Vampire Hunter 2 was released in September 1997 only in Japan. It was known there as the 27th video game released for the CPS2 hardware.
This game is not a actual sequel, but rather a redesigned version, using the newest Darkstalkers engine. It even includes a reworked version of “Vampire Savior 2″‘s intro, which removes all references to Jedah, Bulleta, Q-Bee and Lilith.
Capcom cheated with Vampire Hunter 2, since, chronologically, Anita would be in her teens by the time of Vampire Savior, but they removed Donovan from “Vampire Savior”‘s storyline, bringing in Bulleta, instead.
Huitzil (Phobos’ name outside of Japan) is the diminutive of ‘Huitzilopochtli’ (which means ‘Blue Hummingbird on the Left’). He was the chief god of the great Aztec city Tenochtitlan and became after his death the Aztec god of the Sun and War.
