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection.

Vampire Hunter 2 features the same character roster and soundtrack as Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge (which was known as Vampire Hunter in Japan). The game play is the same as with Night Warriors, though slightly tweaked so that the characters play similar to their appearance in Vampire Savior; it also features the double-health bar system from the aforementioned game. Winning quotes for every character were also changed to reflect the ones from the original Vampire Hunter, which featured more quotes than the English version.

Changes were made to accommodate the added characters. CPU opponents appear in different primary default color schemes (their alternate colors from the original Darkstalkers, now selectable by pressing Medium Punch), while all the background stages from Vampire Savior received new colors. Donovan Baine’s stage was added and the Pyron boss fight now takes place inside the “Fetus of God.” All characters, aside from Pyron, were given one shared ending.

There were implied plans to create an English version of the game, which would’ve gone under the title Night Warriors 2, but was dropped possibly due to time constraints. This was evident with the Night Warriors 2 logo found in the game’s graphics data.
