Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, known as Vampire Hunter: Darkstalkers' Revenge (ヴァンパイア ハンター) in Japan, is the second game in the Darkstalkers versus fighting franchise by Capcom. It was followed by Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire.

Though uncredited in-game, music porting for the Saturn version was handled to some extent by Sega's own Teruhiko Nakagawa with Tatsuya Kouzaki handling miscellaneous data porting.

Versions

The Saturn version of Night Warriors is a close match to its arcade counterpart, but uses slightly fewer frames of animation during normal play. The full set of graphics do exist on the disc, however, and will be utilised if a hidden "animation mode" is set to "full". The catch is that the missing frames will only be rendered if the player and opponent are using the same character.

Loading screens are also introduced on the Saturn due to its use of disc-based media and the game is more susceptible to slowdown in busy scenes.

Due to the differences in screen resolution between the two systems (384x224 in the arcades versus 352x224 on the Saturn), all of the Saturn's graphics are stretched slightly in the horizontal axis, and borders are added at the top and bottom. Perhaps the biggest side effect of this change is the titles and menus, where the logo doesn't quite fit on screen.
