Summary

It’s time to return to the Neo Geo Colour Pocket and man what a game we get this time around. SNK vs Capcom is not only an iconic series but the work they have done to keep the game solid and fun with so little is just incredible. The graphics are Cutesy chubby pixel graphics, the music is beautiful and the controls are just staggering, I mean you can do all the moves and combos with just two buttons! Talking of which the touchscreen revolution continues with you being able to play the game using just the touchscreen or with buttons. The local multiplayer split the screen in half and is perfect for on-the-go fighting. OK so it does a lot of what the other SNK switch games do but the actual game itself is just fucking incredible, they fit so much in and it all works and is one of my most played games of the last few months. You owe it to yourself to grab this piece of history, even if you are not a fighting fan you can mash it and look like a pro!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
