The European version of SNK Vs. Capcom Card Fighters DS won't launch with the game-breaking bug that's been crippling American copies.
Not like this. This isn't how the story's meant to go. No, this should be the tale of the underdog made good, of the unknown fighter hoisted high upon critical shoulders, receiving the praise and mainstream adulation that should rightfully have been his eight long years ago.
We should be writing about how the plucky little card-battling guy stuck two fingers up at fate and circumstance, threw off the need for a GDP-size development budget to punch above his weight and deliver a miraculous victory. This should be about faith and justice and redemption. This is meant to have been the redemptive life developer SNK should have lived but, instead, it ends up just being the story of how SNK actually lived: A sorry tragedy of squandered potential, wasted talent, vision clouded and international humiliation.
Let's go back a bit.
SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters DS will be released this spring, according to Ignition and Atari.
SNK's pledged its support for Wii and DS, starting with a collection of Metal Slug arcade titles for Nintendo's next-gen home console.
