quote: Speaking of altering, recently I finished Okamii Wii edition, and I saw some bonus content that made me realize it is altered and some towns are not used. In my dream world they bundle Okami and Okamiden HD WiiU edition, using some canceled elements to be added. But thats another daydreaming subject.
The classic porcess is to use the re-releases to help fund the proper sequel, but considering they already got people working on assests for that trailer, it sort of feels like "kidnapping" ("pay for these games again if you want to see the new one, even if we're already working on it anyway!") - then again, maybe they just want to use those re-release sales to help measure how much they'll actually invest in the new game, while marketing it as an underdog that needs indirect fan support (by buying something else) to see the light of day.
Companies have altered or dropped projects all the time so while there may be work being done on DS4 today it could just as easily be written off as a loss tomorrow. Still, I'm hoping that things will work out since I would love to see a new Vampire game. Even though DS4 has yet to be made I already know it won't be as good as VS but nothing will ever be as good as VS so that's to be expected.

These online games are outsourced. Nobody who actually work on these games is from Capcom, so they will never be allowed to add anything or change anything by the Japanese management of Capcom. And yes, that includes adding Pyron or Phobos to Savior 1.
By the way, adding Jedah&co to Hunter wouldn't look good, because of the difference of animation (Hunter 1 has a different pace and some more detailed animations than Savior 1. Animation frames have been cut out from returning characters in Savior 1).
Moreover, this studio has been merely hired to slap online to theses games, and no one is going to maintain a server for Vampire 1, Hunter 2 or Savior 2. It's already amazing they remembered Hunter 1 was actually good, or that they didn't pick Savior 2.
Now, as for the reason why they didn't pick a later, definite edition, that's everyone's guess (like the one for... DC I think, with variations of the characters through the 5 games, including tentative ones like "what would have Buletta played like if she had been in Vampire 1).
It's not like Hunter 1 or Savior 1 have amazing balance to begin with, or that they have cult following on par with 3rd Strike.
Long story short: only buy this if you want to play Hunter 1 or Savior 1 online, or buy the PS2 compilation to own the definite version of Vampire, including Dee-wackiness.
Oh, and I forget: are we getting more AMAZING artwork by some 3rd-grade american artist to replace the outdated Bengus artwork this time again? Because that would really help sell the game more, see?
