SNK And Capcom Are Interested In Bringing Back Capcom VS SNK
Capcom and SNK are fighting game juggernauts then and now, so it only made sense for both of them to team up at one point to make a crossover fighting game between the two factions. That happened with 2000’s Capcom VS SNK and 2001’s Capcom VS SNK 2, with both games being very popular in their time.
Will there be a revival for this? It’s a possibility, according to a recent Video Games Chronicle interview. SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda said that both parties are interested in creating an SNK vs Capcom revival. The collaborative cross promotional posters featuring both Capcom and SNK games sold at EVO 2022 in August reconfirmed the public’s interest.
“Definitely in the future, that’s something that I think everybody on all sides, in both parties, are interested in making a reality. Especially after we saw the reaction to the [EVO posters]… it helped us reconfirm that that is probably one of the most wanted things from the fighting game community across the entire world.
We haven’t really talked in detail with anybody at Capcom about it. It might have come up as a vague comment. However, we have a lot of experience [in crossovers] with things like Akuma and Geese in Tekken, Terry [Bogard] in Fighting EX Layer, Terry in Smash Bros., and Baiken in Samurai Showdown…
“But recently, we haven’t actually done anything with Capcom, even on character collaboration stuff. So that poster [at EVO], in our sense, was the first step towards maybe something like that happening in the future.”
