SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash 2
  

ABOUTSNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash 2 is the sequel to the first highly addictive card battle game released exclusively for the Neo Geo Pocket Color in 1999, Card Fighters Clash. In addition to the 240 Character cards and 60 Action cards from the first game, 124 brand new cards (with cool new artwork by various SNK artists) have been added to the sequel. Among these are 40 "Reaction" cards which are similar to Action cards but can be used to counter the opponent's attack. Unlike the first game, Card Fighters Clash 2 was released only in Japan.

 

New art by Falcoon, Tonko, and others!

 

Card Fighters Clash 2
features a more straightforward single-player mode, as opposed to the RPG-like gameplay experience of the first Card Fighters title.
Instead of being released as two versions like the previous game, Card Fighters Clash 2 was released as a single version that allows the player to decide to either start with an SNK deck or a Capcom deck at the beginning of the game. Like the original game, CFC2 features characters from a wide variety of Capcom and SNK titles, including: Street Fighter, KOF, Darkstalkers, Samurai Shodown, Resident Evil, and more obscure SNK fighting games like Savage Reign.


The four main heroes from the first game return in Card Fighters Clash 2. These characters are: Cap, Shin, Comet, and Kei. Card Fighters Clash 2 features a far greater number of unique characters / card battlers than were in the prequel. Check out Page 4 of TFG's Character Art Gallery to see official illustrations of these unique characters.

 

Dreamcast connectivity!

 

Unfortunately, Card Fighters Clash 2 was never released outside of Japan. In 2008, a fan-made English translation of Card Fighters' Clash 2 was created in the form of a patch and is currently the only way to play the game in English. In January 2022, SNK released the original Card Fighters Clash on Nintendo Switch. So hopefully, SNK comes around and releases a modern port of the sequel as well.


FUN FACT: SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash 2 features connectivity with the Japanese Sega Dreamcast version of Capcom Vs. SNK 2 to unlock various content and cards in the game.

BOTTOM LINE

   

  

 

Final Words: As a huge fan of the first Card Fighters Clash (such a good game), it's pretty sad that I've only had the chance to play the Japanese version of CFC2 on a crappy emulator, and I can't read Japanese that well... so I haven't been able to really "play" this sequel - like many other English fans. I speak only as a fan of card games. CFC1 really is that much fun as a card game, alone. The whole fighting game theme is nice, too.

Here's hoping SNK will eventually release an official English version of CFC2. Is that so much to ask? I'm sure a proper translated version exists somewhere on the internet, but I'd prefer to have the full and original SNK experience of CFC2... with online mode, perhaps. On that note, what NEOGEO Pocket Color fans really deserve is a Card Fighters Clash 1 + 2 re-release - with online. Release it on Nintendo Switch or something, guys. Hey, c'mon cmon SNK!
