Introduction

Night Warriors - Darkstalkers' Revenge (a.k.a. Vampire Hunter in Japan) is the second installment of the Darkstalkers series.
Released in 1995 for the arcade and later gaining a home release on the Sega Saturn in 1996. Other editions include the Japanese only release of Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection for the PS2 and the digital release of Darkstalkers: Resurrection for XBL and PSN (disc copy available only on PS3 in Japan).

For those unfamiliar with the original Darkstalkers title, Night Warriors changed alot. The original Darkstalkers had a s super system more akin to early KOF games or the S-Groove from the CVS2. Once the super gauge was full it would start to deplete and you had a limited time to execute a ES or EX move. In addition, while your super gauge was depleting inputting a special move would result in a ES move. You could not stock levels of super gauge and your gauge would reset at the beginning of each round.

Chain combos also worked differently in that you could not alternate between positions and punches and kicks. It was very straight forward (Ex. Standing LP, MP, HP) and you could cancel chain combos into specials, providing the normal your cancelling is cancellable on its own.

Huitzil (Phobos) and Pyron were unplayable boss characters until Night Warriors. In addition, Night Warriors added Donovan and Hsien-Ko (Lei Lei).

The overall game speed was slower, there were no pursuit attacks and the presentation including character artwork, music and backgrounds were different.
