Some of the most iconic fighting game art ever

Last week, we posted VCDECIDE's previous video in which they compared the sprite works side-by-side between Capcom and SNK for their previous crossover games, and now they're back with another related video.

This new video centers around the artwork and characater portraits that were featured in the Capcom vs. SNK titles with artists from both sides taking cracks at the other company's most recognizable fighters.

The famous Toshiaki "Shinkiro" Mori did his first work on Capcom characters for these titles before he eventually left SNK to join the Street Fighter developer where he still currently resides. His artwork from the CvS games is still some of the most well known and recognizable because of his more realistic takes on the characters.

Kinu Nishimura and Daigo Ikeno from Capcom on the other hand were able to give SNK characters a more stylized and slightly darker animated look from their original designs.

Both sets of work and all of the artists are iconic and legendary in their own rights, but it's still cool to see the different takes on the characters side-by-side.

You can check out a selection of the artwork comparisons in the gallery below and the full video from VCDECIDE after the jump.
