A minor update of the previous game in the series, Vampire Savior 2 and Vampire Hunter 2 made some adjustments to the game system and brought back the 3 previously dropped characters. But in doing so it went over the CPS2 arcade system's storage capacity, necessitating a split into two separate games. The two games are identical aside from which characters are missing, and some presentation differences (music and winquotes).
Both Vampire Savior 2 and Vampire Hunter 2 were part of Capcom Fighting Collection, making their debut outside Japan. Whether they would also be presented in English remains unknown; however, both games' previous PS1 ports as part of Darkstalkers 3 were translated properly.
Alternate Character Select Icons
Contained in the graphics data are what appear to be icons and cursors for an alternate character select screen. These were later used in the Chaos Tower mode of Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower.
Unused Huitzil Normal Attack Frames
Huitzil Alternate Genocide Vulcan Recovery
Huitzil has 3 unused frames of animation that form a recovery motion from his Genocide Vulcan special. These go unused, and the game simply plays the move's startup frames in reverse as a recovery motion instead.

Vampire Hunter 2 contains a few unique unused voice clips:
Demitri Joke Takes
Demitri: "Genmai rice! (Brown rice!)"
Demitri: "San bai gaeshi! (Triple payback!)"
Two voice clips of Demitri's voice actor performing famous Japanese mishearings of his "Get my rage!" voice clip.
Donovan Voice Clips
Donovan: "Tsuranuke! (Run through!)"
Donovan: "Moetsukero! (Burn!)"
Donovan: "Itetsuke! (Freeze!)"
Three unused voice clips for Donovan, presumably intended for Kill Shred, Efreet Sword, and Blizzard Sword respectively. They are stored at a higher bitrate than most other voice clips, implying they are a left over from quite early in development.
The following French language dialogue is actually used as part of the intro sequence, but at such a low volume that it is very hard to make out over the music.
"L'ennemi. (The enemy.)"
"D'où venais-tu? (Where did you come from?)"
"Notre peuple est ennemi du tien. (Our people is enemy of yours.)"
Hunter 2 Lilith
The code for all 18 characters exists within both games, and the supposedly missing characters of each game are more or less playable, albeit with no graphics or voice clips. However, Lilith's graphics are intact in Vampire Hunter 2, making her perfectly playable aside from having no voice. Her voice clips actually do exist in the raw PCM data, but they have no instruments defined and are thus inaccessible.
