A new Neo-Geo Pocket classic arrives

For nearly two years, SNK has been gradually republishing the catalog of its Neo-Geo Pocket Color on the Nintendo Switch eShop. After releasing a boxed version of the first Switch ports of these titles last summer, the Japanese publisher is starting 2022 by offering a new title on Nintendo’s virtual store.

Another game from the Neo-Geo Pocket Color catalog has just arrived on the Nintendo Switch eShop. This title is SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash originally released in 1999. As the title of the game suggests, this is about card battles.

On Switch, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash brings together the SNK and Capcom versions of the original Neo-Geo Pocket Color game. At the time, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash worked like a Pok√©mon RPG. Cards were specific to one or the other of the two versions.

And it was possible to face and exchange cards with another owner of Neo-Geo Pocket Color. However, this Switch version does not allow you to connect two consoles and play together.

Two games in one

To somewhat compensate for this lack, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash on Switch allows a player to trade between the SNK and Capcom versions present in this port. As well as playing against his ghost.

Each user of this Switch port can switch from the Capcom version to the SNK version at their leisure. Same observation for the Japanese versions and “international.” Each version has its own backups, however.

Switch saves money for Neo-Geo Pocket fans

In total, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash allows you to virtually collect 300 cards. This includes cards “character“as well as maps”action.” Obviously, the characters in question here are from famous SNK and Capcom licenses.

Note for nostalgics, retrogamers, the curious and collectors that getting this Switch version in English is much more reasonable than buying the original American version of SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash. In addition to being relatively rare, the latter is now extremely expensive.

It will indeed cost several hundred euros to obtain a complete Neo-Geo Pocket Color copy. Knowing that SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighter’s Clash costs only 7.99 euros on Switch, the compromise can be interesting.
