SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium is a fighting game for the Neo-Geo Pocket Color. It features a total of 26 characters from SNK and Capcom, eight of which are unlockable. Play options includes 2-fighter tag teams, 3-fighter queue teams, and of course, fighting solo. After that, you can choose either a Capcom-style level meter, an SNK-style charge meter, or a 'neutral' meter that enhances super attacks if full.

Characters from Ghosts 'N Goblins SeriesEdit

In Olympic Mode, the minigame Ghost Trick has the player controlling Arthur to search for treasure while avoiding Red Arremers.


Every character also has their own rival, whom they will fight at the fourth stage. The last two stages have you fighting the tag team of Geese and Bison, then, depending what the side opposite to your character's is, Orochi Iori or Evil Ryu.

As a side feature, there is Olympic mode, where you can play themed minigames such as blasting Mars aliens FPS-style (lifted from the final boss of Metal Slug 2) or helping Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins hop pits to snatch up treasure, as well as there being time-attack, first strike, and survival events. Your performance in these games earns you special vs. points which you can use to unlock a special attack for each character.

The Match of the Millennium is capable of linking with such other games as the Card Fighters Clash series and even the Dreamcast version of Capcom vs. SNK, but the only purpose this serves is data transfer.

The use of both companies' material is quite extensive, from every character having their theme playing (not always from the first games they appeared in), to the featuring of stages from both universes. There is also interesting screens shown when this game is used in a monochrome Neo Geo Pocket, with such things as Alex (Street Fighter) and K' staring at each other, Shermie dressed up as Morrigan (to Yashiro and Chris (King of Fighters)' awe), Morrigan herself donning a suit like that of M. Bison (at which Balrog and Vega stare in embarrassment), Chun-Li doing her taunt pose while Li Xiangfei plays a Neo Geo Pocket, and Lilith and Kaede (The Last Blade) playing Neo Geo Pocket together.
