In Darkstalkers, the fate of the world seems to have taken a bleak and ominous turn. Slowly, but steadily, increasing numbers of supernatural, inhuman creatures have inexplicably begun to walk the Earth. Coming in numerous shapes and sizes - vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts - these beings that have brought fear to the night have come to be known by one name: The Darkstalkers.
Some Darkstalkers prey on humans, while others try to live in peace with them. Still others are too busy fighting amongst themselves to even care what humans do.
