Publisher synopsisEdit

"No one could remember how it had come to this.. The world was utterly infested by undead and lycanthropic creatures called 'Darkstalkers.' On his way out of a bar, a young man called Jack laughs off the dire warnings of a terrified man who desperately rambled on about the threat of the darkness. That night, Jack falls prey to Morrigan's dark seduction and is found as a lifeless husk the morning. At around the same time, somewhere in Romania, Demitri was showing signs of making a comeback. He had been exiled from Makai, but his absence would not prove to be permanent."
–Udon Entertainment, Darkstalkers Graphic File
