Ryu vs. Kyo Kusanagi, Maki vs. Mai, and Sakura vs. Athena Asamiya. On Tuesday, you can set up all of these fights when Capcom re-releases Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium as a PlayStation 2 classic.
Capcom vs. SNK 2 brought Maki from Final Fight 2 out of obscurity and had six play styles styles. Each of the game’s Groove are based on a different fighting game. The K Groove is essentially Samurai Shodown and gives characters a rage meter and a run move (which is different from the dash in the Street Fighter grooves). If you want to parry you can pick the P Groove which is based on Street Fighter III and the A Groove has a Custom Combo system from Street Fighter Alpha 3.
Since this is a PS2 Classic, Capcom vs. SNK 2 won’t have online play, but at least we’re finally getting the game. Japan has had Capcom vs. SNK 2 since September of last year.
