Some of the famous Capcom and SNK characters in SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium.

The SNK vs. Capcom (or alternately Capcom vs. SNK) series is a collection of fighting games by either Capcom or SNK featuring characters that appear in games created by both of these two companies.

The games in this series either contain SNK vs. Capcom or Capcom vs. SNK, the first company name (in these cases) denoting the company behind the game's development. The games developed by Capcom are part of their VS. series.

Games in this series appear for various platforms, including the Sega NAOMI (arcade), NeoGeo (arcade and home system), PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Xbox, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and Dreamcast.

History Edit

CapSNKJapanCoverArt

Kyo vs Ryu in Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000.

The supposed origin behind this series was an issue of Arcadia magazine in which there were articles covering both The King of Fighters '98 and Street Fighter Alpha 3, both of which were released at around the same time. Readers had misread the cover, which said KOF vs. SF, suggesting that there was a fighting game that would pit characters from the Street Fighter and The King of Fighters series. Because of this uproar, Capcom and SNK supposedly signed a deal that would allow them to produce only two fighting games concerning both franchises in 1999 (the Card Fighters series were not fighting games and therefore were exempt from the rule).

It is possible that SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos was made in order to fulfill the contract obligations[citation needed] that SNK made prior to the company filing bankruptcy and their eventual closing in 2000. If one company was the main developer of one game, the distributing company would gain the profits and not the company that licensed the characters for use. SNK gave the rights to use their characters to Capcom for the first Capcom vs. SNK game although SNK didn't profit from it.

There were interviews which SNK stated that it would be possible to renew their contract with Capcom to make new SNK vs. Capcom games[1] but in an another interview, both companies stated that they would not do any further collaboration with each other, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS may possibly be the last crossover game between both companies.[2] However, in an interview from January 2009, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono expressed interest in a possible third game if fans demand it.[3] In October 2012, Hideaki Itsuno hinted that the SNK vs. Capcom series (along with the Rival Schools series[citation needed]) may see a revival.[citation needed]
