Among the famous fighting games, we cannot ignore names like The King of Fighters (SNK) or Street Fighter (Capcom). They bring not only beautiful characters but also many exciting matches to experience. From there, Capcom came up with a great idea for their new game. Instead of designing new plot and characters, Capcom cooperated with SNK Playmore to the characters of the two games to compete with each other. Finally, the combination of Capcom and SNK Playmore offered an interesting game, Capcom Vs. SNK. The game was available in late 1999 and appeared on the Dreamcast platform shortly thereafter.
Compared to the two original games, this version has some new changes. Firstly, the game time is built with four separate options, and the players can customize it in the Option Mode folder. The four timelines are 300 seconds, 600 seconds, 999 seconds, and no limited time (the game only stops when one of the two characters on the playing field is defeated). With the extended game time, players can freely perform many different attack techniques or combos. The next edit is that players can customize the tempo of the game to challenge their reflexes, Normal or Turbo.
By building on two different fighting games, this game will bring many interesting characters to experience. You can mention some typical names such as Terry Bogard, Ryuji Yamazaki, Ken Masters, Kyo Kusanagi, Sakura Kasugano, Morrigan Aensland … Besides, the battle system is a team competition. Players will pick out their favorite characters or want to experience. After that, group battles (2 Vs 2) will take place, players will play against their opponent. To win a match, the player will have to defeat all the opponents. In each battle, players have to perform many different battle techniques. Each has to have its control manipulations and quick reflexes to attack the enemy. In addition, attack combos also have to be used continuously to accumulate energy. It helps players activate special attack techniques.
Capcom vs. SNK has a great graphics system, images are still unique cartoon style. Characters are beautifully constructed from appearance to movement and possess sharper details.
