Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge is the sequel to the moderately successful Darkstalkers, Capcom's alternative fighting game featuring parodies of well-known movie monsters. Known as Vampire Hunter in Japan, Night Warriors saw an extremely small release in the arcades of the United States, and has been brought home exclusively to the Sega Saturn.
Night Warriors brings back all of the characters found in the original Darkstalkers, including the vampire Dimitri, the succubus Morrigan, cat-girl Felicia, along with nine others, including the bosses, who are now playable. Along with the returning cast are two new faces to the Darkstalkers series; Donovan, the vampire hunter who is hot on Dimitri's trail, and Lei-Lei, a Chinese ghost with a number of tricks literally up her sleeve.
Along with the added characters, some significant changes have been made to the original Darkstalkers engine in order to bring the game more up to date with it's Street Fighter Alpha contemporaries. Night Warriors allows players to power up and retain several levels with their special gauge. One level of the gauge can activate a more powerful version of each character's special move. In addition, characters can activate a state in which they can chain together highly damaging combos. Also, with enough levels of the gauge filled up, players can use devastating super attacks unique to every character. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
