SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium (Japanese: 頂上決戦最強ファイターズ SNK VSCAPCOM, Hepburn: Chōjō Kessen Saikyō Fighters SNK vs. Capcom, "Final Great Battle of the Strongest Fighters: SNK vs. Capcom") is a crossover fighting game developed by SNK for the Neo Geo Pocket Color.

Gameplay[edit]

It features a total of 26 characters from SNK and Capcom, eight of which are hidden. Play options includes 2-fighter tag teams, 3-fighter queue teams and one-on-one. After that, the player can choose a Capcom-style level gauge, an SNK-style charge gauge or a 'neutral' meter that enhances super attacks if full.

Every character also has a rival, whom they will fight at the fourth stage. The last two stages has the player fighting the tag team of Geese and Bison, then, depending what the side opposite to the player character's is and if the player's rival had been defeated beforehand, Orochi Iori or Evil Ryu. Only by reaching and clearing this final stage will the player's leading character's ending play; otherwise, a bad ending will be triggered.

In Olympic mode, one can play themed minigames such as blasting Martians FPS-style (lifted from the final boss of Metal Slug 2) or helping Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins hop pits to snatch up treasure, as well as time-attack, first strike and survival events. The player's performance in these games awards special vs. points which can be used to unlock a special attack for each character.
