Darkstalkers Entombed For Now, but Was It Really All About the Sales Figures?

J.

I don’t really think so."

The game is old as dirt and doesn't really have the longevity that 3rd Strike or Capcom vs Marvel 2 had.
Did Capcom really expect this game to sell gangbusters?

If they made a new Darkstalkers and made just as good as any other of their fighters the sales would have came.
