Capcom VS SNK: Pro


STORYIn AD 2000. A special martial arts event is planned through a collaboration of the two most powerful world organizations: Garcia Financial Clique and Masters Foundation. The gala event - it is hoped! - will ease the political conflicts between the two powers. Its name was "Millennium Fight 2000". Many renowned martial artists have registered for the tournament. People around the world focus intensely on the upcoming exhibitions. The long-awaited opening ceremony is a huge success. No one notices the signs of impending chaos.

New Dan sprite! Well... "edited"... but new enough.

Capcom VS SNK: Pro is a minor enhancement of Capcom VS SNK. CVS: Pro was originally released on the Sega NAOMI GD-ROM hardware, and was later ported to the Dreamcast (in Japan) and Playstation in 2001. This update featured some small gameplay tweaks and added two new characters to the roster: Dan Hibiki & Joe Higashi. Interestingly, these two characters were the primary "comic relief" characters of each franchise at the time.

Pixelation plagued the Playstation port.... Say that 5 times.

Outside of the new characters, everything about CVS: Pro is practically the same as the original version. Worth mentioning, the PS1 version is by far the worst port of CVS: Pro (and borderline "incomplete" due to missing animations and choppier gameplay). While not a hugely significant update, Capcom VS SNK: Pro was the definitive version of the CVS experience until Capcom VS SNK 2 was released.

 Review based on PS1 version


Final Words: You can pretty much call this game Capcom VS SNK 1.2... for the two new characters. And that's all I have to say about that. Clearly, Capcom simply wasn't "done" with CVS1. Basically, CVS: Pro was sort of an in-between sequel before CVS2. I personally didn't play this version of CVS very much... I put a lot more time into the first game and CVS2 ~TFG Webmaster
