Capcom Vs Series Thread

Postby LegendZilla » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:37 pm

Hello people, LegendZilla here yet again with another thread.

Right now I want to talk about what jsut might be my all-time favorite Fighting game franchise, the Capcom Vs series that began with X-men Vs Street Fighter back in 1996, eventually spawning the likes of Marvel Vs Capcom, SNK Vs Capcom, Tatsunoko Vs Capcom and so forth. What do you think of this series? What is your favorite entry? Most importantly, what crossovers would you like to see Capcom do in the future?

I for one think that one day there needs to be a Shonen Jump vs Capcom, considering the former had at least 3 series that influenced Street Fighter and based on how Marvel Vs Capcom had its aforementioned beginnings as X-men Vs Street Fighter, I think that it's only logical that one day it further evolves into Disney Vs Capcom.

Feel free to elaborate and suggest what potential crossovers we could see from good old Capcom.

Nintendo vs. Capcom.

Kinda surprise that hadn't been done. Capcom arguably almost if not as big of an library of IPs as Nintendo does.

I have wanted to see that for a long time to be frank. However, since more and more Capcom IPs enter Smash Bros as time goes by, I see less reasons for a full blown Nintendo Vs Capcom.

Capcom is too cartoony for anything beyond VS. Marvel, Tekken and Nintendo.

Chris and Nemesis were severely watered down and belong to Capcom, so they as a brand didn't get much choice in the matter.

This may seem random, but I'll never understand all these "Leon would just be a Chris clone" comments I keep reading in MvCI/MvC4 character wishlist threads. No, he wouldn't. Their fighting styles are NOTHING alike. Leon does a lot of kicks and wrestling throws while Chris is more of a brawler and heavy gunner, so Leon would be a rushdown-grappler hybrid as opposed to Chris, who's a heavy hitter/zoning character. You can quite easily put them both in the game and have them play different.

A lot of roster wishlists I've seen have either Chris and Leon or Leon/Punisher, who would pretty much be Marvel's answer to Chris.

Hell, watch this RE Vendetta clip and tell me they'd play the same (skip to 1:43):



That'd be awesome if they put Leon in the next Capcom crossover (and why the hell not fresh off REmake 2?) and gave him the pistol hold counters.

The fact that more and more Capcom characters are making it into Smash, I frankly see little reason.

It would also have to be Switch exclusive.

Which wouldn't be a problem for me seeing how I own a Switch, but I'd prefer their crossover fighters be multiplatform. PS3 and 360 owners damn sure would've loved to have been able to play Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

Dragonball vs Street Fighter is what we need. Hadouken vs Kamehameha.

Well, more Capcom characters are being added with each new Smash Bros, so making a Nintendo vs Capcom is kinda redundant.
We need Godzilla vs Monster Hunter. Nah, just kidding but imagine.

Hey I got an idea! Namco vs. Capcom!

Yeah I know the properties have crossed over before,but that was an RPG game
I'm talking about the classic Capcom crossover fighting style we have come to know and love.
