Capcom vs. SNK 2 hits North America PSN this Tuesday

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • July 12, 2013 at 1:32 p.m. PDT
Capcom vs. SNK 2 hits North America PSN this Tuesday In the latest episode of the Playstation Blogcast they revealed that Capcom vs. SNK 2 would be hitting North American PSN customers this Tuesday, July 16, 2013.

They didn't mention what the price would be, but this is the same re-release that was made available for Japanese gamers a little ways back, so it will lack net play.

Even then, this has been a highly requested title, so it'll be nice to pick it up if you have a PlayStation 3.

I got a strange feeling that Capcom & Snk got something plan. Cvs3 probably in the works for the next Gen.

#36
MaysTheCraze said on July 12, 2013 at 4:40 p.m.

I'll probably pick this up, but now I really need to get my 360 arcade stick dual modded...

#37
TheSquirrelMaster said on July 12, 2013 at 4:44 p.m.

I cant wait. Im going to check for it at midnight, and stay up for at least an hour or two to get my sausage wet haha. cvs2 greatest fighting game of all time. shame that its not online edition like third
strike since 3rd strike and cvs2 were the first online fighting games. Didnt think they would do cvs2 dirty like that but Ill take it. Hope to find some people on the fighter tracker feature on eventhubs to run some good sessions. Hype!

I guess I finally don't need my ps2 anymore

RebornOdin said on July 12, 2013 at 6:51 p.m.

Why the hell would you ever expect a 12 year old game to have online? You do realize it's not as simple as flicking a switch labeled "Online functionality" right?

The game was NEVER DESIGNED FOR ONLINE PLAY. It would've required months and months of gutting the game (Which requires multiple, dedicated people and money) and rooting around inside it in order to make even the most basic functionality of online work, especially since it's an entire generation behind.

"derp a derp no online" Yeah, what a surprise that a straight port doesn't have online, even after Capcom has repeatedly stated that it's just a straight port and would never have online capabilities.

#42
WBK_ZER0 said on July 12, 2013 at 6:58 p.m.

wow people won't get a game without online play
i mean i can see why people are mad that it isn't coming to the 360 but no online ruins the game? that's kinda sad to me. if it's under $20 (which i assume it will be) i'll get it due to the fact that my old one broke

#43
SummerUndercover said on July 12, 2013 at 7:15 p.m.

@42 Your comment is ridiculous. SF3, MVC 1&2, Darkstalkers, etc, etc, etc weren't "designed" to play online either, but guess what? Capcom was smart enough to rerelease them with online functionality. Why they'd rerelease CVS2 without the same functionality is a huge mistake on their part. You make it sound like such an impossible task, but your comment exposes what little knowledge you have regarding the process. It's not as if they had to make it HD or anything of the sort. Adding online functionality only would have benefited them in the long run. I guarantee that a lot of the sales for this game with be the result of people's ignorance, thinking the game will come with online playability. It's a shame, because it would be a fair assumption that in the year 2013, Capcom would make this standard on any fighting game they put on PSN.

Yay for input lag and frame rate issues. Thanks for giving us this bastardized version Sony.

Still one of the top 5 2Dfighters ever made even without online.

All right

Not online, move on.

#52
shaolindk said on July 13, 2013 at 4:18 a.m.

Who cares if it doesn't have online. Now I can play it on my PS3 without having to worry about the wired controller.
Best 2d fighting game ever:D

#53
spydersword said on July 13, 2013 at 5:04 a.m.

@44 You would be right if this wasn't a straight port, just like alpha 1, 2 & 3 on psn are straight ports. Adding online and/or hd takes time regardless of if you think its hard or not. Also remember that SNK owns the rights to their characters so capcom would need to make a contract with them to modify the original game just like marvel and mvc2.

#54
Strider_Hien said on July 13, 2013 at 5:22 a.m.

Capcom,why?V_V I still have my DC version.It's ok...When the Online Edition rolls around,it's gonna "TAKE MY MONEY!" time.I will support you in your other projects:Ducktales and D&D Collection.WOOT! :D

#55
Rahavic said on July 13, 2013 at 6:40 a.m.

Only thing good here is that the two companies are on good ground in 1 shape or another. After CVS2 SNK files for bankruptcy and the two companies said they'd never work together again. So this is a good sign at least in that aspect.

#56
streetfighterjoe said on July 13, 2013 at 8:12 a.m.

Only on PS3

#57
bunny said on July 13, 2013 at 9:19 a.m.

if i didn't already have a copy of the game collecting dust on the shelf i might consider this but ima go with castlevania loi & ducktales RM for my next games but if they do a sale for ps+ or something i may get it anyway great game deserves the iron galexy hd treatment imo.

#58
NumeroGaijin said on July 13, 2013 at 9:33 a.m.

No point in buying. I still have the original and yes the fact of no online makes this a definite no-go.

#59
Quebert69 said on July 13, 2013 at 11:18 a.m.

How bad is the input lag and delay? Is it really that noticeable?

keebler said on July 13, 2013 at 12:50 p.m.

@44

How does that "expose his lack of knowledge?" You obviously don't have a clue what he meant. Yeah, those other games were released with online capability because they had dedicated teams working on them for several months and a lot of money went into them. Each of those re-releases (third strike, mvc origins, darkstalkers) made fewer sales than the one released prior. Capcom is hardly chomping at the bit to throw a bunch more money at a game like cvs2.

Sure, CvS2 is heavily requested by the community, but so were darkstalkers and third strike. Capcom has to pick and choose where they lay focus. .
