Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 (カプコン バーサス エス・エヌ・ケイ ミレニアムファイト 2000 Kapukon Bāsasu Esu-Enu-Kei Mireniamu Faito Nisen?) is a crossover fighting game published by Capcom and released for the Sega NAOMI GD-ROM hardware and the Dreamcast in 2000. It is the second game in the SNK vs. Capcom series, a crossover video game series that features characters from Capcom and SNK games.

An update titled Capcom vs. SNK Pro was released on the Sega NAOMI GD-ROM hardware and the Dreamcast in 2001, and on the PlayStation in 2002. New additions included two extra playable characters in the form of Joe Higashi (from Fatal Fury) and Dan Hibiki (from Street Fighter), both of whom had previously made a cameo appearance in the original version’s ending, as well as new moves for existing characters and new modes of play.

Story[]

"In 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 will ease the political conflicts between the two powers. Its name is "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..."

Gameplay[]

The game uses a "ratio" system, where the "ratio" is a rating of a character's overall strength, ranging from 1 to 4. Teams of up to four can be assembled, but their combined ratios must equal and go no higher than 4. The gameplay uses the SNK-style four-button format. The player can also choose their "groove", or attack meter. The SNK Groove is based on the Extra mode that was used from The King of Fighters '94 to The King of Fighters '98, while the Capcom Groove is based on the gameplay system from the Street Fighter Alpha series.

Reception[]

Overall, the game was well received by critics and players. However, there was some criticism directed to the game’s roster, which is basically made up of characters from the Street Fighter and The King of Fighters series (with Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers, Nakoruru from Samurai Shodown which had already appeared in the Game Boy version of The King of Fighters '95 and Raiden from Fatal Fury being the only exceptions, but in the future Raiden also appeared in The King of Fighters series). Since both companies have an extent number of fighting games franchises, this ought to allow for more variety of characters and gameplay.

Another limitation of the game is the ratio system, which is predetermined for each character, thus reducing the possibilities of team formations. The home versions have a Pair Match mode where the player can choose any two characters since, in this mode, they are all rated 2.

Both problems were solved with its successor, Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001.

Trivia[]

  • The song played in Ryu's stage (named "Ayutthaya Iseki") and the options menu includes a sample from a Brazilian beer commercial containing the spoken line "Kaiser, uma grande cerveja, a cerveja dos momentos felizes", meaning "Kaiser, a great beer, the beer of the happy moments", which was the beer's catchphrase at the time.[1][2]
