I've thought about getting back into the Darkstalkers games for a while. I remember it as very hard, and I did quickly run into trouble against the weird mummy-dude Anakaris.
completed the game with Demitri on Normal (4/8) difficulty (MAME).
'I am the true lord of the night! A toast to my eternal rule! The moon will be my scepter, and the stars are but jewels in my crown!' And then Demitri chills out with two blond ladies.
