Capcom and SNK ruled the 90's 2D fighting games landscape with the popularity of franchises like Street Fighter, Fatal Fury, King of Fighters and the various Marvel games, so crossover projects between the developers were a dream or fantasy that actually came true.

Multiple crossover games were developed by both Capcom and SNK with Capcom vs. SNK 2 continuing to be a staple of the fighting game community 17-years after its initial release while SNK vs. Capcom:SVC Chaos is a generally forgotten piece of history from the early 00's.

VCDECIDE's YouTube channel is based largely around comparing game versions between arcade and console versions of games, but recently made a video comparing the CvS and SvC character sprites in motion side-by-side which is pretty neat.

For those that don't know, the CvS games were developed by Capcom and feature Street Fighter models based on the Street Fighter 3 and Alpha games combined with wholly original sprites of SNK characters while SvC was developed by SNK (Playmore) and featured models based on their titles plus new Street Fighter models that appear to be based around their SF2 designs.

As to which version of the characters looks better is entirely subjective, but in general Capcom's sprites appear to have some cleaner art and brighter colors while SNK's have more shading and additional frames of animation.

You can check out a sample of the comparisons in the gallery below and VCDECIDE's full video after the jump, and be sure to tell us which you prefer in the comments section.
