[AC] Vampire

Super obscure Japanese arcade game from 1982/3:

For a game from freakin 1983 (possibly 1982 for Jp release) the premise and graphics of this game are so damn cool (the linked site has a magazine review from 1983). Game is unemulated and the board seems insanely rare.

I couldn't find any info on Japanese sites about this though when searching both for Vampire and Brass International (full size image of the flyer can be seen on arcadeflyers.com for more company information) Either the game is just totally forgotten, or it had a different name in Japan?

Anyone able to figure anything out?

Horrible flyer -- but expected of a western release. :)

I actually wouldn't be surprised if that was the original Japanese artwork too hahaha this is the early 80's after all.

It definitely looks hilarious but the colour composition is superb.

Why don't you give Brass a call (same address that's on Vampire trademark registration)?
