‘Night Warriors: Darkstalker’s Revenge’ Anime Gets Second Life

‘Night Warriors: Darkstalker’s Revenge’ Anime Gets Second Life Discotek Media has delved into the old Viz Media catalog once again and this time has surfaced with Night Warriors: Darkstalker’s Revenge, a four episode OVA series that was released back in 1996. The company will be bringing it out in the future in bilingual form, presumably DVD only. The series, based on the CAPCOM game of the same name, was directed by Masashi Ikeda and animated by Madhouse.

Plot concept: The world is a dark, brooding place populated by humans, but ruled in reality by powerful beings known as the Darkstalkers, and there is constant conflict between them as they try to determine who is the most powerful of them all. Zombies, vampires, werewolves – all of them compete in contests of strength and sheer will to attain their own personal goals.

All of this becomes moot when a race of Aztec robots called the Huitzil decide that humanity isn’t worth saving, and start waging war on the world, while in the sky, a solar god from outer space plots the conquest of Earth. And the Darkstalkers must become unwilling allies in order to save the world.
