Umehara vs. Sako in Vampire Resurrection PV2

As promised, the second part of Vampire Resurrection promotional video is posted today (first part here).

Vampire/Darkstalkers Resurrection will be released on March 14.

- Capcom producer Ayano and Nuki talk about screen styles that you can choose in the game: Over-the-Shoulder, Retro, Arcade Cabinet, Wide.
- Although it says in the video that Sako is Vampire Savior national No.1, Sako had never won any major individual tournament. His best was top 4 in Tougeki 2004 (according to Famitsu). (He won pre-Tougeki 2004 5 on 5 tournament which is a team tournament.)
- On the other hand, Nuki was actually Vampire Savior national No.2 at Gamest Cup (where he lost to Umehara in the final). (When Gamest Magazine stopped, many staff went with Arcadia Magazine that later organized Tougeki.)
- Umehara and Sako has an online match. (This's to test online play.)
- This's more like a PR match rather than a serious one since both players changed characters freely.
- (Impression after the match) Umehara said "I didn't feel any lag. Because the game is speedy, no lag is good."
- Famitsu has full page ads of this promotion.
