Capcom vs SNK 2

When Christian Svensson was asked about Capcom vs SNK 2, he revealed some exciting news: the game is coming to the PlayStation Network via PS2 classics in April. Granted, this isn’t as nice as getting an HD remaster, but I’ll take it. Though something to note about Svensson’s remarks is that it’s release date is ultimately up to Sony, as he would think that it would be up already.

So, there you have it. I’ve never played this game, so I’ll definitely be downloading it when I get the chance. Any of you excited for the game?


About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    I only wish it had online incorporated into it. CvS2 is my favorite fighter of all time so I’ll be snatching this like no tomorrow and playing day and night. Ken, Rock/Benimaru, and Kyo all the way!

  • If it’s a PS2 classic then I don’t want it, it looks perfectly better and plays better in my GCN.

    • Randy_Thompson

      I just with the GCN had a better D-pad. I can’t do fighters with an analogue stick :S

    • Kamille

      that’s like the worst version of the game. lol

    • The Gamecube version is total garbage. It’s not arcade perfect like the PS2 version and it has that dumn EO add on.

  • Mizu D

    Quick lazy port with no online? Compare to other recent Capcom fighting games port, this is GREATLY disappointing!

    To make it worse, this is only for PSN, so Xbox Live owner won’t get it and don’t expect one for the Wii U lol (yeah there is the Gamecube EZ operation mode too)

    So yeah add it alongside other classic like Alpha 3 and Capcom Fighting Evolution or Jam (also on Xbox) for PSN only.

    • John Gallacher

      its not a port, its a ps2 classic

    • JoeHurricane

      Which makes it a port of the PS2 version.

      I heard it’s fine but not NEARLY as arcade perfect as the DreamCast version (speed issues here and there I believe)

    • John Gallacher

      no it doesnt, a ps2 classic is a game that is run on a emulator, a port is something that was made to run on the hardware of the console,

    • JoeHurricane

      I kind of get it that it’s more of a direct emulation, but that just further proves my point.

      i.e. it’s the PS2 version, not the arcade version (or just-as-good DreamCast version)

    • Both Dreamcast and PS2 were pretty much arcade perfect. The PS2 version had a little bit of glitches, but nothing the Dreamcast didn’t have! Keep in mind that they both have the same glitches.

  • Kamille

    if doesn’t has online play then what is the point? I already have the game on PS2 anyway.

    • Joe Hickingbottom

      I have both verions Japanese and english. svc and cvs
      the japanese versions have online

  • JoeHurricane

    I don’t wanna get it. Rather than releasing it as a PS2 classic, why not release it on regular PSN (as well as Xbox Live maybe) and other possible platforms? Give it GGPO netcode support, rebalance the characters so no one uses Sakura, Blanka, and Sagat all the time, and I’m all golden!

    btw my mains are Sagat (yeah I’m such a hypocrite, shoot me), Iori, and Ken. They had this at the arcade, ready to play at last year’s Anime Weekend Atlanta and I had a blast with everyone! Ah, the memories..

  • Joe Hickingbottom

    If xbox360 gets the online version, I will go out and buy an xbox, just to play. I know tons of people that will do the same. this is how much we want online play for this game. sony could charge more for online play. we would gladly pay for it.

  • Im still waiting…
