Card Fighters Project Immortalises Neo Geo Pocket's 'SNK vs Capcom Card Fighters Clash' As Physical Card Game

card-fighters-project-immortalises-neo-geo-pockets-snk-vs-capcom-card-fighters-clash-as-physical-card-gameIn the late 90s Nintendo released a perfect port of their physical deck-duelling epic, the Pokemon Trading Card Game. The Neo Geo Pocket Color's equivalent, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash, however, remained a digital only battle - at least until one fanatic decided to replicate the entire game in a desirable collectable card set.

The complexity and addictiveness of SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash has since pushed the card-shuffler to the top of many Neo Geo Pocket top game lists, and quite rightly so. While Japan might have been the only region lucky enough to receive the Neo Geo Pocket sequel, SVC: Card Fighters 2 Expand Edition, the rest of the world was gifted a Nintendo DS follow up, SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS.

Card Fighters Project is an immortalisation of the original Neo Geo Pocket titles, featuring a massive selection of 424 individually created trading cards, all featuring full colour artwork. Although some might argue that fan-made projects lack the finesse of their source material, the Card Fighters Project is quite the opposite - an impressively detailed and well designed alternative to the handheld title.

Although there are downloadable artwork sheets available for those wanting to print their own sets, the individual behind the project is currently looking for places to get these cards printed professionally as cheap as possible - potentially hinting that these sets might be purchasable in the near future.

ive been reading into these for a while now, very interested in seeing decks for sale as id happily pay to flick through the artworks alone, let alone get to play a physical version of the awesome neo geo pocket game.
