Vampire Savior: System Guide / FAQ

OK, I’m done. This is the longest I’ve ever labored on a guide in my 12+ years of writing FAQs. It all started about a month ago when I began researching and testing out my old games to see what precisely the difference between Vampire Savior, Vampire Savior 2 and Vampire Hunter 2 was. I was updating SFGalleries to include the Vampire/Darkstalkers games and realized I was a little confused. In looking through guides and FAQs, I could not find a very clear explanation about specifically what the difference was! Adding to the confusion was the unique history of all the game’s ports. As you’ll read (if you have interest), the release history goes as follows (Japanese releases unless underlined)

  • Vampire Savior (Arcade)
  • Vampire Hunter 2 (Arcade)
  • Vampire Savior 2 (Arcade)
  • Vampire Savior (Saturn)
  • Vampire Savior: EX Edition (PS1)
  • Darkstalkers 3 (PS1)
  • Vampire Chronicle: For Matching Service (DC)
  • Vampire Chronicle: The Chaos Tower (PSP)
  • Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower (PSP)
  • Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection (PS2)
  • Vampire Resurrection (PS3/X360)
  • Darkstalkers Resurrection (PS3/X360)

Now, the last two aren’t out yet, but I fully intend to cover them when they arrive in March. Until then, enjoy the vast, sprawling Systems Guide. It should answer any question that exists in regards to that the differences are and which system port is the best. It was a fun guide to write and, as I mention in there, the worst part was having to wait to finish/publish it. Enjoy!!!
